Siemens displays Pendent and Wristphone at Gitex 2002
At the opening of Gitex 2002, the Crown Prince of Dubai and Minister of Defense, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum stopped by at the Siemens Mobile stand to have a look at the prototypes displayed, two of which were the Siemens Pendant Phone and the Siemens’ Wristphone.
Today communication and lifestyle is interwoven – a mobile phone can also double up as an accessory. For instance, the pendant phone developed by Siemens Mobile, though still at the prototype stage, will be developed to be a lifestyle accessory when it hits the market.
The little blue-and-gold apparatus has a voice-activated telephone that enables you to dictate text messages and an integrated MP3 player with 64MB storage capacity, as well as a camera that takes pictures in high resolution JPEGs.
