Ericsson Unveils Range of New Phones at CeBIT

Swedish mobile-phone maker Ericsson unveiled three new phones at this year’s CeBIT in Hanover, Germany. Sporting smoother shapes and unique features, Ericsson hopes that these handsets, T68, T39 and T29, will challenge the competition.

Features of the New Handsets

  • The T68 features a large 256 color display, Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), digital imaging and audio capabilities, GSM and GPRS frequencies, built-in Bluetooth, and HSCSD
  • The T39 also a GPRS–enabled mobile phone that works on GSM frequencies, as well as high-speed circuit-switched networks
  • The T29 features Enhanced Messaging Service (EMS) for sending pictures and sound to other mobile phones, as well as a mobile chat and WAP1.1.

The EMS utilizes the existing messaging service and infrastructure to let users exchange pictures, and ring signals. Unlike similar technologies, EMS is an open standard enabling EMS messages to be read on phones that do not support EMS.

Ericsson expects the phones to be released by the end of this year.
