First Verizon offers new PIM solutions then Sprint launches new mobile phones. You’ve got to now decide if you want a Treo (by Palm) or advanced cellular phone.
Sprint (NYSE:FON) is truly enabling mobile professionals to have an office in their pocket with the Sprint PCS Vision(SM) Smart Device PPC-6601, the much-anticipated, full-color Sprint PCS Phone featuring Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 software and embedded Bluetooth(R) Wireless Technology. Marketed by Audiovox, the PPC-6601 will be available early next month exclusively through Sprint business channels for a suggested retail price of $629.99. Later this year, Sprint plans to offer another version of the device, the Sprint PCS Vision Smart Device PPC-6600, which will include an embedded VGA-quality camera with flash and video capability. This second version of the device will be offered nationwide in all Sprint sales channels, including Sprint Stores and online at http://www.sprintpcs.com/.
“Sprint is pleased to launch a product that extends our collection of Smart Devices and underscores our commitment to being a leader in solutions for the mobile workforce,” said Harry Campbell, president – Emerging and Mid Markets, Sprint Business Solutions. “The PPC-6601 and PPC-6600 combine empowering software, compelling wireless voice and data capabilities, and an easy-to-handle form factor to create a device powerful enough to truly unleash business professionals from their desk without sacrificing productivity.”
Powered by the Intel(R) XScale(TM) 400 MHz processor, the PPC-6601 offers 128 MB of memory and has the most capacity of any other Sprint wireless device, allowing users to view, create and edit documents; send and receive email or text messages; browse the Web; and listen to news, music and other audio clips faster and easier than ever before. Slimmer and more compact than other Sprint Windows Mobile-enabled Pocket PC devices of the past, the PPC-6601 offers both Portrait and Landscape viewing modes and multiple data-input methods, including a slide-to-hide Qwerty keyboard for easy management of documents and email. The removable lithium ion battery provides up to 3.6 hours of continuous digital talk time or up to six days of continuous digital standby time.
