|While DMB handsets continue to attract attention, at least until DMB handsets (thats Digital Media Broadcasting phones, or T.V. phones become common place) become standard; new variations of these devices keep popping in nearly every other day. We always wished for a day that would sooner rather than later that these handsets wouls hit the western shores.|
Now Curitel has come out with an intersting idea to make DMB handsets all the more popular. Remember TV's in the olden times? No remote controls, which meant you get up each time you wish to change channels. Since todays handsets have satellite access, they can tune into a score of channels. Once you set up the T.V. phone at a position that is comfortable to watch from, it is very irritating to lift it up, use the small keypad to flick the channel and set it up again. There could even be reception trouble since its not exactly fun to set up the antenna each time to recieve the best possible transmission.
Now the PT-L1800 comes with its own remote control. This lets you set up the handset on the table, put your legs up and use the remote control to effortlessly flick channels. Other features of this baby include a Tv out / PC out connection; an MP3 player (of course) ; TV capture function (record), speaker phone, GPS, T-Flash memory card etc. Also present is a rotating megapixel camera lens, its really cool since the flash also rotates along with the lens so shooting a picture in any direction is possible with the flash support.
