New Siemens Phone Gets Emotional
Sep 10, 2004, 9:40 AM by (staff)
Siemens mobile today announced the CX70 EMOTY, a new phone designed to better communicate emotions via MMS. Built in to the sides of the phone are unique stroke, press and shake sensors, which are used to control animated 3D characters, to express the users' moods. The conveyed emotion can then be sent as an animation to any MMS-capable phone. The phone comes with three EMOTY 3D characters - Laura, Joey, and Wobble - and additional characters, including Garfield, will be downloadable. Like the previously-announced CX70 on which the phone is based, the CX70 EMOTY also features an integrated VGA camera with video recording, email, instant messaging, and Push-to-Talk capabilities (operator-dependent). The phone will be available in Europe and Asia Pacific in Q4 2004.
