UTStarcom Verizon Amoi Haier  

Haier isn't a very well-known brand in this part of the world, but the one thing they are somewhat famous for is their series of "pen phones".

At CES, they were showing off the P7, the latest incarnation, and the first model Haier is specifically trying to sell to the U.S. market.


The P7 has a color display and a VGA camera. The design and interface is interesting - it's designed to be operated while held sideways, very much like the similarly-shaped Nokia 7280.

Some nice features of the P7 include class 12 GPRS, a 65,000-color display, speakerphone, and voice dialing. The P7 is also one of the few non-Motorola phones to include Motorola's iTAP predictive text-entry technology.

Haier was also showing off the G88 PalmOS PDA phone:


...which sports a sliding design and camera. By the 3rd quarter, though, the G88 is ecpected to be replaced by the G28, which will step up to Palm OS 6, while adding a memory card slot, and GSM 850. The G28 will also feature smoother lines with an internal anetenna.
