Ever 360 Motion Phone
Korean cellphone maker Ever on Tuesday revealed its unique Ever 360 slider phone. The phone earns its namesake through its complete sensitivity to movement, according to the company. A built-in accelerometer recognizes any angle the phone might use, automatically rotating the picture for photos and videos to match their often wider aspect ratios. This helps for watching DMB mobile digital broadcasts, Ever says. The handset also uses this motion control for music playback and will skip tracks during MP3 playback simply through brief shaking. 2.1-channel stereo sound and a 1.3-megapixel camera complement the phone's existing media features. The phone debuts today with service provider KTF.
