Panasonic TV phone
Claiming to mimic the design of its Viera line of Plasma televisions on a handheld device, Panasonic has introduced the P905iTV, a new sliding handset featuring "one-segment" mobile TV on Japan's DoCoMo network. The device offers frame conversion technology from 15 frames to 30 frames per second on 3.5 inch full-wide VGA large screen. The new handheld's screen has a contrast ratio ratio of 4000:1 and uses "LCD Artificial Intelligence" which adjusts the brightness of a display automatically and LSI based on "UniPhier" for mobile phone for power saving. The phone also features 3G international roaming and HSDPA, autofocus 2.0 megapixels camera with six-axis image stabilizer and link functions to audio and visual equipment.
Panasonic claims a continuous talk time of 230 minutes (3G) and 160 minutes of video playback per charge, with 660 hours of standby time. The 3.5 inch display has a 854 X 480 dots resolution with 262k colors. Also included is a microSD / micro SDHC memory card slow.
The phone is available in both black and white.
