Nenodoe N2 new colors
Sweden-based Neonode announced on Tuesday it will add four vibrant new colors to its N2 cellular phone. Originally offered only in black, Neonode's web store now offers the quad-band GSM phone in Lime (green), Azure (blue), Rubine (red) and Roza (pink). The phone features an optical 2-inch touchscreen with a programmed Neno user interface that uses various finger sweeps across the screen as shortcuts. It is not yet available in the US, but Neonode mentions the new colors are meant to help the company bring the phone to new markets as it attempts to boost sales.
The N2 was launched last August and has sold 31,000 units in the fourth quarter of last year, prompting Neonode to move up the launch of the new colors.
The phone is Bluetooth enabled and holds audio files in MP3, WMA and WAV formats on a miniSD card. The phone's built-in 2-megapixel camera can capture still images or videos in MPEG and WMV formats.
To date, the N2 has been sold in Europe, but it has been rumored that Neonode will announce the N2 for US consumption and launch it Stateside sometime in 2008.
