Presse: Motion-Controlled Smartphone


Bekanntes Mitglied
Willkommen in der Zukunft:


Oulu, Finland & Reading, UK, 17th June 2003 – An entirely new usability
concept for smartphones was unveiled today that will radically shake-up the
mobile device market. mydevice, designed by Finnish company MyOrigo,
and powered with intent®, the multimedia software platform from Tao
Group, makes use of unique motion control and ‘touch & feel’ technologies.
Consumers can make calls, search the web, schedule meetings, take
pictures, send emails, view & edit documents and much more in a
completely intuitive way.

mydevice Functionality
Suitable for both business and consumer use the device incorporates the
latest mobile phone functionality, including multi-network support (Triband,
GSM, GPRS), texting (SMS, MMS, full QWERTY keyboard), Web browsing,
contacts book, scheduling & alerts, email, document reader, VGA camera
and an MP3 player. However, it is the user interface and the accessibility of
the services that will really set mydevice apart from other smartphones:

mydevice Key Differentiators
• Motion Control: Dominated by a 176 x 320 full colour display, the screen
adjusts as the user moves their hand to allow for tilting, scrolling and
zooming. Turning the device through ninety degrees allows the user to
choose portrait or landscape views depending on what suits the content
better. Motion control is used by all applications.


• My Book User Interface –Using the motion of flicking the corner of a
page, users of mydevice can leaf their way through documents and
windows - one of the most intuitive ways available to access data


• Mirroring – viewing web pages in full is easy on the mydevice. Imagine
yourself looking at your own face in a pocket mirror. To see you left eye
you tilt the mirror to the left, to see your mouth you would tilt the
mirror down. The principle is the same for web browsing. Imagine that
a virtual web page is projected in front of your face to see each corner
simply tip the device.


• Haptic Touch & Feel Sensitive – Touchscreens can be awkward on mobile
devices so the mydevice has a touch & feel screen. The device actually
responds as you touch the screen making it more like touching a real key
than a virtual one. The full QWERTY keyboard makes writing an SMS or
email easy. And the mydevice has done away with the fiddly stylus stick
operation, opting instead for the simplicity of finger touch.

“The network operators and branded handset manufacturers that have
already seen the device were blown away by its ‘wow’ factors. MyOrigo
already has a strong relationship with the Spanish operator Telefónica and
we are expecting to make some big announcements in other European
territories in the coming months.” Commented Johan Granholm, VP Sales &
Marketing at MyOrigo.

Tao’s intent® multimedia platform gives MyOrigo access to an unrivalled
breadth of multimedia and application execution features, such as audio,
video, media plug-ins and Java™ technology, enabling user interface and
application suite customisation.

Pricing and Availability
The mydevice will be competitively priced, dependant on retail outlets and
network subsidies. Volume high street sales will commence in the UK in the
autumn with other territories to follow.

Die finnische Firma MyOrigo hat in Oulu ein Triband-GPRS-Mobilfunktelefon vorgestellt, das auf Bewegungen reagiert und hauptsächlich über Touchscreen mit den Fingern bedient wird. Das MyDevice genannte Gerät verfügt über einen Bildschirm mit 176 × 320 Pixel bei 65.536 Farben, der automatisch in den Landscape- oder Portrait-Modus umschwenkt, wenn das Telefon um 90 Grad gedreht wird. Zeigt der Bildschirm Web-Seiten an, die in der Regel größer sind als die Display-Dimensionen, so lässt sich der sichtbare Ausschnitt einfach durch Kippen des Geräts nach oben oder unten verschieben. MyOrigo nennt diese Art der Navigation "Mirroring", weil sie an den Umgang mit einem Taschenspiegel erinnert: Nur indem man das Spiegelchen schwenkt, kann man sich von Kopf bis Fuss darin betrachten.
