Part Two: More Mobile Phones Jostle for Attention - Page 4


Kyocera had a small booth, but much more exciting designs. I was particularly taken by the Koi, a twist phone.

I just love the idea of a phone that folds out, like a Swiss army knife or a pocket magnifying glass.

The Koi is another megapixel camera phone, with a 1.2 megapixel CCD. It also allows for MPEG4 video recording and includes 16 MB of internal storage. Its tri-band CDMA- and CDMA2000-compatible. The Koi, set to ship by June, will come in two colors: silver/metallic and blue/satin.

I was also impressed by the slimness of Kyoceras KZ860. Its no thicker than a few business cards, which will make it very portable. Alas, itll only be toted around by users in China.
