PHS Phone Doubles as Digital Cordless


NEC Corp. has launched a mobile phone that works with the public PHS network and business or industrial digital cordless terminals, the Carrity-NS.

The phone supports from 32Kbps to 64Kbps PHS data transmission. It features high-speed handover when used within a company compound or plant that automatically selects the best base station even while the user is in motion.

Measuring 40 by 120 by 20mm and weighing about 70g, the Carrity-NS records conversations with a single button. Users can preset onscreen icons to signal incoming voice messages. The LCD panel has 8,580 pixels, double the resolution of the company’s previous models. This facilitates the display of icons and complex Chinese characters (kanji).
