HTC TyTN II, one of the worlds most innovative smart phones coming to Japan

HTC TyTN II becomes EMOBILEs first handset supporting broadband voice, the S11HT (EMONSTER)!

Tokyo HTC Corp. (HTC, TAIEX: 2498), the worlds leading provider of Microsoft Windows Mobile-based smart devices, announced the introduction of the HTC TyTN II (Titan Two) to the Japanese market. The HTC TyTN II has won acclaim in many countries throughout the world as the innovation standard for smart phones with its fully-functional and unique design and powerful high-speed connectivity that enable users to get the most out of their smart phone

The HTC TyTN II is to go on sale in Japan on Friday, March 28, 2008 via wireless carrier EMOBILE Ltd., under the product name S11HT (EMONSTER). The HTC TyTN II is EMOBILEs first handset supporting broadband voice services.

The HTC TyTN II is the eighth model in the HTC lineup to appear in Japan (including models scheduled for future release), and is the result of HTCs more than 10 years of experience developing Windows Mobile devices. The 2.8-inch large LCD touch screen slides out to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard for easy input, with a tilt-up screen design that allows viewing from any angle. The device can be used to check email while out and about, or to relax and enjoy Web browsing. Moreover, when used as a telephone, the QWERTY keyboard can be closed and the number dialed from the touch screen. The HTC TyTN II is a truly unique and stylish handset allowing users to freely adjust the handset to the style most suited for their desired use.

This manifestation of the HTC TyTN II handset, the S11HT EMONSTER, customized specifically for the Japan market provides a wealth of connectivity options including high speed 3.6Mbps HSDPA, 3G (W-CDMA), wireless LAN and Bluetooth, allowing users to leverage the easiest and most stress free connection for their current location or use. Its built-in GPS functionality, when combined with such 3rd party software as Google Maps Mobile or NAVITIME, allows the device to also serve as a personal navigation device. Of course, these powerful specifications are supported with Windows Mobile 6 Professional, Microsofts latest OS which allows users to access all the possibilities brought by the Windows Mobile platform, from business to entertainment activities.

Since its release last autumn in Europe, North America, and many Asian countries, the HTC TyTN II, with its unique combination of powerful functionality and connectivity in addition to its unique style and design, has already won support from many smart phone users. HTCs partnership with EMOBILE to bring this best-selling smart phone to Japan is regarded as a very important step for HTC Japan, which expects the introduction of this device to accelerate the growth of the domestic smart phone market.

E-Mobiles new approach to the world of mobile broadband is unique in the Japanese market and HTC is honored to be a strategic partner in this effort, said Peter Chou, president and CEO of HTC Corp. The introduction of the HTC TyTN II is a significant step forward for the Japanese smartphone market.

The S11HT will be sold in Japan by EMOBILE offering full compatibility with EM Mobile Broadband, an HSDPA communication service offered by EMOBILE, and is the first EMOBILE device to offer voice services. In addition to both making and receiving telephone calls, the device can also be used for mobile email, short mail, and full browsing of PC sites.

Nokia and University of Cambridge launch the Morph - a nanotechnology concept device

New York, US and Espoo, Finland - Morph, a joint nanotechnology concept, developed by Nokia Research Center (NRC) and the University of Cambridge (UK) - was launched today alongside the "Design and the Elastic Mind" exhibition, on view from February 24 to May 12, 2008, at The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Morph features in both the exhibition catalog and on MoMA's official website.

Morph is a concept that demonstrates how future mobile devices might be stretchable and flexible, allowing the user to transform their mobile device into radically different shapes. It demonstrates the ultimate functionality that nanotechnology might be capable of delivering: flexible materials, transparent electronics and self-cleaning surfaces. Dr. Bob Iannucci, Chief Technology Officer, Nokia, commented: "Nokia Research Center is looking at ways to reinvent the form and function of mobile devices; the Morph concept shows what might be possible".

Dr. Tapani Ryhanen, Head of the NRC Cambridge UK laboratory, Nokia, commented: "We hope that this combination of art and science will showcase the potential of nanoscience to a wider audience. The research we are carrying out is fundamental to this as we seek a safe and controlled way to develop and use new materials."

Professor Mark Welland, Head of the Department of Engineering's Nanoscience Group at the University of Cambridge and University Director of Nokia-Cambridge collaboration added: "Developing the Morph concept with Nokia has provided us with a focus that is both artistically inspirational but, more importantly, sets the technology agenda for our joint nanoscience research that will stimulate our future work together."

The partnership between Nokia and the University of Cambridge was announced in March, 2007 - an agreement to work together on an extensive and long term programme of joint research projects. NRC has established a research facility at the University's West Cambridge site and collaborates with several departments - initially the Nanoscience Center and Electrical Division of the Engineering Department - on projects that, to begin with, are centered on nanotechnology.
Elements of Morph might be available to integrate into handheld devices within 7 years, though initially only at the high-end. However, nanotechnology may one day lead to low cost manufacturing solutions, and offers the possibility of integrating complex functionality at a low price.
