Reigncom launched ¡®iriver WavePhone¡¯
¡× Reigncom-KT makes a mobile multimedia device with Wi-Fi
¡× Provides various multimedia services, including Bugs Music and an electronic dictionary, as well as KT Internet phone service
¡× Wide touch-screen and convenient GUI environment
On October 10, Reigncom (www.reigncom.com Myoung Woo Lee, CEO) announced that it is releasing the ¡°iriver WavePhone,¡± which is a Wi-Fi-equipped mobile phone, in cooperation with KT (www.kt.com). KT is Korea's top integrated wired/wireless communications service provider.
KT¡¯s Internet phone, the ¡°iriver WavePhone,¡± uses Wi-Fi for telecommunications, enabling voice over Internet, text messaging, and music from Bugs Music, at a much better quality than in the PC environment. The iriver WavePhone can also be used in areas where no wireless networks are available, as a call forwarding service is possible.
With a simple yet elegant design, the iriver WavePhone has a convenient graphic user interface with a touch screen, and enables the use of various services including music, videos, flash, pictures and text. The electronic dictionary, which offers hand-writing recognition software, provides a range of content services such as an English-to-Korean and Korean-to-English dictionary by YBM called e4u, a Chinese-Korean dictionary, and three types of Collins dictionaries. As well, it offers pronunciation of an actual native speaker, thus this small yet constructive device can function as a digital study-aid.
Frank Lim, product planning director at Reigncom, said ¡°The iriver WavePhone is a new-concept network device that is suitable for Wi-Fi environments. It is a highly functional product, as it provides services like the KT Internet phone service and wireless music downloads.
Dong Myun Lee, head of next generation TFT of KT, said, ¡°Telecommunications services are evolving by delivering various values according to the lifestyles of the customers. The release of the iriver WavePhone will accelerate the trend of equipping mobile multimedia devices with telecommunications via Wi-Fi.¡±
