India’s first ’3D cell phone’ has been brought to the market by Spice Mobile. The handset, called the Spice M67 3D, is a dual-SIM (GSM+GSM) device that has an automatic stereoscopic display and does not require special glasses to be viewed. The phone costs about Rs. 4,300 but should be available at a street price of Rs. 3,900.
Everything on the M67’s 6-cm screen appears by default in 3D – not just 3D videos. The device has a 3D video player, 3D image viewer and 3D interface. A dedicated 3D shortcut key on the phone lets users switch between 3D and 2D modes. The screen displays resolutions of up to 240 × 320 pixels.
The M67 has a Remote Wipe feature, through which you can remotely delete the phonebook, erase the call logs, delete SMSes, format the memory card as well as the entire phone and send business cards –in case your handset is lost or stolen.
Spice’s M67 sports a 2-megapixel camera which can capture video at 10 frames per second. The camera can be configured in multiple ways – its brightness can be adjusted, it has a multi shot mode, night vision mode and can shoot widescreen video.
The phone has two stereo speakers, an FM radio and an MP3 player. The media player can play video at up to 25 fps. The M67’s internal memory, which is only 500KB, can be expanded via a microSD card slot to 16GB.
The Spice M67 supports stereo Bluetooth and the phone itself can be used as a modem – or broadband hotspot. It uses GSM network in the 900/1800 MHz band, while it can connect to the Internet using WAP, GPRS or a data cable.
Spice’s new phone supports Java applications such as games and widgets. It has many built-in apps which include an incoming call guard, to do list, voice memo, caller group, etc.
