Ericsson launches new handheld

A new handheld computer has hit the market, released by Ericsson Australia and bundled with one of the company's infrared modems for seamless connectivity to the GSM cellular network.

The MC 218 runs on the EPOC operating system (developed by the Symbian group, and also used by Psion handhelds), and includes 12MB of ROM and 16MB RAM. The MC 218's 640 x 240 screen is black and white, while its keyboard includes 53 keys and is big enough for touch-typing, says the company.

Included with the $1299 handheld is Ericsson's DI 27 Infrared Modem, which enables users of Ericsson mobile phones (series 600, 700, 800, T18 and A1018), to connect to the Internet and send e-mail faxes and SMS messages.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
