Looks are everything with the new NEC N401i i-mode™ mobile phone

  • 04 March, 2005 13:41

<p>Functionality and form come together with NEC’s N401i. With a built-in video camera, multimedia file playback including MP3 audio, email and i-mode™ mobile internet, the N401i is your complete multimedia package.</p>
<p>Delivering previously unheard of mobile functionality, the N401i also incorporates a bright, sharp 65,000 colour display to view the rich content that i-mode delivers. Buying real estate, a new car, banking, finding your way around a new city or emailing friends on your mobile is no longer a chore while the N401i’s fabulous form is full of finesse.</p>
<p>i-mode with style
The must-have fashion accessory of 2005, the N401i’s sleek, small and stylish clamshell design and orange and blue interchangeable covers ensure that your phone will always look at least as good as you do. If you prefer to go au naturale, the N401i’s silver body is dressed to impress. The ability to display Chinese content is a bonus for those speaking English as a second language.</p>
<p>Beautifully powerful
Shoot and send video or take consecutive shots of people or views on the move using the camera’s new 9 x Burst mode. The 17x MPEG4 video camera incorporates a camera with a fast refresh rate and camera light that doubles as a torch at night, ensuring that night time memories won’t be missed. If your new life partner needs a makeover, then transform your handset by adding images to the display, use the camcorder function to add video clips as wallpaper or compose ringtones by using the in-built MP3 player to see who’s calling.</p>
<p>Fans of still photography can use the integrated camera to capture unforgettable experiences using the N401i’s seven picture formats designed to maximise creativity and picture quality.</p>
<p>Fashionably clever
It’s never been simpler to snap those defining moments. Send your favourite video clips and photographs to fellow i-mode users via i-mode mail, to other mobile users via MMS, or e-mail them to a PC anywhere in the world. Alternatively, simply browse the photographs taken on the N401i’s large colour screen.</p>
<p>The N401i ensures that you have always-on access to email and the internet anytime, anywhere, and is JavaTM enabled so all the latest applications and games are available at your fingertips. Combined with the inbuilt MP3 player, the N401i’s feature-packed form means that you’ll never go without a source of entertainment.</p>
<p>With an RRP of $539, this pocket multimedia powerhouse is a must-have for anyone looking to combine style with optimum functionality.</p>
<p>The N401i is available nationally in late February, 2005.</p>

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
