NEC Corp. looks like it is setting the standards for third generation mobile handset performance with two new video mobiles for the 3 network. These are the new e616 and e313 handsets, the company's fourth and fifth such devices to appear in Great Britain where the scarcity of third-generation handsets is still a big problem for networks' take-up. With these devices, users and customers can browse exclusive and continually updated video content on a 35x43 millimeter, full-colour, high-resolution screen. They both feature Java technology for the latest applications, including a built-in MP3 player for music on the move, and a memory card slot for a Sony MemoryStick Duo. The clamshell e616, measuring just 103x53x26.4 millimeters and weighing 131 grams, boasts a speakerphone and encases two built-in zoom cameras--one on the front and one on the back--to enhance both the ease and quality of video calls and to allow conversation while pointing the camera at the object under discussion. The cameras can be used to take video clips and still images, which can be sent to other mobile users by Multimedia Messaging Services or e-mailed to a personal computer anywhere in the world. e313 has an integrated rotating camera with digital zoom for video clips and still images transmission.
