CSI Wireless Introduces Two New GSM phonesThe new Series 405 phone (February 03, 2006)
CSI Wireless Inc., a designer and manufacturer of advanced wireless and GPS products used in more than 50 countries, today announced the introduction of two new fixed wireless telephones featuring GSM technology. CSI Wireless will formally launch both phones at the 3GSM World Congress from February 13 to 16 in Barcelona, Spain.
The new Series 405 phone is an entry-level fixed wireless product for consumers wanting superior voice and text-messaging services at a very affordable price. The new Series 415 phone is for consumers wanting not only superior voice and text-messaging, but Internet and email (via a PC connection) and speaker phone capability.
Both phones are designed and built by CSI Wireless, and available to cellular carriers and retailers for their customized branding. CSI is negotiating with international distributors, and expects to announce one or more agreements soon.
Because CSI's fixed wireless products utilize existing cellular networks, they are ideal in regions where conventional copper-wire landline phone service is unavailable or unaffordable. No professional installation is required. Plug the phones - which closely resemble traditional desktop or wall-mounted phones - into electrical outlets and they're ready for use with cellular networks.
CSI Wireless offers two versions of the Series 405 phone - the Series 405a for the Americas, and the Series 405e for Europe and the rest of the world. CSI also offers two comparable versions of the Series 415 phone - the Series 415a and the Series 415e.
The Series 405a and Series 405e both feature:
- A high-performance receiver and up to two-watt output power to
ensure maximum operational range, including cellular network
- A strong back-up battery to provide three hours of emergency talk
time and 48 hours of emergency stand-by time during power outages
- SMS text-messaging
- Four-digit PIN security to limit who can make outgoing non-
- LCD back-lit screen, tilted for easy viewing
- Memory capacity for 250 phone numbers
- A user-friendly interface designed specifically for fixed wireless
- Multiple languages
- Attractive styling
The Series 415a and Series 415e phones offer all of the same outstanding features, plus:
- GPRS wireless technology to enable data transmissions via a USB
port to a personal computer for Internet and email access
- A large, tilted LCD back-lit screen for even easier viewing
- Speaker phone
- Memory capacity for 1,000 phone numbers
CSI Wireless is one of the world's leading suppliers of fixed wireless telephones - offering both GSM-based and TDMA-based models. CSI's FX800t product is the largest-selling TDMA fixed wireless phone in Latin America.
Fixed wireless phones enable rapid, low-cost telecommunications for millions of consumers in regions of the world where traditional copper-wire landline phone service is unavailable or unaffordable. Compared to portable cellular phones, fixed wireless phones provide much broader signal range and voice quality. They don't require battery recharging because they plug into standard electrical outlets.
Cellular carriers, distributors and anyone else interested in CSI's Series 405 and Series 415 phones, or CSI's other fixed wireless products, can email [email protected] and/or make an appointment with CSI representatives at the 3GSM World Congress in Barcelona (Room HS6.24 in the Fira de Barcelona Exhibition Centre) from February 13 to 16.
