  • 10 April, 2008 13:57

<p>SYDNEY 19th March, 2008: Sagem Mobiles, an internationally recognised leader in quality mobile phone handsets, is proud to announce the launch of Porsche Design’s first mobile phone, the P’9521.</p>
<p>Being the brains and technological development behind the phone that combines sophistication, the purist of design with high-quality natural materials such as aluminum and mineral glass and cased out of a solid aluminum block – this is an extremely unique production method for mobile phones.</p>
<p>“Sagem invests heavily in research and development pioneering new technologies, based upon the requests and needs of our customers. The Sagem brand is being increasingly respected in Australia, beginning to match that of the European sector. Through the launching the Porsche Design mobile phone, Sagem will continue to be recognised and respected in the Australian market,” said Francois Romanet, Managing Director, Sagem Australasia.</p>
<p>Style and Design
Porsche Design has remained loyal to its clear design language and has utilized sophisticated material. The typography, styling and colours of the menu emphasize the mobile phone’s very functional character. A double hinge made from aluminum enables the screen to be rotated through 180° – thus allowing the phone to be used as a digital camera.</p>
<p>Specialised Features
The P’9521 features a fingerprint reader, which clearly identifies the user and thus ensures secure access to personal data. In addition, individual fingerprints can be assigned to particular numbers or phone functions, making operation particularly easy, with the standard PIN code can also be replaced by a fingerprint. The know-how for this technology was delivered by Sagem, which has expertise in the field of biometrics.</p>
<p>Photo/video: The P’9521 features an auto-focus video and still camera boasting 3.2-megapixel resolution, integrated flash and digital zoom. The rotating screen makes it even easier to use, whilst its AM-OLED technology ensures very high quality colours, exceptional brilliance and a perfect view from every angle.</p>
<p>Music: The P’9521 boasts an MP3 player and three speakers for ring tones and voice playback in stereo quality sound.</p>
<p>Internet: Thanks to EDGE technology (Enhanced Data Rates for GSM Evolution), the P’9521 offers very high-speed internet access.</p>
<p>Pricing and Availability
The new mobile phone will be available from March 2008 in All Phones stores and other specialist mobile-phone retailers.</p>
