The MDDI standard increases reliability and reduces power consumption in clamshell phones due to the significant decrease in the number of wires that run across the handset's hinge to interconnect the digital baseband controller with the LCD display.
Further accelerating the market transition to 65k color, the LDS184 65k color STN LCD driver IC is a highly integrated and cost effective solution that is optimized for enabling color displays in value-segment handsets and color sub displays in clamshell phones.
The MDDI standard, an optimized high-speed serial interconnection technology developed by QUALCOMM, increases reliability and reduces power consumption in clamshell phones by decreasing the number of wires that run across the handset's hinge to interconnect the digital baseband controller with the LCD display.
We are optimistic that we can build on the success of the second half of 2003 with exciting new products like the P900, T630, T230 and our first two clamshell phones, the Z600 and Z200, as well as innovative products for the Japanese market.
With the new products including three clamshell phones and the world's smallest 3G GSM/WCDMA phone, Ollila commented that, "We have now sharpened our product portfolio in key areas, bringing to the market new phones in the mid-range, and adding more clamshells to our offering.
The off-center placement of the round status display and the uniquely shaped 5-way navigation key create a phone that breaks away from the conventional design of most other clamshell phones available today.
