SAN DIEGO, June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON) today announced the launch of its new verykool® i310 handset in Latin America.
"Our new verykool® i310 is a 2G flip phone that is an upgraded version of one of our most popular selling models, the i305, which has been discontinued," said Joseph Ram, the company's president and chief executive officer. "Capitalizing on its predecessor's success, we enlarged the screen size, significantly improved the camera quality, added Bluetooth, MMS and video recording capabilities, improved battery talk time by 60% and quadrupled the T-Flash memory capacity and number of ringtones. We wanted to deliver a new and improved version to our Latin American customers who enjoyed the entry level flip phone so they can now have an enhanced and more up-to-date feature set. We are hopeful that the i310 will be as successful as its older brother and that consumers in Latin America will recognize the excellent value it delivers."
The Company noted that the i310 will be available in black, red and blue colors, and has the following features:
- Dual band (850/1900)
- 2.0" TFT LCD screen
- 1.3 megapixel camera with digital CMOS
- MP3/MP4/3GP and FM radio capability
- Voice and video recording capability
- Bluetooth connectivity
- SMS/MMS messaging
- T-flash memory expandable to 8GB
- Speakerphone, 64 polyphonic ringtones, 3.5mm audio jack and stereo headset included
The verykool® i310 is available in two versions: a single SIM version for operator customers and a dual SIM version for the open market. Both versions are available now.
