BOURNEMOUTH, England and TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 5 /CNW/ - CCww and
Arisetek announce today that they have signed an agreement whereby CCww
supplies its proven GSM/GPRS stack solution for Arisetek to create a family of
compelling handset designs based on NXP's AeroFONE(TM) single-chip phone.
Arisetek's handsets use the headroom in the AeroFONE(TM)'s ARM-9 instead of a
separate application processor to run a full graphical MMI, music player, and
camera, combining low profile, low power consumption and minimal BoM with
high-level handset value and performance.
The first handset designs will be available for immediate manufacture
from Q2/08 onwards, and have the following outline features and options:
Quad-Band & HR/FR/EFR/AMR
Candy bar: 105x45x15.5mm; 115g
FM Stereo with headset
Li-Ion cell package; 180 mins talk; 175 hr standby
1.5" TFT Transmissive/Negative (1.8, 2.1 option)
2M Pixel CMOS Camera; capture still and video
MMI with: Phone Book, Games, IME tool, Calculator, Clock, Alarm Clock,
Calendar, 40 polyphonic/MIDI/MP3 ring tones
USB 2.0 High Speed

partner, and we're excited to be working with Arisetek's very experienced team
of engineers," said Richard Carter, MD and CTO of CCww. Allen Liang, President
of Arisetek, added, "CCww was recommended to us by an existing licensee, and I
