Philips is Back

Philips are back on the mobile phone market with three new handsets made for those that go on a bit. The three new 9@9 phones have a standby time of  up to 40 days.

With an extremely long standby battery life of 40 days, and a talk-time of 10 hours these phones will hardly ever need charging, perfect if you’re always on the go.

There are not a huge number of high end features but the 9@9t (right) has handwriting recognition and all the phones have a 1.3 mega pixel camera, MP3 player and SD card slot.

Philips Xenium 9@9a (left) is the most basic but has the longest battery life. Talk time up to 10 hrs and standby of 40 days. It works on GSM 900/1800 networks, supports SMS, EMS, MMS and WAP. Xenium 9@9a has 65K color 128×12 px, 1.5″ OLED display, 2MB of internal memory, supports polyphonic ringtones and a phonebook with 1000 entries. The handset measures in at 99,7 x 43,5 x 19,2 mm and weights 86 g.

Philips Xenium 9@9d (center) is a more advanced phone but had to sacrifice some battery life for functionality. This model still has up to 8.5 hrs of talk time and 1 month of standby. In addition to basic phone features Xenium 9@9d adds 65K 128×160 screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, JAVA 2.0 support, works on GSM 900, 1800 and 1900 networks, USB 1.1, Bluetooth and IrDA connectivity and 18 MB of user memory.
