Hauppauge, N.Y. - Personal Communications Devices (PCD) teamed up with Chicago-based carrier U.S. Cellular once again to offer the CDM8635 compact flip phone.
U.S. Cellular, the nation's sixth-largest wireless carrier, with 6.2 million subscribers, is positioning the phone as a simple solution for consumers who don't want confusing, nonessential features.
It features large external display font, voice-activated dialing, and a noise-suppressor option that makes it easier to hear a caller, as does a frequency-altering feature for hearing compensation. Four essential shortcut keys and a menu coach that explains functions are designed to simplify navigation.
The 3.9-inch by 2-inch by 0.8-inch device features 2.2-inch 260K color TFT main display, 1.5-inch mono LCD external display, 1GB flash memory, and four dedicated shortcut keys for zoom, speakerphone, alarm and picture albums.
Other features include 1.3-megapixel CMOS camera and lithium-ion 920 mAh battery delivering 4.1 hours of talktime.
It's available at U.S. Cellular retail locations and the carrier's Web site.
