showcased their latest dual screen smartphone prototype at the CEATEC 2010 electronics show on in Japan. According to reports Fujitsu has unveiled a concept phone. Continua Health Alliance
has certified this phone for conforming to its guidelines of interoperability with personal health devices. Whether Fujitsu will be manufacturing this mobile phone,
which is aimed at future LTE data transmission services and cloud based mobile services, remains still unannounced. But the handset looks something like the Nintendo DS gaming device. When closed this multimedia phone
looks similar to a clamshell type device. Once opened it can assume portrait orientation of the screens, one above the other. If twisted to landscape orientation, the screens park side by side. Movement of hand or finger in a direction can make images, icons or files swing over to the adjacent screen with continuity in both orientations like a dual touchscreen desktop.
It would be relevant to note that NTT DoCoMo
is all set to launch this December their LTE network
which is capable of 75Mbps, much faster speeds than present 3G.
This is the very first mobile phone
that the Continua Health Alliance
has certified as inter-operable with personal health devices. pulse oximeters, blood glucose meters, blood pressure cuffs and the like which are Bluetooth-enabled can be now linked to this new phone. It would make health management easier and reduce costs for patients and senior citizens of Japan initially and later in other countries.
