TTPcom launched its InTouch range of GPRS handset and wireless module designs at the 3GSM World Congress. The designs are aimed to provide a migration path from 2G to 2.5G, and accelerate time-to-market of consumer handsets.

The Aspirational handset design is targeted at the replacement and upgrade market, while the SFF GPRS design is suitable for embedded applications. Both InTouch designs operate at the 900MHz, 1.8GHz, and 1.9GHz bands.

The designs also come with GPRS Class 10, B or C compatibility and HR/FR/EFR speech codecs. SIM Toolkit Class 3, Release 99 is supported and color displays and internal antennas are standard features.

"With InTouch, TTPCom is providing a complete design and manufacturing capability, allowing our customers to provide differentiated own-brand products. Each of the InTouch designs comes with full regulatory approval and can be manufactured in volume," said Peter Whale, InTouch product manager.

The Aspirational handsets are equipped with the company's Wireless Game Engine that provides a safe download capability for secure over-the-air download of games into the handset. An API is provided to open up the feature set of the phone to games developers.

The handsets also support WAP, EMS, MMS, J2ME, and SyncML. It also provides a 16-chord polyphonic music capability and a USB port. A T9 text entry feature, voice recognition capability, and an MMC for data storage are optional.

The SFF GPRS design has an extended AT command interface which allows complete control of the GSM/GPRS capabilities from a host. Custom software can also be added to the standard module.

The GPRS design supports embedded products such as handsets, PDAs, mobile internet devices, and machine-to-machine applications.
