Samsung has chosen Bluetooth technology provider CSR Plc's BlueCore silicon to Bluetooth-enable its latest GSM mobile handset, the SGH-E720.

According to Samsung, it has achieved dimensions of only 91x45x23mm for the SGH-E720, and claims a battery life of up to 200 hours (in standby mode). CSR's BlueCore is capable of achieving deep sleep power down modes. In terms of size, BlueCore offers handset makers competitive chip footprints, enabling designers to easily slot Bluetooth into even the most compact handsets.

The SGH-E720 handset incorporates a 1.1 Mpixel camera and MPEG4 video recording facility. With almost 90MB built-in memory, the SGH-E720 is capable of storing images, Java games, video, MP3 and AAC music files, and even voice recordings. A three button external controller allows users to navigate through their MP3 collection without opening the handset.

Bluetooth technology delivered by CSR's BlueCore further enhances the user experience by allowing music, photos and ringtones to be exchanged with friends' handsets or transferred to other Bluetooth-enabled devices, including an option of printing of photos directly via a Bluetooth-enabled printer.

Mathew Phillips, VP Asia, CSR, said, "Bluetooth is now being integrated into an increasing number of mobile handsets, boosted by the increasing popularity of Bluetooth accessories and application of wireless connectivity".
