BOURNEMOUTH, England and TAIPEI, Taiwan, March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- CCww and Arisetek announce today that they have signed an agreement whereby CCww supplies its proven­ GSM/GPRS stack solution for Arisetek to create a family of compelling handset designs based on NXP's AeroFONE(TM) single-chip phone. Arisetek's handsets use the headroom in the AeroFONE(TM)'s ARM-9 instead of a separate application processor to run a full graphical MMI, music player, and camera, combining low profile, low power consumption and minimal BoM with high-level handset value and performance.

Quad-Band & HR/FR/EFR/AMR Candy bar: 105x45x15.5mm; 115g MicroSD (T-Flash) MP3 player FM Stereo with headset Li-Ion cell package; 180 mins talk; 175 hr standby 1.5" TFT Transmissive/Negative (1.8, 2.1 option) 2M Pixel CMOS Camera; capture still and video MMI with: Phone Book, Games, IME tool, Calculator, Clock, Alarm Clock, Calendar, 40 polyphonic/MIDI/MP3 ring tones USB 2.0 High Speed Mains & USB charger
