Kyocera phone uses LCD display as speaker
Kyocera Corporation has released a new mobile phone called
"URBANO PROGRESSO" with a Smart Sonic Receiver
technology which transmits clear voice quality to the user
directly through vibrations in the handset's LCD display
screen by using advanced ceramic technology.
The smart sound receiver which replaces the traditional
speaker uses a piezo-electric actuator to create vibrations
along a wide area of the display screen which in turn transmits
clear voice quality to the user. This is the first smartphone
in the world to be equipped with this function.
Since the vibrations cover a wide area of the screen, the
user is able to hear clear voice quality regardless of where
their ear is placed. The outside noise can be muted by pressing
the whole screen against your ear to create a cover, making
it is easier to hear in crowded and noisy environments.
Another intersting feature of this phone is URBANO PROGRESSO
is compatible with WiMAX high-speed Internet service with
speeds of up to 40 Mbps (down) and 15.4 Mbps (up).
