First launched in Brazil, the K112 handset includes games, calculator, ringtones, and an alarm. On a more technical note, the handset also features an internal antenna— an amazing bit of RF engineering in itself—to bypass those breakage-prone stubs and whips. From the February Planet Analog magazine folio, Portelligent's David Carey was impressed.

Convergence of functionality in handset designs is constantly raising the bar for value-added features, such as cameras, games, music playback and video capturing. It is estimated that the average cost of a handset will drop from about $125 today to $110 by 2008. In contrast, the average cost of the ICs within the handset will increase from approximately $40 today to $44.50 by 2008, as consumers demand higher functionality at a low price. A versatile application processor is key to achieving a s
