Coby does 5-inch crossover with newest Android smartphone


It used to be that any phone with a 4-inch screen was too enormous for everyday use. But in an age when the mobile landscape is gearing toward larger displays, US mobile device innovator Coby takes on the challenge and finally crosses over to the 5-inch realm of Android smartphones with its recent release, the CMP 500.

Fusing a 5-inch full HD IPS display with heavy duty features, the CMP 500 offers an astonishing tablet-like performance with the handiness of a mobile phone – at a consumer-friendly price.

It features a speedy 1.2 GHz dual core processor and longer battery life for fast and enjoyable downloads and Internet surfing.

With its ultra slim and lightweight black profile and Android 4.1 OS, the CMP 500 was especially engineered to deliver unsurpassed Web and multimedia experience. It comes with preinstalled applications including an e-book reader, in addition to over 500,000 fun apps you can download via Google Play Store.

To add to the visual experience, the CMP 500 also features dual cameras that take clear and vibrant images and videos. Capture images in portrait and landscape with automatic gravity sensor, then easily upload them in one touch. Bluetooth and a USB slot are also available for convenient transfer of files.

However, the most outstanding feature of the CMP 500 is its GPS and quad band integration, which makes it capable of geo-tagging and mapping functions and compatible to any GSM band around the globe. In addition, it has a dual SIM and dual standby mode to let users access two SIMs simultaneously without needing to switch the phone off. Truly a phone that lives up to the promise of allowing users to stay digitally connected wherever they are in the world.
