Philips Xenium 9@9 phone line. Stays up almost forever!

You forgot to charge your cellphone or had a really long talk and your phone died in the middle of the conversation? Quite a familiar situation, isn’t it?

Now Philips has a solution for you. The phones that can stay up without charging for more then a month. That’s right Philips Xenium 9@9 phone line on standby can last up to 40 days.

There are 3 Xenium phones currently offered by Philips on its Hong-Kong site:

Philips Xenium 9@9a 9@9d 9@9t cellphones

Philips Xenium 9@9a (pictured on the left) is the most basic of them but has the longest battery life, with talk time of up to 10 hrs and standby of 40 days. Except for battery life, it’s just a phone – it works on GSM 900/1800 networks, supports SMS, EMS, MMS and WAP. Xenium 9@9a has 65K color 128×12 px, 1.5″ OLED display, 2MB of internal memory, supports polyphonic ringtones and a phonebook with 1000 entries. This candybar phone measures at 99,7 x 43,5 x 19,2 mm and weights 86 g.

Philips Xenium 9@9d (in the center) is a more advanced phone which had to sacrifice some battery life for functionality. But not much. This phone still has up to 8.5 hrs of talk time and 1 month of standby. In addition to basic phone features Xenium 9@9d adds 65K 128×160 screen, 1.3 megapixel camera, JAVA 2.0 support, works on GSM 900, 1800 and 1900 networks, USB 1.1, Bluetooth and IrDA connectivity and 18 MB of user memory. It measures at 108 x 45 x 18.5 mm and weights 96 gr.

Philips Xenium 9@9t (on the right) can be considered a smartphone. In addition to the same impressive longevity (850 hrs of stanby and 8.5 hrs of talk time and other features of 9@9d, Xenium 9@9 t comes with a 128×160 65K Touchscreen, Handwriting recognition, stylus, mp3 player and MiniSD memory expansion slot. No Bluetoooth and IrDA here.
And here we thought that Philips is out of cellphone business for good. Looks like it’s back. With a vengeance.
