ORACLE SHOWS COMPUTERLESS VIDEO PHONE USING PHILIPS SCREENPHONE

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle Corp and Philips Electronics NV subsidiary Philips Home Services demonstrated their data and video phone, including electronic mail, without a personal computer at Telecom 95 in Geneva last month. Oracle developed an Oracle Office version for Philips’ P100 screen phones, opening the messaging side of the Internet to videophones. It will be test-marketed this year by up to 20,000 P100 users. Oracle will use the alliance with the Philips subsidiary to expand its dream of worldwide communications to the mass consumer market. Our alliance gives access to electronic mail services from low-cost and convenient devices. This appeals to the 70% of the consumer market that is not currently using personal computers, and connects it with the rest of the world that is using electronic mail for timely communications, said the company.
