Straight out of Denmark comes a trio of additions to the ever-growing Android lineup, the result of "two years of top secret international development work" by Lumigon Corp. The first phones are the T1 and S1, both shipping before July, the latter of the two offering a sliding T9 keypad, both featuring Android 2.1, Freescale processors, 720p output over HDMI, FM tuning and broadcasting, and the handy ability to act as a universal remote. Next will be the E1, coming sometime later and offering a "unique navigation system and shape never experienced in mobile phones." It's so mind-blowingly beautiful that the company hasn't deemed your or our eyes capable of beholding such a wonder, so no pictures have been released just yet. Perhaps if we spend our days in devotional contemplation we'll be mentally prepared for its eventual release.

UNIQUE SCANDINAVIAN MOBILE PHONE
BARCELONA - February 15, 2010 - After two years of top secret
international development work, Lumigon Corporation from Denmark is
launching the first exclusive models of their mobile phone range.
The models are based on open standards and Google's newest state-of-
the-art operating system Android 2.1 with a special Lumigon P-GUI
software implementation, to give the user even more user-
friendliness. Moreover, the ultra-fast Freescale i.MX51 processor is
utilized, as well as a TFT screen with capacitive touch, A-GPS, 720P
HDMI out, an FM receiver and an FM transmitter.
"The phones have foundation in the Scandinavian heritage of
contemporary design, coupled with the finest materials such as steel,
aluminum and scratch-free glass. These uniquely designed phones are
furthermore packed with features not seen in mobile phones before",
states Pekka Kotiranta, VP of Sales and Marketing, Lumigon.
Some examples of the most innovative features are a universal remote
control, which facilitates the usage of mobile phone as control for home
appliances, and an HDMI desk station which enables the phone to be
used as a source for HDTV or regular television, e.g. to see pictures or
movies, or to be used as a browser device with Lumigon's new bluetooth
The first model, T1, shall reach the shops early Q2 this year, and the
second one, S1, will be available toward the end of Q2. The difference
between the models is that T1 is an elegant touch-screen phone, whilst
S1 possesses additionally an in-built T9 keypad and slider in an
extremely small form factor. The key features are the same in both
phones. Later this year, E1, one of the most fascinating phones ever
produced, will be introduced to the market. It has a unique navigation
system and a shape never experienced in mobile phones. "E1 is the
most beautiful phone I have ever seen during my entire 10 year career
in mobile business", says Lumigon's founder Lars Gravesen.
"Interest toward the new phones has been overwhelming, pre-orders
arriving from different parts of the world. The company has decided to
launch the phones first in Nordic and selected European markets",
concludes Kotiranta, a VP level veteran from both Ericsson and Nokia.

R & D facilities in London and manufacturing in metropolitan Hong Kong
area. It is a privately held company having vast experience in consumer
electronics, mobile software and distribution. Lumigon's mobile platform
