Emblaze Mobile gets ready to scorch the smartphone market


A hitherto modest Israeli company called Emblaze Mobile has set out to challenge the smartphone majors such as HTC, RIM and Apple in (what else but) introducing smartphones that are rumored to have some key enhancements - welcome the Emblaze Edelweiss and Emblaze Monolith. Emblaze Mobile has apparently set its sights on leaving the competitor products gasping for breath with the launch of Edelweiss (October 2008) and Monolith (2009).

And gasp we sure did when we found out about the resolution that the Emblaze Edelweiss sports – a 3.5 inches touchscreen at 480x854 pixels, the highest currently available on smartphones. The other features, however, are not so extraordinary – GSM & 3G connectivity, built-in GPS system and 8/16GB memory. There are few details at this point other than the confirmation by Russian carrier MTS that it will shore up the device in Russia this month. The Emblaze Monolith will be based on Linux and is being put together by Sharp and the software group Access. The device will integrate GPS, telephony and messaging, web browsing, and a mobile media player, together with a touch sensitive display, a high-end camera and “virtually every wireless connectivity technology known to man.” Well, we are waiting; after all, we all love a good fight, don’t we?
