Rip, mix, burn – your phone calls

$900 is crazy expensive, but this is a really neat idea – “The FeaturePhone 175 can be used as an ordinary recorder at any time. It can be used as a dictating device and to record meetings by using the internal microphone, but it can also be connected to a special conference microphone, available as an option, or for that matter to any other microphone or audio source…Think of a FeaturePhone 175 CD as a database. Both the actual telephone and your PC can search the CD quickly using a range of criteria such as telephone number, date, time and duration of a call.” You can also encrypt the phone call recordings – [via] Link.

  1. Looks great – the kit for the prototype unit on the e-ink site lists for $3K!

    Anyone know the contrast numbers? I’d heard that early prototypes were 1:10 to 1:50.

    A couple of obvious user interface nits
    – the next/prev buttons are counter intuitive. Next should be right/down
    – Its a left-dominent design, but most americans are right handed. At the very least they should have reveresed the menu and large next/previous buttons to make it hand-neutral
    – can we trust Sony to come out with a product that isn’t over-DRM-engineered?
