Kodak & Bullitt Group partner for new range of mobile devices

This press release has been published as it is without any editing. This Website has not verified claims, if any, made it in.

London, Dec 22, 2014, PRNewswire: Iconic imaging brand Kodak and leading mobile device manufacturer Bullitt Group, have today announced that they will launch a range of Android-powered mobile devices offering best-in-class image management software and features along with great design and UI.

Aimed at – but not exclusively for – consumers who want a high-end experience but aren’t always as comfortable using increasingly complicated mobile devices as they would like to be, the range of smartphones and tablets will come pre-loaded with bespoke image capture, management and sharing features to offer a rich user experience.

In addition, advanced remote management software will be pre-installed, allowing family members and friends to provide help and support if needed.

“Kodak is one of the world’s most recognisable brands. It is trusted by consumers as a marque of quality and innovation,” says Oliver Schulte, CEO Bullitt Mobile. “We’ve taken that heritage and used it to inspire a range of beautifully designed devices that will let users take great pictures and edit, share, store and print them in an instant.”

Unlike other phones aimed at this target audience, the KODAK Mobile Device range will not compromise on design and user experience. With as much focus on design as well as usability, the range will stand out in a market segment that is currently under-served.

Adds Schulte: “Delivering simplicity without compromise, these devices will address a segment of the mobile device market that has been poorly served to date. By giving customers easy access to printing and sharing services while still offering the latest Android OS and features found on high-end smartphones, we will appeal to a large audience of users who value ease of use and stylish design as highly as they value functionality.”

Eileen Murphy, VP Brand Licensing, Kodak is excited to be entering the mobile handset market with the Bullitt Group. “We are impressed with Bullitt Group’s commitment to delivering a portfolio of products that embrace the quality and innovation that our brand is known for around the world.”

The first handset will be launched at CES 2015 on the Kodak stand in South Hall 1, Booth 21818. There will be further product announcements across the second half of 2015 including a 4G handset, a tablet and a connected camera.

The Kodak trademark is used under license by Bullitt Group, Ltd from Kodak.

Tempo smart calendar app launches in Asia

The Tempo smart calendar app can now be used in 26 countries in Asia. With the exception of China, Tempo is now available as a localized smart calendar app in just about every major country & region in the world.

tempoapppageThe latest update also includes the addition of a new widget & a whole bunch of languages including Dutch, Russian, Japanese, Polish, Korean & Swedish, among others.

The Tempo smart calendar app was already capable of being a highly efficient virtual secretary & personal assistant, providing “Insights” about people & companies, fetching related emails & documents, & matching up contacts to events without inviting.

It can send “Running Late” messages & wish your friends happy birthday on Facebook on your behalf.

If all this & the ability to create events using SIRI is not enough, you can also use it as a calendar to add & update reminders, & show your week by people, companies or events.

The new smart widget makes use of the new Today View in iOS8, where it will show you the day’s events, along with one-touch access to the contact details & insights for people you’ll be meeting. You can create & schedule events without opening the app.

A Tempo smart calendar app running on iOS8 will also be able to receive interactive notifications with contextual alerts. You can get directions, check your flight status, & dial-in to conference calls with a single tap in response to the notifications.

Another new thing is the evening notification. These are notifications sent after you finish your work day. It will summarize important events for the next day, along with relevant insights & suggested follow-ups from today’s meetings.

The Android version is not available as yet, but you can sign up for a beta test for Tempo’s Android, web, Mac & other platforms.
