One of the upcoming features mentioned in our previous KoreCoin articles is called KOREPhone. At first, I assumed this was just another functionality for their KoreVoIP solution, but it turns out KOREPhone is an actual smartphone. Some more details have been provided in a recent press release, so let’s take a look!
The KOREPhone will integrate the KoreCoin system for both commerce and communication purposes, which opens up a lot of possibilities for both consumers and merchants alike. One of those features is sending wallet transactions anonymously, by using the KORE network.
Like we have seen from the KoreVoIP functionality, users are able to call other users through their KORE wallet address. The same functionality will be available on the KOREPhone, removing the need to remember phone numbers or even add contacts.
Don’t be mistaken though, as the KOREPhone is still a smartphone which offers the traditional functions as well. Making a regular phone call by dialing a number or selecting someone in your contacts list will also be possible.
The KOREPhone will come with some essential applications, which are currently available for alpha testing. All of the KoreCoin client functionalities, such as market information and KoreVoIP functionalities, will be coming to the KOREPhone as well.
The KORE team is currently in talks with various manufacturers around the world in order to bring the KOREPhone to market at a fair price. A ‘call to arms’ will be sent out to the developers worldwide so they can modify their applications in order to be compatible with KOREPhone technology. Keep an eye on the XDA Forums for this call to action.
