Fixed-line phone users in Singapore will soon be able to communicate with each other over the Short Messaging Service (SMS) platform. Using a special telephone that features an LCD (liquid crystal display) panel, users can compose, send and receive text messages just like their mobile phone counterparts. Fixed-line subscribers will also be able to communicate with cell phone users via SMS. The telephones will be available in July at Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) retail shops. According to sources, Germany's Siemens is one of the suppliers of the SMS-enabled telephone. The service is currently limited to SingTel customers. However, the company is in talks with MobileOne, StarHub Mobile and Virgin Mobile to iron out interconnection details, said SingTel spokesperson Chia Boon Chong. Irene Tham reported from Singapore.

Phone books and yellow pages usually conjure up ideas of heavy volumes marked with pens or, worse still, pages torn out. This year, however, Singapore consumers will see upcoming residential listings going onto CD-ROMs. SingTel Yellow Pages, which issues the phone books, will offer hyperlinks and interactive road maps on the CD-ROMs. This means consumers can get on the Internet to pinpoint the exact location of the addresses they want. Subscribers to residential lines will have a choice between whether they wish to bulk down with the "e-phone books" or go for the tried-and-tested paper versions. They can make their options at the distribution centers. Companies will receive their residential listings on CD-ROM format by default. "By issuing the CD-ROMs with its many enhanced features, we believe that users will find the Singapore Phone Book more user-friendly, helping them retrieve information more conveniently and efficiently," Yow Tau Keon, CEO of SingTel Yellow Pages, said in a statement. CNET Singapore's Susan Tsang reported from Singapore.
