In today’s fast paced world, it has become a necessity to have access to real-time information. Your communications tools
must provide you with this access from anywhere and anytime. With that in mind, Audiovox developed the CDM-9000,
our first Tri-Mode Web Browsing wireless telephone.
The CDM-9000 features 800 MHz Amps/CDMA and 1900 MHz CDMA Tri-mode operation for enhanced nationwide
service coverage. The digital phone features two easy to use soft keys that make surfing the web a breeze. The CDM-9000
also boasts a vibrating alert, voice recognition, and data capabilities. In addition, the phone features an enhanced phone
book with 99 Alpha/198 Numeric memory locations, one touch emergency dialing, 15 distinctive ringer options, and menu
driven operation. And with a Lithium Ion battery providing you with over 3 hours of talk time and 7 days of standby time,
you’ll have plenty of opportunity to use all of these advanced features.
The CDM-9000 cellular telephone has several optional accessories available, including: leather carrying case, extended
Lithium Ion battery, cigarette lighter plug-in charger, desktop holder, AC Adapter, Handsfree car kit and an earphone
microphone and data cable.
And, of course, your new CDM-9000 digital handset provides you with something only an Audiovox phone can: the
proven reliability that has made us one of the leading wireless handset providers.
