Some applications may use both an internal accelerometer in a mobile phone in combination with one or more Wockets. Increasingly, accelerometers are being added to common mobile phones. Eventually we expect nearly all phones will have accelerometers. Here are the phones we are aware of at this time.
Apple iPhone (and iPod Touch). 3-axis accelerometer
LIS302DL). Data is easily available to programmers.
Nokia 5500 sportphone. 3-axis accelerometer. Data is easily available to programmers.
Nokia N70. 3-axis accelerometer. Data is easily available to programmers.
Sony Ericsson W580.
Sony Ericsson W710.
Sony Ericsson K850.
Sony Ericsson W910 Walkman Phone.
NTT DoCoMo D904i.
NTT DoCoMo Wellness Navigator (not yet released)
Apparently there are several phone versions in China with accelerometers.
HTC Touch Diamond
[Windows Mobile] -
Managed API available
HTC Touch Pro
- similar to Touch Diamond but with QWERTY keyboard
- 3-axis accelerometer
Blackberry Storm 9500
(with Adidas). Accelerometer not built in, but communicates wirelessly with a stride sensor (on show) and chest HR strap. (
Unlcear if it has a built in pedometer in addition to foot sensor.
