First Introduced at Mobile World Congress this year, the Puma phone from Sagem Wireless and Puma AG is now available for purchase in 11 European countries for a retail price of 399 Euro (about $485). To refresh your memory, this solar powered phone is equipped with a 2.8-inch 240 x 320 touchscreen display, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 6x zoom, a front facing VGA camera for video calling, a microSD card slot (2GB card included), a music player, an FM radio, GPS, Bluetooth and a built-in solar cell on its back. The Puma phone is also heading to Africa and the Middle East in the next few weeks. [Cell Phone Hits]
Puma and Sagem have introduced a new handset at the Mobile World Congress show in Barcelona. Being marketed as an active smartphone, the Puma Phone comes jam packed with a built-in solar charger, a 2.8-inch touchscreen display with 240 x 320 resolution, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 6x zoom, a VGA camera for video calling, an FM tuner, GPS sensor for geo-tagging and Bluetooth connectivity. The phone has a built-in music player that allows for DJ-like virtual spinning and scratching. Active individuals can access the phone’s pedometer, GPS tracker and stopwatch functions. The Puma Phone will be released in Europe in April before launching in international markets. No info on pricing so far. [Electronista]
French company, Sagem, will release a cute phone that is more than likely geared towards female called the My411C Lulu Castagnette cell phone. The My411C features a white champagne color with teddy bear designs, a VGA camera for pictures and video clip capturing, WAP 2.0, mp3 player, and bluetooth connectivity. I’d say this phone is focused more on image than specs. There’s no word on how much it’ll cost you or release. [justamp]
