Puma phone bounds into UK shops

Bookmark and Share

The Puma sports themed phone (produced in conjunction with Sagem) ships today in the UK.

It’s a smartphone especially designed for sporty types, with extras like a pedometer, so you can see how far you’ve run, and a yachting compass, so you can tell which direction you’re sailing in. It’ll be all the rage at the Americas Cup, doubtless.

It also boasts stuff like a Live sports app, and a solar charging panel on the rear of the handset.

Parts of the interface are nifty, too. The screen brightness control, for example, features cloud and sun icons – you drag the cloud towards the sun to obscure it and dim the screen. Okay, it’s a tiny little touch, but a neat one.

In terms of traditional specs, the Puma phone comes with a 2.8 inch display, a 3.2 megapixel camera, HSDPA, GPS, and a second front-facing camera for video chatting duties.

The price for all this? The European tag is 399 Euros sim-free, so we’ll just have to see how that translates into pounds, and whether any networks will carry and subsidise the handset.
