Puma Phone

Puma and Sagem have come up with The Puma Phone, the one we showed you few days back. Sagem, not a brand people are fond off. Puma has ensured every aspect of the OS and hardware is ultra-styled and feature-full.

It’s a light device, at 115g, but feature-packed with a solar panel on the back for charging by sun rays. The more you charge by the sun, the more points you collect, which can be spent in the Puma store. You can see how many extra minutes you can talk for, or play music for, or how many extra texts you can send, from charging by the sun. Little things like this which show how much attention has been paid to all the aspects of the Puma Phone’s design.

The screen is a 2.8-inch QVGA TFT, with 240 x 320 pixels. Battery life isn’t as great as some others, with just a 880 mAh component being used, but the solar panel will more than compensate for that. A 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 6x digital zoom is on the back, with a forward-facing camera for VGA video conferencing on the front.

It can be strapped to your arm or shoved in pocket to calculate your training stats, the compass and A-GPS add strength to the pedometer and GPS tracker functions.

We get back to you with full details. You can check out the official Puma Phone website for further details. Let’s see when it hits the Indian market.

Philips's Anaroid Phone

Still wondering, Yes, Philips makes phones even now. And they sell quite well. In fact, its Xenuim line-up has a nice set of regular users who still swear by it. The Xenium line up has also been in the past known for innovations like the conceptualizing and then making the first phone to run on normal AAA batteries.

Philips's Anaroid Phone

And now in 2009, when war of smartphones is going on, iPhones and the Androids, here’s Philips latest contraption, it’s first ever Android based phone! Now, this one looks quite cool and as expected, does not offer anything revolutionary over the current crop of Android handsets. In fact, the only thing revolutionary, in case you buy this one, would be the fact that you actually bought a Philips handset. The phone was leaked on a Chinese website, which claimed that they had just received the phone and that they would be reviewing it soon.

The phone is switched off so that we do not get a glimpse at the UI. A 3.2 megapixel camera which features video recording. The display is cool however. It’s a 320×480 affair and will support widgets. Soon we’ll get you more on this. Stay tuned.
