Puma Phone Unveiled – The Design of the Next Generation
The Puma Phone is finally announced and is aimed at a youthful market inspired by sports and entertainment. There are many perks and some shades but at the end of the day, you would be happy to replace your pocket money with the Puma Phone. We couldn’t rest well at home without knowing what it sports and what it could offer us. So we decided to take a closer look and here’s our take on it.
What you’re looking at…
The Puma phone comes with a funny calculator. Every time something as simple as addition or subtraction is attempted, the calculator taunts. How naughty! There is an audio player with a turntable you could even scratch. The Puma Phone comes with an integrated solar cell with a charge indicator, touch screen measuring 2.8 inches and a camera of 3.2 megapixels that comes with an LED flash and bluetooth capabilities. With the Sagem built Puma Phone, the Puma company takes one huge step deep into mobile phone territory.
The sunny side…
-The Puma Phone is very light. It weighs only 115 grams. Honestly, you would not feel its weight in your pocket.
-The phone especially targets athletes and therefore, is equipped with state- of- the art GPS plus geotagging support.
-We are very excited to learn that the Puma Phone can be used as a VAG camcorder. Why? The phone proudly boasts full screen video playback, progressive video download and video streaming and recording capabilities. In addition, the camera has the ability to zoom in 6 times. It can also be used as a device for video chatting.
- The great battery life supports conversations for a total period of 5 hours and 40 minutes.
-FM radio keeps you in touch with radio stations while being on that long jog. You didn’t think they would forget that did you?
The shady side…
-It’s heart breaking not to hear of any plans for a North American Launch anytime soon. But here’s the good news. The phone is set to launch in April and Europeans will get their hands on it first. After the initial European release the phone will be launched worldwide. We’ll happily wait a little longer.
-The interface is somewhat laggy but looks on the bright side. The interface is also very user friendly so the lag didn’t feel more than a pinch.
-While it does carry a solar panel, the phone takes a while to charge. This won’t bother you in the long run when you get used to it.
We don’t know what the price is going to be since that has been kept in the dark but, after what we’ve shared with you, we do know that with the release of Puma’s smart solar Puma Phone, there is sure to be more smiles than frowns. We’ve got our eyes peeled, our ears up and our fingers crossed while looking forward to the smart phone’s debut and you should too.
