Sky launches HSDPA handset fit for a Duke

Today, Korean handset maker Sky released what would be another stab at elegance by the company, in the form of an HSDPA slider phone called the Duke.

The Sky Duke will feature no less than a 2.4-inch QVGA screen, built-in music and video players, a 1.3-megapixel camera and is made from glossy material. So in short, this is a just a low-end handset that offers more of the basic features that can be found on other similarly priced phones.

The difference, however, of the Sky Duke from other low-end/ mid-market handsets is that it offers a Subway Map feature and M-Commerce functionality, although I’m betting that since the handset will only be available in Korea, these features will tailored only for the said country.


The design is at par with a few of Nokia’s or even Sony Ericsson’s latest model handsets but the Duke still carries the distinctive aura of a generic handset. But at least it tries to look good. If you’re in Korea or will be there any time soon, you can have one of these for a measly 400,000 Korean Won or about $403 USD. YOu gotta love the conversion rates.
