Fly MC130 to go on sale next week for $145 a piece
Music phones with built-in audio chips aren’t exactly new, but have you ever tried one with a piece from Yamaha? If you want to, then you should keep your eyes on the simple Fly MC130. I’m not sure if its name is supposed to be a joke (there’s a kind of plane called the MC130) or if there’s pun involved, but I’m getting it, if only partially.
Among its main features are the inclusion of a standard headphone jack, miniUSB connector for quick syncing of music files, and the aforementioned Yamaha audio chip. All these should already make for a good music-listening experience, but of course, that’s not all.
Here’s a quick list of the Fly MC130’s other great feats:
– Support for standard connection: GSM900/DCS1800/PCS1900 or GSM850/DCS1800/PCS1900, GPRS Class12
– Dimensions: 109h46, 5h13 mm
– Messages: SMS / EMS / MMS / E-Mail
– Display: 2-inch, a resolution 176h220 points, TFT, displaying more than 262 thousand colors
– Camera: 1.3 MP, CMOS, feature web camera, video support
– Sound: 64-s tone ringtone, support for MP3-ringtones
– Entertainment: FM-radio, MP3 player with support for microSD memory cards, video player, Java games
– Bluetooth v2.0 (including profiles A2DP, DUN, HFP, AVRCP, FTP, OPP, SPP), USB 1.1
– Other features: Alarm clock, reminders, notes, do list, calculator, calendar, Voice Memo, World Clock, Currency Converter and values, Stopwatch
It is said to be scheduled for a release early next week, with a retail price of 4,000 Russian rubles or about $145 USD. That’s just about the right price to consider it a bang-for-buck giving gadget. Anyone looking for a music phone to give to a music-loving friend for Christmas this year can have this to consider.
