The Puma Phone is actually presented as an “active smartphone”. It boasts an interesting design that’s “engineered to facilitate and encourage an active way of life”, and a “unique user interface”. Moreover, the phone provides access to various Puma services and applications – including the ability to buy products from Puma’s official website.
Feature-wise, the Sagem Puma Phone offers a 2.8 inch QVGA touchscreen display, HSDPA connectivity, GPS, compass, pedometer, “open internet browsing with WAP Push”, FM radio, Bluetooth, 3.2MP camera with LED flash, and a VGA video call camera. The handset also comes with a solar cell on the back.
“Just as PUMA is unlike any other sportlifestyle company out there, the PUMA PHONE is unlike any mobile phone on the market,” says Jochen Zeitz, CEO of PUMA, and I guess we should believe him.
Sagem said that the Puma Phone would be launched in April. The handset should be available both online (via Puma’s website) and through various European carriers. Other international markets will get the Puma Phone later this year. The handset’s price was not announced.
