European carriers start selling the Puma Phone

Unveiled at MWC earlier this year, the Sagem-made Puma Phone has now started to be included in some mobile carriers’ offerings.

For example, PosteMobile, an Italian MVNO that uses Vodafone’s network, is selling the Puma Phone for €299 ($360).

The sporty handset is offered by PosteMobile with an attractive promotion that allows users to win up to €500 in “telephone traffic.” You can find out more about the promotion here.

The Sagem Puma Phone is a small and unique touchscreen handset that features a 2.8 inch QVGA display, GPS, HSDPA, pedometer, sports applications, 3.2MP camera, and a solar panel on the back. Other European carriers will probably offer the phone soon, although we don’t know which ones yet.

If you don’t like the first Puma Phone, you should know that a Puma Phone 2 is in the making – this will run Android and it should be out in 2011, when Android will probably be the second most popular smartphone platform after Symbian.

    right…this was announced some time ago, this isn't the car market. This is the phone market we're talking about here, honest to God it was bad enough having SE tease us with the XPERIA X10 timescape UI like one year ago only to release it 12 monts later and then find out it's probably going to be the flagship phone for the duration of the year. What gives?
