PUMA launches Solar-Powered Smartphone!

It is said that PUMA starts in Sport and ends in Fashion. The PUMA PHONE certainly reflects that!

PUMA, of all the companies, has jumped on to the smartphone bandwagon. PUMA AG and Sagem Wireless have taken the wraps of their PUMA PHONE at the recently held Mobile World Congress.

Weighing 115g, the phone features a solar panel on its back, reminding me of the Samsung’s Blue Earth. It’s got a 2.8 inch, 240 x 320 QVGA touchscreen; 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash and x6 zoom; a VGA video call camera; GPS; a pedometer for the fitness conscious; GPS tracker and stopwatch; and FM radio among other things.

The phone will be available in Europe and on PUMA website from April this year.

Here’s the teaser website for the PUMA PHONE -

For the full specifications, you can download the spec sheet available for free at the above mentioned teaser website or refer to the press release here -

Of course, one can always Google for the hands-on reviews of the phone for more information. It is said to cost around 25000 Indian Rupees (400 Euros).
