Active Lifestyle? | Puma Phone the iPhone's Nightmare

Forget that ugly red mock up screen, it has a striking black and white interface, and this phone is a technological wonder. I personally hate the Puma brand, but this phone makes me want it nonetheless. Let's talk symantecs. The phone has a built-in solar panel. That alone is amazing. The Puma Phone features a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 6x zoom, GPS bike/run/hike trail tracker, a pedometer and even a beautifully designed nautical compass. Forward thinking in mind, it has a front-facing VGA camera which allows for video calls. It also includes a mp3 player, an FM radio and a stopwatch.

It switches between sport and lifestyle screens, each offering a specific set of apps and features to suit the particular mood the user is in. With the insurgence of "green" technology, Puma placed the solar panel on the back, but not in a way that compromises the design and functionality, just to add "bells and whistles". Major plus, as far as I'm concerned. One hour of sunlight will get you 2 hours of music play back. There is a nice app that displays the hours or music or talk time powered by the sun. The Puma Phone will launch in exactly 44 days on European networks. So us glutonous American's will have to continue doing what we do best, consuming shit.
