Puma Launches Solar-Powered Puma Phone


Puma is better known as a sportswear maker, but this time it’s teamed up with Sagem to produce a solar-powered smartphone known only as the Puma Phone.

This is pretty unexpected news, considering there haven’t been any announcements leading up to this moment. At first glance, the Puma Phone has a pretty interesting design, with a large touchscreen and a solar panel on the backside, that allows you to recharge the device when you don’t have where to plug it in.

Conceived by Sagem, the surprising handheld features a 2.8 inch QVGA TFT capacitive panel, a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash and 6x digital zoom, GPS and A-GPS, a secondary VGA front camera and a compass.

The above features don’t look half bad, do they? The problem is Puma’s smartphone features a signature Puma OS, instead of the popular platforms of today, and that could be a problem for people who use a large number of applications to handle their tasks. Puma and Sagem definitely have their work cut out for them as far as the OS is concerned.

The Puma Phone comes with a small 880mAh battery that’s not gonna hold you for very long, so you will have to put that solar panel to good use. Judging from the T-Mobile logo in the above photo, Puma has already found a carrier for its smartphone. Now we wait.
