Details on the New Puma Phone

Solar-Charged Puma Phone Races Onto Shelves This Year

Although the Puma phone will hit European markets first, I'm totally excited to get my hands on this baby, and it seems like it may be worth the wait. The Puma Phone is custom designed from the inside out by the athletic company, but let's start with the obvious: it can be charged via an outlet or by the sun with its built-in solar panel. Hot! Additionally, Puma has created its very own operating system — a carousel-based menu gives you easy access to messaging, music, videos, photos, radio, and GPS, plus you can buy Puma products and get access to Puma World right from your mobile while on the go. Talk about impulse shopping!

The Puma phone sports a 2.8-inch touchscreen, and comes stocked with a 3.2MP camera with an LED flash. Some of the cooler features for you active and mobile geeks include video calling, an integrated pedometer and stopwatch, a run tracker, and geotagging, so if you're out on a hike and find a hidden waterfall, you can snap a pic and know where to head next time you want to take a peek. The Puma Phone will hit Europe in April and will then roll out to international markets shortly thereafter. No prices have announced yet, so check back for more release details!
