During CeBIT in Hannover, French Sagem officially announced its first candybar styled Microsoft Smartphone 2003, which was already rumored for some weeks now.
Overall, it's nothing special and while it misses Bluetooth, it includes a camera (which seems to become a standard now):
- High quality accessible design
- Triple Band, GPRS
- Microsoft Smartphone 2003 OS
- Intel X-Scale 200 MHz CPU 32MB ROM/32MB SDRAM
- Camera (CMOS VGA) with Video support (MPEG4)
- Color screen (176x220, 65k TFT)
- Java MIDP 2.0 support
- MMS, WAP 2.0, MP3 and WMA ringtones
- Data/Fax modem, USB connection, SD Slot
- No Bluetooth
Overall, it seems to be a great mass market device - if Sagem sets the correct price point for it. A price or release date wasn't announced.
