Sagem launches new 3G phone, 600v

Sagem has unveiled its first 3G handset in the UK market, the 600v. Sold exclusively through Vodafone, it's not the most original of phones, but it'll get the job done.

The candybar phone incorporates an MP3 player that supports MP3, AAC, and AAC+ files. It has 16MB of onboard memory that can thankfully be expanded with miniSD cards.

Other features include a 1.3MP camera, Bluetooth connectivity, WAP browsing, and support for Java games. Battery life lasts for about 4 hours of talk time or 400 hours on standby.

Look out for it from 23 October at around £70 through Vodafone.
