Sagem has announced the launch of the my220x – a sleek and compact handset "with a golden touch".

The my220x offers a "subtle" gold trim and gold disc menu button, and is described as suitable for any small pocket or ladies handbag.

Weighing in at 65 grams and at 10mm thick it certainly is wee. It offers a 65k colour LCD screen, hands-free capability with speaker phone, SMS with T9, dual-band and vibration alert.

The my220x also delivers 180 minutes talk-time with 240 hours standby time.

Available on Virgin pay-as-you-go this handset is available now from Argos, at £12.49 and Woolworths at £14.99.
