Panasonic has teamed up with Sega to bring the friendly hedgehog to the mobile. Sonic will be pre-installed on six new Panasonic phones including the company's flagship phone of the year, the VS3 as well as the VS7, SA6, SA7, MX6 and MX7.

Sonic the Hedgehog was first introduced on the Sega MegaDrive in 1991 and since then 38 million copies have been sold worldwide, making it Sega's top selling game of all time. Users will now be able to help Sonic face his arch-enemy Dr. Eggman through their mobile.

The mobile version of Sonic also comes with the new 'ranking' and 'difficulty settings' functions and all stages (apart from the special stages) found on the Sega MegaDrive.

The Panasonic VS3 will feature a 1.3 megapixel camera, 2.2in QVGA display with 16 million colors & 300-candela brightness, X-Changeable Cover(tm) with matching content and Tri-band support however there is no mention of Bluetooth in the specs we have been sent.
