There’s a huge announcement from the UK phone network 3 tomorrow, but as a taster for what might becoming, today it gave details of a quartet of new handsets it is to offer to its subscribers – and there are some goodies.
Undoubtedly top of the 3’s customers’ shopping list this Christmas will be the 3G version of Motorola’s iconic, and some might say Chav-tastic, RAZR phone. The RAZR3x is a sizeable leap from the original models, for in addition to offering video calling and video download via 3G it also packs a two mega pixel camera (the original was a paltry VGA one).
3 has also snapped up Nokia’s 3G biggie the Nokia 6280 as well as the company’s just launched high-end series phone the N70. Completing the range is the latest handset from LG the U880. Its USP is that it is apparently the thinnest 3G clamshell to reach the UK so far. It has a 1.3 mega pixel camera, Bluetooth, an expandable internal memory of 80 MB and, this is an important one for LG, an internal aerial.
All four models will be in the stores between now and Xmas.
