T-Mobile has launched the first non-PDA HSDPA (3G broadband) mobile phone in the UK – the Samsung Z560, offering connection speeds four times faster than traditional 3G. And even better – you can attach it to your PC and use it as a high-speed modem.
Using T-Mobile’s Web ‘n’ Walk service, you get high-speed web access and email on the lightweight (98g) device, along with a 2 megapixel camera, MP3 player with 3D stereo sound, 30MB of internal memory, video streaming, video calling and up to one hour’s video recording.
A basic Web ‘n’ Walk package for the handset is £7.50 per month. However, if you want to hook it up to your laptop, other plans give you that option. Opting for Web ‘n’ Walk Plus gives you the option of high-speed web browsing on your laptop, aling with instant messaging for £12.50 per month. Or if you want to make some free calls, the Web ‘n’ Walk Max package adds VoIP calling for a total of £22.50 per month.
The Samsung Z560 costs from free on a T-Mobile pay monthly price plan and is available now.
