3GSM 2006: Motorola launches budget W220

Mobile phones

Certainly not as feature rich as many of the handsets launched at the 3GSM, the Motorola W220 is a compact clamshell phone pitched squarely at the budget market.

The W220 still manages to fit in a built-in stereo FM radio. browser, picture messaging and downloadable media capabilities, lantern technology, large font capability, and an alarm clock. It also features an external display with colour icons for instant updates on your message, battery and call status. An expanded battery life allows up to 497 minutes of talk time and 293 hours stand-by.

Expect to see the W220 in stores during the third quarter of 2006.
