While many companies have quickly aligned themselves with the World Cup for sports related promotional activities this year, those of us not quite so enthralled by football might be pleased to learn that Sagem is using tennis to promote its latest handset. Named after the famous French Open, the My700x Roland-Garros handset has a very sharp design and boasts the more unique RG logo of the event.
The quad band handset has dimensions of 106 x 46 x 15mm, a 1.3 megapixel camera and boasts an FM radio, MP3 playback and EDGE technology for downloading more tunes. With it you get a tennis games (of course) and a sample of the of the Roland-Garros clay court – ideal for recreating the tournament in minature perhaps.
Needless to say, it’s going to have a bit of a niche market here in the
UK and so is going to be sold mainly in La Griffe Roland-Garros in
France but it certainly is one smart handset – lets hope for a
Wimbledon version later in the summer.
