Virgin Mobile adds Lobster 544 budget clamshell handset to its range

Mobile phones

If something small, practical and affordable is more important than the latest technology, the Lobster 544 could be the phone for you. It features all the mobile basics for less than £70 on a Pay As You Go Virgin Mobile contract.

The Lobster 544 is a small GPRS clamshell handset with 262k colour screen, an integrated 1.3 megapixel camera, video capture and playback, picture messaging, games and MP3/polyphonic ringtones. It seems quite useful for music too, with a direct access music key, stereo headset and 64MB memory card, which I presume you can boost to a higher capacity if you so wish. You can drag and drop tunes via USB to your phone.

It comes with charger and £5 airtime for a price of £69.99 or free if you want to commit to a contract and should be available to order in the next couple of weeks. Virgin plans to launch a number of other Lobster-branded phones throughout the remainder of 2006.
