O2 launches Jet handset – the phone with added battery life

Mobile phones

O2 has launched the Jet handset, aimed at businessmen who want a robust phone with increased talktime.

The company claims the handset offers up to 67% more talktime than any comparable on sale device from leading manufacturers – over 540 hours on standby and 9.9 hours of talktime – double the talktime of Nokia 6230i (O2’s most popular model). That’s the big selling point – the specification is fairly basic, with Bluetooth and email access (support for pop3 and IMAP4 email) being the only standout features.

O2 has also added a two-year warranty in case it isn’t quite durable enough for your working day. along with a package of over £50-worth of accessories free of charge, including a charging desk stand and an in-car charger. Prices range on contract (check with your local supplier), but if you want it on Pay and Go, you can pick it up from October 19th for £59.99.
