Sagem launches the 3G-friendly my850v handset

Mobile phones

I always associate Sagem with fairly reasonable entry-level handsets, but it seems to have upped the ante a bit with the my850v handset.

This is only the second-ever contract phone from the company, with availability with Vodafone from July 2007. For your tie in, you get a clamshell (or flip top if you like) handset in a shiny blue finish, with 3G and EDGE compatibility. The mirrored front displays the name of the person calling, the piece of music being played, a message received indication and the time as soon as an event occurs.

It also packs in a two megapixel camera, music and video player, video recording via a VGA camera, web browsing, Bluetooth 2.0 and games. 16MB of memory on board, but you can boost via microSD card.

The my850v is available for free with Vodafone on contract.
