VibeTech™ | Puma Phone Review

So Mzansi haven't heard much about the Puma Phone it seems… But I can tell you that the Puma Phone is on another level!

Despite it being released by Sagem, which we know their mobile handsets aren't much reliable, the Puma Phone still has awesome up to date features. One of them which really stood out was the Solar Panel, which means the Phone gets charged up by the sun! Simply point it to the sun and wooala! Your calls, music and messages powered by the sun.

Another breakaway from the so popular App worlds out there is the Puma World. This is the 'hub' for all your Puma accessories here you can find direct access to Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr and many more under Puma World. Puma is also known for performance and the Sports Tracker comes handy as you can take it with you on your morning jogs or quick treadmill sessions.

The Puma Phone is available on contract at Vodacom outlets nationwide. If a 3.2 megapixel camera, FM radio and LED flash turns you on make sure you go buy it!

Key features of the PUMA Phone include:

* Integrated solar cell, with charge indicator (one hour of sunshine provides power for one hour and 30 minutes of MP3 play or enough energy to send about 30 text messages)
