Philips 598 Music Phone

Known more for its home phones, Philips today released a new cellphone. The 598 clamshell is tailored to music lovers, the Dutch company says. Dedicated buttons on the outer shell control music playback, and MP3 playback is supported for songs either on the 128MB of internal memory or on microSD cards.

Simultaneously, the phone's software caters to stereotypically feminine needs: a shopping list tracker on the 598 helps manage discounts, and tools help calculate a person's body mass index as well as their metabolic rates. Calendaring and a dairy are also pre-installed on the phone, which is equipped with a 1.3-megapixel camera and Bluetooth for its European release in the near future. [via Uberphones]
