Sagem phone leaps from cell towers to Wi-Fi

Sagem my419x

French cellphone designer Sagem today became one of the few companies after Motorola to introduce an intelligent Wi-Fi phone, based on an announcement made today. The my419x includes Unlicensed Mobile Access technology that will let it automatically switch from calls on GSM cellphone networks to Wi-Fi hotspots when it comes in range, saving valuable call minutes and improving reception indoors. This won't be saddled to an expensive phone, however, as the phone keeps its extra features limited to a video-capable VGA camera and Bluetooth.

The my419x should soon be ready for use first through the European cell provider Orange. Other areas and carriers haven't been discussed. [via Mobil.cz]
