Hummer HT1 Details
GM's offroading brand Hummer is on the verge of releasing a cellphone to complement its trucks, new photos and technical details show. The HT1 was designed by French firm ModeLabs to reflect Hummer's military-like style and comes in colors matching the company's most famous vehicles, including a camouflaged khaki green, sable (dark silver), and bright yellow. Despite its utilitarian looks, however, the slider handset also sports media-friendly luxuries, including a 2-megapixel camera, an FM radio, and a microSD slot for media storage. A 256MB card provides room for a handful of media without needing a replacement.
Although rooted in the American car company, the HT1 will be available first in Europe at a price of 300 Euros ($409). The device runs on GSM networks with GPRS Internet support and should work on at least a basic level in the US, though complete support for American providers isn't yet known. [via Unwired View]
