ModeLabs Hummer HT2 phone
ModeLabs Group recently announced the release of its second Hummer-branded cell phone, the HT2. Unlike the HT1 predecessor, the HT2 is a quad-band phone and features dual SIM card slots and styling meant to mimic the range of the tough trucks built by General Motors it shares its name with. The phone's interface is via a traditional keypad and a 256,000 color TFT display sporting a 176x220-pixel resolution. The HT2 also comes with a 2-megapixel camera and an MP3 player, along with Bluetooth connectivity.
The 11MB of built-in memory is bolstered by a microSD card slot. Stand-by time is rated at 500 hours.
The original Hummer-branded HT1 sold 50,000 units.
The HT2 is available in Russia now, but prices have not been announced. The HT2's quad-band functionality means the phone could be used in North America, though no providers revealed plans to bring it here. [via Slash Phone]
