The Puma phone was announced a while back, and we really caught a good glimpse of it around Mobile World Congress, but now it has been unboxed and it has made us a little curious. From the looks of things, it seems like Sagem, who makes the Puma phone, is really going for a strong red theme here. Cables, headsets and everything else are a very bright red and the phone itself has red accents.
Here’s what Electric Pig has to say about the unboxing:
- Um. The Puma Phone comes in a biodegradable toolbox.
- The outer label advises you not to use the Puma Phone in a “naked mixed sauna or during open heart surgery.” Fair enough!
- The label also claims that the Puma Phone contains a “live puma that should bot [sic] be touched, teased, or even looked at, by children under 10 years of age”
- When the Puma Phone boots up, it advises you that it is “Gathering Friends” and “Configuring Lifestyle”
- Instead of a signal bar, the Puma Phone tells you the reception status in one succinct word: we’re guessing “Happy” is the equivalent of full bars.
- The Puma Phone roars at you when you get a text message.
- The Puma Phone says “I’m gonna go online” when you’re about to use data and could be charged.
- The calculator on the Puma Phone insults you if the sum you type in is too easy. 3+3 triggers “Too easy” or “I’m sure it’s” and various other jibes.
A roar when you get a text message? Sarcastic notes and messages on the packaging and the phone itself? Either Sagem or Puma seems really confused, or perhaps it’s just all part of the kitsch. Either way, if you’ve been gunning for one of these things, it’s out now for your enjoyment.
