New-style mobile phone for Australia

A new brand of mobile phones will be released in Australia by Sendo, a UK based company. Sendo hopes to revolutionalise the way customers view the use of a mobile phone. Sendo believes that mobile phones should not be used just for phone calls. It offers phones with features ranging from the basic games, calculator and alarm clock right up to a premium level phone which has remote computer connection, Windows based software, music player and movies.

The first of the Sendo phones – D800 to be launched in Australia has a massive 300 maximum hours standby and up to three hours of talktime. This model phone is currently in testing with service providers which should take about six weeks. Force Technologies, based in Perth, is to distribute the Sendo brand locally.
