Linux phone joins W-Sim lineup

This week, Japanese operator Willcom has announced 2 new handsets based on its W-Sim (Willcom Sim) technology which allows users to pull out and plug in a core mobile module into different devices depending on their needs.

The first handset announced is a Linux-based handset named ‘Sandgate WP’.The handset comes with 192mb of memory, an Intel PXA270 416MHz processor and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

The second handset is the iPod-esque ‘nico’ – a handset with no internet browser or camera. The phone has e-mail functionality, however and is designed to appeal to parents of younger consumers who might not want their children accessing the internet from their mobile.

The two new handsets join the W-Zero3, Papipo and TT to increase the W-Sim lineup to 5 models.
