Apple Buys Chipmaker, Intrinsity (and all their voodoo)

You’re an outdoorsy type, aren’t you? You only read mobile-phone blogs on your down-time between hiking and BASE jumping. I can tell.

Being that you are that wonderful blend of outdoorsman (or outdoorswoman) and phone aficionado, I bet you’re often peeved about the whole lack of power outlets in the wild (I know I am). Well, well, looky here, someone out there has heard your cries.

Sagem are soon to release their solar-powered, puma-branded feature-phone to the masses. How do we know that? Well, it’s just gone and had it’s first photo shoot with the FCC, that’s how.

It’s not all candy and rainbows (or mountains and douglas firs, if you’d prefer), though, as it seems that the supported bands are GSM 850, 900, 1800 and 1900, as well as WCDMA I and VIII… which means no 3G in the US. Sorry, peeps.

It is, however, slated for release in Europe in April, so at least you know you can make phone calls while traversing the Swiss Alps, Bond style. International markets will follow “later”.
