Wan Lida may not be a household name when it comes to mobile phones, but they are clearly concerned about how well you can rock out on the go. There is a high fidelity speaker on either side of the handset of the new SG 3328, so the music that the MP3 player pumps out will be clearer than most phones on the street. There is a dedicated MP3 key on the keypad and a 5-way navigational key so that you can easily get the music pumping through the speakers.
Don’t get too excited about the potential of this phone, though. Despite the focus on sound, there is only 60MB of memory to store music and there is no card slot of any kind to add more memory. You’ll have to pick a couple of songs you like to hear and listen to them in a loop, I guess. The speakers will be good for hands-free calls, too.
Besides the speaker, there is a 1.3 megapixel camera with an LED flash. The inner screen on the phone is a 1.8 inch TFT LCD. The hinge on the clamshell is designed to open wider than a standard phone, apparently to make it more comfortable to use.
The phone sounds interesting, but still a long way from great. Since it likely won’t make it across the ocean to the U.S. market, I won’t worry about it too much.
