More and more people are buying higher end smartphones such as the iPhone 4 and the Samsung Galaxy S II these days, but if you are looking to buy a starter handset for your children perhaps, then a cheap touch-screen feature phone is probably the best option.
This is where Motorola can possibly help, as they have just announced a new touch-screen feature phone called the Wilder. According to Dan Seifert over at mobileburn.com, the Wilder comes with a splash and dust resistant design and extensive social networking integration.
The Wilder features a 2.8-inch QVGA resistive touch-screen display with a resolution of 240 x 320, a single-line secondary display that shows you the time, signal strength, battery life and incoming notifications and a 2-megapixel camera with video capture capabilities.
It also comes with an FM radio and MP3 player built-in and a 910mAh battery that provides around 9.6 hours of talk time and 10.6 days of standby time. The built-in storage on the Motorola Wilder may only be a paltry 5MB, but it does include a microSD card slot that supports cards up to 32GB.
The Motorola Wilder handset features integration with MySpace, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter, and comes pre-loaded with a number of apps including Need for Speed, Game of Life, Tetris and SoundHound. The Wilder will be available from Carphone Warehouse sometime in July, for £49.95.
