Hummer mobile storms into Europe

Hummer HT1 phone arrives for urban tough guys

TODO alt text

Hot on the tyre tracks of the Porsche phone comes the Hummer phone from General Motors . It's a tough looking sliderphone designed for the urban jungle. Or at lest that's what the camouflage casing suggests.

Created by French design house Modelabs , the Hummer HT1 reflects the road-dominating Hummer vehicle's military lineage with its camouflage paintjob. Alternatively, would-be Hummer carriers can choose a more slick brushed metal look or a bright yellow version.

The Hummer HT1 thankfully isn't as heavy duty as its highway-rolling namesake. Though it's look hints at the Hummer's broad-shouldered design. The Hummer HT1 is a sliderphone that has GSM/GPRS capability, a 2-megapixel camera, 256MB of internal memory plus swappable MicroSD card expansion.

The Hummer HT1 is expected to arrive in Europe later this year with a 300 euro (£200) SIM-free price tag.
