3 Skypephone S2 hits shops on 18th August

The brand new 3 Skypephone S2 is looking shit hot. 3 have taken a heck of a lot of feedback from their users and upgraded the device big time.

Obviously it’s got the usual Skype goodness included as standard. But they’ve sooped it up. It is, of course, HSDPA. But plug it in to your laptop with a standard USB cable and it’ll be detected as a ‘dongle’. Kill two birds with one stone. I think I’ll get one for just that.

It’s sporting a 3.2 megapixel camera. Like that. And they’ve gone to town with the on-board applications. Sarah from 3 demonstrated the rather nifty Facebook mini-application that, once you’ve logged in, maintains a connection to the social networking site and acts as a launch point into Facebook Mobile. So you never need to arse about logging in again. The other 3 goodness is there in the form of a wealth of services. We’ll do a full look at it shortly.

The S2, as it’s being called will retail for 69 quid. Done. I’ll have one of those.

What'd you reckon about the keys, Ewan? I hated the look of them and, worse still, I thought they felt horrible too! Shame as I loved the look and feel of the original Skypephone. The keys on that are great.
