Philips makes cell phones? Sure the manufacturer is all but forgotten here in the US where handsets are concerned, but that apparently won’t stop it from churning out Sony Ericsson-like handsets such as the K700 for other markets. Truth be told, at the right carrier-subsidized price the K700 would likely fair pretty well here in the States. Purported specs:

  • 2.8-inch touchscreen TFT-LCD, 262,000 colors, 400 x 240 pixels
  • GSM/GPRS/EDGE 900/1800/1900 MHz
  • Supported file formats RMBV, AVI, FLV, Divx, MP3, WMA, AC, FLAC, APE
  • Dedicated GPU / stereo
  • 3.2 megapixel camera with auto-focus and video recording
  • Up to 4 hours of video playback / Up to 25 hours of music playback in CD-quality
  • 48 MB of internal memory, support for MicroSD memory cards up to 8GB
  • Bluetooth 2.0 / USB 2.0 / FM-radio with RDS / jack 3.5 mm
  • Battery: 1000mA / h lithium-ion
  • Dimensions: 101 x 52 x 13 mm
  • Weight: 97 g
  • Standby time – up to 1 month, talk time – up to 8.5 hours

Not too shabby, really. No word yet on a release date, pricing or target markets but we have a feeling you’ll be hard-pressed to locate one of these puppies on North American soil any time soon. Hit the jump for another pair of renders.

Thanks, Vlad!
