Fly Mobile SL600

 Fly Mobile SL600 Available now
10th August 2007

The Fly Mobile SL600 is a lightweight slider phone aimed very much at the value-for-money end of the market. Following on from the Fly Mobile SL500i, this new handset from Fly Mobile is available now in the UK for less than 60 from Woolworths, and it's also available in other regions for a similar sort of price.

At first glance you'd be forgiven for thinking that the Fly Mobile SL600 was a Samsung slider - it wouldn't look out of place in their range and it does have some similar design elements, but crucially this is a distinctive design in its own right.

At 81 grams, the SL600 is quite light, but it's still pretty well specified. The SL600 has  176x220 pixel TFT display in 262,000 colours, a two megapixel camera with flash and multishot capabilities, microSD expandable memory, multimedia playback capabilities including MP3, MP4, AAC, 3GP and WAV formats, an FM radio, Bluetooth and Java. Fly Mobile don't seem to have cut any significant corners with the design of the SL600.

All phones are the result of some sort of design compromise, and the SL600 is no exception. The SL600 only has 2.5 hours of talktime and 6 days standby time. Also, the 176x220 pixel display doesn't compare too well against many rivals with 240x320 pixel displays. But on the plus side, these slightly restricted features keep the price and weight down.

This is quite a smart looking phone, available in Black (as shown) plus a two-tone Black and Pink and a colour combination called Titan which has silvery-grey highlights. Certainly in terms of features for the money, the SL600 looks to be an attractive handset.
