Virgin Mobile Lobster 575

 Lobster 575 Open Discontinued
6th July 2006

The Lobster 575 is Virgin Mobile's second "Lobster" branded handset, with a third one due out in the next couple of week. Like the previous Lobster 485 model, the Lobster 575 is manufactured for Virgin by Bellwave of Korea. In this case, the Lobster 575 is based on the Belwave Neo 200 handset.

It's somewhat larger than the previous 485 model (which was one of the most compact phones on the UK market), but the Lobster 575 is still very lightweight at 77 grams and with an 83x42mm footprint. It's also an attractively designed handset that's sufficiently different from others to be interesting (the older Lobster 485 was even more impressive though).

Primarily designed to be a good value for money handset, the Lobster 575's feature set is a bit of a mixed bunch. There's a useful 1.3 megapixel camera, an MP3 player and web browser, but on the other hand the screen is only 128x160 pixels, the memory isn't expandable and there's no email client and most importantly, no Bluetooth.

 Virgin Mobile Lobster 575This is one of the cheaper phones in the Virgin Mobile range though, so the Lobster 575 does offer pretty good value for money at around 80 including some bundled airtime, and the Lobster 575 can be bought in either black or a shocking pink colour. Presently, the Lobster 575 is only available from Virgin Mobile in the UK and not other territories at present.

It's not the most advanced handset in the Bellwave range - they have a pretty wide variety of clamshells and sliders including the Bellwave Anasta with a 3 megapixel camera. We're not sure what Virgin Mobile are planning for their next Lobster phone, but there's plenty of interesting handsets in the Bellwave range to choose from.
