Motorola has unveiled a cost-effective handset that is both splash- and dust-resistant while remaining ostensibly a social networking device. The Motorola WILDER will become available next month for the rather appealing price tag of £49.95 from Carphone and features a robust 2.8-inch display that will help wade of the elements. The WILDER will also integrate your social networking accounts including those from Facebook, MySpace and Twitter, meaning you'll receive updates and notifications instantly. With the embedded YouTube app, users will also be able to upload any video footage they shoot with the two-megapixel camera straight to YouTube.
With its affordable price tag, social networking credentials and tough-phone status, we reckon the Motorola WILDER could be a winner with the early teen market, especially as this demographic often finds itself getting in more scrapes than most.
