Nokia 5500 Sport Music with pedometer

Nokia 5500 Sport Music

Frequent exercisers now have the option of using dedicated music players such as the Nike+iPod Kit or Sony's S2 Sports Walkman. For some, even these hybrid devices may be an unnecessary addition to their collections. The Nokia 5500 Sport Music is designed to appeal to technology minimalists by merging their cellphone, exercise tracking, and music into a single handheld. A variant of the existing 5500 model, the Sport Music has a built-in pedometer that monitors calories and distance to sync them later with a PC. Users also receive an armband, a bicycle holder, and a sport-oriented headset for calls or music during a run. A GPS module is an option for long-distance exercise.

Beyond its new focus, Nokia's new phone ships with a 512MB microSD card to store music, a 2-megapixel camera for photos and videos, and supports text-to-speech for reading SMS messages aloud. It's already shipping to European customers for 350 Euros before service plans or taxes; a North American launch has not been mentioned.
