Sliding in with WCDMA and HSDPA is the Softbank 709SC

The design may be best described as Samsung-esque, but the high-speed functionality of the 709SC from Softbank Mobile is what’ll keep you coming back for more. The fashionable slider cell phone not does the usual tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900) dance we’re all too familiar with, it has also learned how to do the W-CDMA tango, as well as the HSDPA cha-cha-cha (if the Babelfish translation is to be trusted). This phone is a high-speed dancing machine with 3G oozing out its pores.

There’s a pair of cameras on board: a 2 megapixel primary unit and a VGA CMOS for video calls. As far as the other features are concerned, you’ll find a 2.1-inch QVGA TFT display with 260k colors, 130MB of internal memory, microSD expansion (up to 1GB), integrated music player, Bluetooth with A2DP, and even an on-board translator for when you’re trying to figure out how to say sushi in Japanese.

The 709SC, while sleek and hip, can handle the business end of things too with its Office viewer, browser, and email functions. It’s like it’s a Mac and a PC. No word on price, but it’ll ship in four different flavors: purple, silver, white, and “lead-lead” red.
