F850 - First of the Telstra NextG handsets

The F850 is the first of the NextG handsets released for Telstra's new NextG 3G network in Australia. It is a Flip style handset and offers all the standard features of modern 3G handsets.

Georgia loves this handset for it's long battery life and stylish appearance. There is no better handset for the Telstra NextG network then the F850 and not due to it being the only handset available for the new NextG network. It is just one of the family of devices that we are releasing for the new Telstra NextG network and as the first it is special.

Nation wide coverage, perfect RF tuning and sized to fit in your pocket, hand and wrap around your head while in use... You just need an elastic band and you would have the ultimate 80's handsfree kit. Just joking, it comes with a great wired handsefree kit in the box.
