We commemorate the Hummer HT1’s fourteenth birthday by remembering its best features, as well as other cell phones launched by car brands.
The brotherhood between cell phone manufacturers and automakers is by no means new. Over the past few decades we have seen the introduction of numerous car-inspired phones. One of them is that Hummer HT1that in this 2021 fulfills his fourteenth birthday.
As the name suggests, this was Hummer’s cell phone. It was also notorious for its rear design, which mimicked the aesthetics of the brand’s almighty cars. The manufacturer was ModeLabs and there were three different models for sale. We invite you travel with us into the past to remember everything that Hummer HT1 offered, an already mythical cell phone.
Hummer HT1, an off-road vehicle
It was in 2007 when Hummer announced the launch of the Hummer HT1, a phone made in Cooperation with ModeLabs. It was available in three colors: yellow, camouflage-style green, and gray. The back of all mimicked that robust off-road aesthetics the American brand, the first model of which was a derivative of the Humvee, a military-grade car.
The terminal had dimensions of 96 x 49 x 15 mm and a weight of 100 grams 2.2 inch touch screenWith 260,000 colors you can slide up to access the physical keyboard. In addition, the design of the central button mimicked the Hummer’s wheels. For this we have to a. Add 2 MP rear camera and an internal memory of 25 MB, expandable via microSD, also with the possibility of playing MP3 songs.
As I said, the Hummer HT1 was launched in Europe in 2007 for a approximate price of 300 euros. It seems it has held up well in the market as it was supported by the Hummer HT2, also produced in collaboration with ModeLabs. It was a compact cell phone with a small screen with a resolution of 176 x 220 pixels, a 2 MP camera and 11 MB of internal memory that could be expanded with a microSD card.
Other car brands with their own cell phone
Hummer was by no means the only car brand with their own cell phones. For example, Aston Martin has its own version of the Nokia 8800. brought on the market, in premium design. It had 64MB of internal storage, no microSD card slot, and an introductory price of about $ 1,400.
Another curious foray by car brands into the world of cell phones was that Land Rover s1 which, like the car, survives even under the most extreme conditions, even through mud. A 2 MP camera also stood out among its specifications, GPS navigation device and even a built-in Opera Mini browser. Its price? Around 450 euros.
Finally, we want to refer to the existence of. recall Vodafone McLaren Mercedes SGH-Z720M, featuring a Samsung phone with a 2.1-inch screen that slides upward 3.15 MP rear camera, VGA front camera, microSD card slot and MP3 player.
