O2 Cocoon review: Music can be cool

Music can be cool

GSMArena team, 19 May 2008.

O2 Cocoon is a captivating music-centered device manufactured exclusively for the O2 carrier. Although it's a last year edition, it sports all the sweet features you would expect in a contemporary handset - 3G and HSDPA support, large QVGA TFT display, a 2 megapixel snapper and 2GB of internal memory - not to mention the turn-head design.

With prices ranging between 0 and 199 GBP with different O2 plans, the O2 Cocoon can meet a variety of user needs.

The O2 Cocoon is impressive enough to grab attention. Add the audacious white exterior and you get yourself a handset that stands out in the crowd.

The shell-like Cocoon certainly sounds and looks sweet, but we are yet to see about that as this review rolls. We've even spiced it up with some live action videos. So waste no more time and hit the jump to continue.
