No-frills Jet phone's 10-hour talk time

Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a mobile phone with talktime as the headline feature. Just in case five or six hours of constant chattering between charges isn’t enough O2 has come up with the Jet. It claims a whopping 9.9 hours of chin wagging power, or more than 22 days on standby. We’re reckoning that should be enough for even the most serious of yappers.BasicThe ‘jet’ black colour is designed to suit the business type who wants few frills other than the essentials. That means no camera or music player but Bluetooth, email and car kit compatibility go in. Neither will you catch a raft of bundled games and ringtones, O2 preferring to offer a two year warranty (remember them) instead. Construction workers wanting to test that warranty will be pleased to learn that a special protective case has been designed to make it extra durable. Sounds like a challenge.A quick scan of other handsets in its price range reveals its battery really is a standout performer, with more than double the power of a Moto SLVR, and triple that of Nokia’s 6030. But if 594 minutes talktime just isn’t enough you could always splash out on the everlasting Sony Ericsson W710i which claims to talk on for a whole six minutes more. In your face, The Duracell Bunny!
