Motorola this week launched the Motorola C139, a new handset for Cingular's GoPhone prepaid service. A simple candy bar handset with rounded ends, the C139 offers a tiny color display, text messaging, monophonic ring tones, and basic organizer functions. For such a small handset, however, the C139 promises a lengthy talk-time battery life of up to 11 hours. The phone is just $39.99, and it comes with a $10 GoPhone airtime card.
Cingular also introduced the Sony Ericsson Z300a and the diminutive recently. Like the C139, the handsets aren't available for Cingular's standard service plans.
