Nokia, the world’s leading producer of handsets, on Wednesday unveiled its new Nokia 5500 sport phones, designed for use by individuals who enjoy walking, running and working out, Reuters reports.

The phones will be available for retail sale in the third quarter of 2006, and they’ll go for around $380 before taxes, according to Reuters.

The phone works in three modes—phone, music and sport—with easy, single-button operation, reports. The sport mode enables users to monitor distances walked or ran, and can even tabulate the number of calories used to travel specific distances, according to Reuters.
