2mp, video, 4x digital zoom
Tri-band GSM, EDGE, Bluetooth, USB
10MB plus 512MB MicroSD
Talk time 3 hours
LOOK AND FEEL:
A solid slab with a neat twist – the bottom bit swivels, through 900 for the camera and 1800 to present the music controls. Finish feels a bit rough, glossy parts show fingerprints.
Lots of different materials on show in various shinynesses of metal and plastic. Uncluttered around the edges.
Number pad on twisting section looks crowded but works well enough; elongated D pad on main section is perfectly useable.
Very good high-resolution screen with rich colours. Contrast is good.
Loads. 10Mb internal plus 512MB microSD card – awkwardly located, so don’t try removing it; but at least there’s a card in the box.
2 megapixel, 4x zoom with still, burst, and video modes. Music keys double as camera controls, eg for zoom. Results are average.
Good interface – intuitive and generally functional. Also synchronises nicely with Windows Media Player on a PC via USB.
Poor earbud headphones, disappointing audio quality even with replacement
headset. No equaliser functions.
Inserting MicroSD card is tricky, but everything else works well. Good call performance too.
Data cable and sync software in the box, Push To Talk, FM radio (didn’t work for us though), latest Symbian S60 functions, EDGE.
• Twist-for-function feature.
• Enough memory to store music, reasonable playing interface.
• Useful collection of extras (especially EDGE – when it’s available).
WE DON’T LIKE:
• Disappointing music player functions, poor earbud headset.
• Overall standard of finish.
• Poor battery life.
An ok mainstream phone, but a mediocre music phone. With this level of capability, the twisting looks like a gimmick.
