The Citrus features a touchpad on the back called Backtrack that can be used for navigation if the user wishes instead of the normal touch screen.
Pros: Simple and easy to use, Touch pad on the back is interesting, Very small
Cons: Poor camera, Browsing experience is not the best, Low resolution and the screen is small
