  • Excerpt: This phone is not even functional. Call quality is like a tin can, the touch pad in front is horrible, it mutes or turns on Bluetooth all the time. This phone is fail all over. The Microsoft kin is a better phone.

Cool Little Phone

10 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Actually I disagree with the above reviews...I find this to be a simple straight forward phone with a stunning MP3 player...the sound through my Shure S-310 pro earbuds is very, very good! Especially when tweaked...the B&O chip is better sounding than my iPhone 3GS!

21 October 2009
  • Excerpt: PROS: Decent sound. Cool looking handset with gee-whiz sliding design. CONS: Miserable touch screen design; it essentially is TOO sensitive. Cheap feeling; the sliding mechanism doesn't feel solid at all, neither does the bottom half of the phone.
