As a non-mobile sort of person I have been reluctunt to get a flash new mobile. Fieldtrips and foreign travel have resulted in me biting the bullet and buying a phine so why not go for a trendy one. The adverts tell us to after all. Have bought the new samsung dual band phone T100.
The phone supports GSM 1800 and GSM 900 networks and also has WAP wireless technology.
The LCD display size is a very comfortable 128 x 160 picxels (its crystal clear) and yes of course this is full colour. The screen actually looks like a P.C screen and is probably the biggest leap in mobile technology. The phone comes in clamshell form factor with 2 LCDs so that you can see who is calling on the top screen before you answer.
The phone comes with a very light travel and desktop charger (very light) hands free kit which is like a walkman headphone, hand strap, hard case, extended battery and USB cable and download kit.
The phone comes with a number of different functions. The voice dialling facility is poor, the phone finds it hard to identify even a slight variation in voice pitch, voice command, 30 second voice memo which is excellent. The messaging service is excellent with a great predictive text function. The dictionary seems pretty good. There is a ring tone composer although no websites have been set up to help you with these and the ring tone is polyphonic (this gives it excellent sound like an arcade machine) There is a vibrate option for intimate moments as well as three very poor games that look great but are really boring.
The phone attracts attention and screams buy me. It works pretty well too. Go and try one out at a local Jag shop then buy one on contract from Dial-a-phone comes free with a vodaphone contract.
