This was the phone that started the evolution of mobiles to where we are today.
I first had one of these about 6 years ago, although I still have it now. This was the first phone-in the UK at least-to have a fully functional colour screen. At the time, peole were paying silly money to get their hands on one of these.
By today's standards the technology and features of the T68 ate limited & there are few of the features which we now consider standard, such as a camera-although Sony did change that quite quickly.
The most obvious point about the T68 is it's size-it is very small but as with the Nokia 8210 the keypad was designed so the buttons were spaced out so you could still use it quite easily.
The screen is a nice size & at the time was the best quality you could get. All of the menu options are accesses using the single joypadvin the middle of the phone below the screen. This makes it very easy to get used to & navigate through.
A problem which I did have regularly was that the phone would often freeze up & I would have to pull the battery out to reset it. Despite this, the t68 was probably the first phone to challenge Nokia's dominance of the Market.
Overall, technology has moved on, but this is still a good, fun handset which in a few years may even be an antique!
