Different message types are placed in a single menu. These are SMS, MMS and e-mails. There is nothing unexpected here. Entering text is done by one of the following touch display methods:

  • Block Recognizer
  • Keyboard
  • Letter Recognizer
  • Transcriber

We think that the on-screen keyboard is the fastest and most convenient way to do it, but if you train the other methods, they can also be quite handy! Combined with the T9 system, entering text with the phone is really quick.

Everything is standard in the e-mail menu; there's an option for downloading headers only and you can also set a limit in KB per message. Speed is not that high, because GPRS is used for data, just like the M600…we'd love to see EDGE or UMTS on this phone, and it looks like it can be done, because rivals have already launched HSDPA PPC (HTC TyTN).

Connectivity:

Compared to its processor, one of the improvements of the M600+ is the newer Bluetooth version – it's v2.0 + EDR and supported profiles include: Headset; OPP; GAP; A2DP (Bluetooth Stereo Audio). Compared to previous Bluetooth versions, much higher transfer speeds can now be achieved thanks to EDR (Enhanced Data Rate). Theoretically, power consumption is also reduced. The A2DP profile is useful for stereo audio streaming with a compatible device

The phone features an integrated Wi-Fi module for wireless Internet connection. You can easily connect to a home/office network, or any public place where “hotspot” service is supported. Wi-Fi transfer speeds are much higher than GPRS ones, and using it for Internet and streaming, as well as VoIP services such as Skype, is not a problem.

The mobile version of Internet Explorer is used for internet browsing; loading standard pages in full size is not a problem, because of the relatively high resolution (320x240 pixels) of such devices; to achieve even greater comfort during browsing, we prefer using the display in landscape mode (in M600+ this can easily be done using the M-Desk application). Full-screen usage is almost mandatory when the page has loaded.

There is also One Column View option which eliminates the need for horizontal scrolling but increases the need for vertical scrolling. The page is narrowed and thus it changes its initial look.
