The good

  • Well-designed - Light weight, small dimensions - Easy to access phone book - Low Price - AOL instant messenger capability - Very cool bright blue LCD backlight, the rest of the buttons backlit as well - Keytone composer - Very good sound quality ยป The bad
  • Awful battery life - No voice activated dialing - The caller display is too small and sometimes not displaying the caller information. For example when on the phone with someone and the second line rings. You will not be able to see who is calling. The caller ID option doesn't erase the digits you have typed while dialing the first number. - Sim card takes a little while to retrieve phone numbers

Availability and Prices
The phone is currently available through VoiceStream (T-Mobile) for $89.99. You can also can get a much better deal through Amazon.com and even make $100 with one year service agreement.

The phone is a nice size and weight without being too small with excellent sound quality and easy to access menus. Great phone on a great price.

This is our preview based on a preproduction unit, expect the review soon.
