The slimline (13.8mm) design does look more like a camera than a phone and incorporates a number of features usually found only in the stand-alone camera realm such as face detection, shake-reduction and geo-tagging. The unit’s 3.2 inch, 240×400 touch screen also enhances its photo browsing capability and with auto-focus, dual power LED Flash, a music player, FM Radio,Bluetooth connectivity and video recording at 30 fps (720 x 480) including slow motion playback, it looks to be another useful example of convergence in the mobile handset market.
