SANS - Survey on application security programs

This is a candybar handset measuring up at 110mm x 45mm x 14mm and 90g. Its 2.2-inch, 240 x 320 pixel screen isn’t up to much. Web browsing is possible but excruciating in the small space, though at least an accelerometer lets you make the most of the screen width.

The camera is activated by a side button. It has a good range of features including macro mode, smile detection and face detection and there is an LED light which doubles up as a torch. You take a photo by clicking the centre of the navpad. It takes a little while for the focus to kick in, so you can’t just click to shoot and then wave the handset around. If you do, your photos will be blurred. I found it a bit tricky to frame outdoor shots, because the screen is not as readable as it could be outside.
