Security for virtualized datacentres

E-mails are easy to set up, with most requiring only address and password, plus there's support for Push Gmail and Push Exchange, so you're always up to date. The on-screen Qwerty keyboard proved fine for messaging and the suggested words, as you type, are generally relevant and useful for speed. You can pull in your Facebook contacts and pics to your phone book and call quality was generally fine.

Panoramic mode leaves room for improvement

So far so good, but then we get to that enticing 8Mp camera. It comes with a proper xenon (as opposed to LED) flash, the first Android phone to have one. The camera offers an extremely wide panorama mode that automatically stitches together six shots but not very well, alas. Other features include a six-pic multi-shot function and macro setting, face detection and image stabilisation, as well as a claimed 10x digital zoom.
