Beneath the screen sit the usual three Android menu, home and back buttons while the edge of the keyboard houses a dedicated camera button, volume rocker, on/off/lock switch, MicroUSB port and 3.5mm audio jack.

Talking of cameras, the auto-focus camera is the same 5Mp affair fitted to the Dext, but it now comes coupled with an LED lamp which gives it some low light capability.

Video can be shot at 352 x 288 and 30fps which is bargain basement quality.
