Watching videos isn’t the very sharpest, and the stretch option to get films to fill the display is welcome, though in some cases it can flatten things out a little too much, despite the screen’s 16:9 aspect ratio. You can also stream video or music using Wi-Fi over a DLNA network and it can handle MPEG4, WMV, H264 and DivX files. The onboard speaker, however, is disappointing, with a rather tinny, strained sound.

The 3.2Mp camera isn’t anything to write home about and not particularly practical to use, given the size of the device. Still, pic quality isn’t bad and it offers LED flash, multi-shot, panorama and smile detection options, as well as adjustments for white balance and ISO.
