I don’t know why this took so long, but there you have it. See, cellphones usually come with a dilemma. You can’t make’em too big, right? So, how much space do you dedicate to your keypad, and how much space to your screen in that limited area? The keypad is too small and people can’t dial. The screen is too small and you’re back in 2001. Yeah, you got your sliders and your clamshells, but some argue those aren’t very elegant designs.
Enter the Newgen T3. It’s part PDA, part cellphone. Most importantly, you dial by touching the screen. Comes with a stylus and everything. There are some buttons at the bottom, for regular applications. It’s not the most exciting phone though:
It comes with a 2.2-inch TFT LCD with 262k colors. The phone also has built-in stereo speakers for a hopefully better listening experience using the built in MP3 player. The downside is this device has only 64MB of built-in memory and it lacks support for Bluetooth or Infrared. USB transfer is the only option.
And, it looks like it’s China only. But hell, it’s a step in the right direction.
