From what I've been told, this phone is merely a Nokia 3100 with more asthetic value. The keypad is highly stylized and the cover has a metallic shine to it. A classy look in short. The price is affordable, around $110. However there are many downsides to this model. The obvious is when the supposedly 'original' cover begins to lose its metallic shine with holes in the paint appearing with use. Next is the internet browsing. The phone crashes when an attempt to scroll the page is made when the page is loading. Due to the low memory, large pages cannot be viewed.Most Java games and applications fail to work properly and the 'Unable To Run Application' message is displayed constantly even though it works perfectly on other phones. After a while, pressing the left softkey (GoTo shortcut) results in the phone restarting itself. Phone crashes when new bookmarks are attempted to beadded. Battery life is relatively low. As with the 3100, no internal radio or camera and not many audio formats can be supported. The only good thing about this phone is it is extremely durable. The phone functions normally after many drops and exposure to moisture. Overall, this phone has a major manufacturing defect and needs to be removed from the market. The low price does not compensate for the trouble that this phone gives.
