Product Description
A small, clamshell-style phone. It has a 1.5 by 1.25 inch color display screen when closed, and a 1 inch by one-half inch monochrome screen on the outside. It has flat control buttons with the dialing keys arranged in the familiar 3 by 4 grid. Above those are the other keys that have become familiar on cell phones, including soft keys on the top left and right corners, the Send and End keys, a group of 5-way navigation buttons, and the Menu, Cancel and End keys. The left side panel features a rocker switch for controlling volume on the top, and a button used for the walkie-talkie feature on the bottom. It also has two buttons on the top outside panel for accessing the walkie-talkie feature and for hearing phone status information when it is flipped closed.
