I’m not going to lie to you. This phone isn’t a world beater. But the T715 looks like a decent, compact and rather elegant mid-range phone.
It’s got a slide out number pad and so the thickness of 14.9mm is quite impressive. The phone only measures 91.5mm x 48mm and weighs in at 96.5g so it will fit quite comfortably in even the most skinny of jeans.
The screen is 2.2-inches with a 240×320 QVGA display that, apparently, will respond well in direct sunlight. It’s got 3G connectivity as well as Bluetooth. There’s also a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash.
Web connectivity via the 3G connection should allow for video streaming and Java and it also comes with Google Maps and AccuWeather. Music playback of MP3 or AAC shouldn’t be a problem but there’s only 90MB of built in storage. This is expandable by microSD – M2 memory cards seem to have their days numbered now then.
No word on availability, networks or price yet though. To me, this looks like a prime candidate as a free offering on cheaper plans (£20ish ones) or as an affordable handset for PAYG.
