Crafted from featherweight materials including magnesium and fibreglass-infused plastic, the phone has metallic looks and enhanced durability in a lightweight shell, and is just 11.9mm slim.

Its slider design features a 2.12″ 262k colour TFT screen with 240×320 pixel resolution, has a 2 megapixel camera with 4x digital zoom and built-in flash, and the ability to record up to 1 hour of video.

The extra large screen offers enough space to view 12 lines of text together and is fully capable of displaying text/photo/video caller ID, plus any multimedia stored on the phone.

There’s a multi-format music player with microSD expandable memory, plus a PIM, vCard, and vCalendar, document viewer, and TV output. Connections wise, there’s Bluetooth and USB.

It will be available this month from Vodafone, Orange, and the Carphone Warehouse. Pricing will vary depending upon contract.
