It’s a candy bar style phone that weighs in at 2.61 ounces and has dimensions of 4.22” x 1.73” x .54”, so it’s a small phone overall really. It’s got a small display at 128×160 and comes loaded with Mobile Web, Games, Apps. It does have a speakerphone and bluetooth, really it’s a rather plain phone it seems… but it’s only $99 which isn’t too bad for a new phone these days..
