We would like to introduce the smallest, yet most perfectly formed latest addition to the WAP mobile phone world. Step forward the pint-sized Samsung SGH-N100. Not only is it a very small and posy gadget but it’s also brimming with features.
It’ll do all the normal things you’ve come to expect from a mobile phone like, err, being able to make calls and it also has a calendar, to-do list and scheduler, voice control and predictive T9 text input (to help put words into your mouth while messaging …).
But the really clever bit is WAP (wireless application protocol) enabling you to use the phone to access parts of the internet, to send and receive emails, read the latest stock and share prices, or book airline tickets.
While WAP is in its early stages the number of sites that are WAP enabled is rapidly increasing. At a mere 105 x 42 x 17.5mm and weighing 83g you might think that usability would be compromised, but the menu system is well designed and the keys easy to press.
Whoever said ‘good things come in small packages’ must have had this phone in mind. ?:
