TakingStock – Inspect-a-gadget

With competition among mobile phone makers as tough as getting a BT engineer out within 48 hours, manufacturers are adding more and more gizmos to make their handsets the most attractive.

Enter Spectronic with the Sidetouch which looks like a useful piece of kit for James Bond. Not only does it make calls, but it takes digital pictures. Useful for meetings when the client leaves the room and you find a document you’d rather peruse at your leisure.

Is also has a touch sensitive system up and down its side which controls all its functions and negates the need for a fully fledged mouse.

TS tried it but ended up taking endless pictures of ears and chins. Perhaps you shouldn’t try to make a call and take a photo at the same time. ?:
