The right-hand side sports a slider key for switching the handset on and locking the keypad. In 2008 a lot of phone makers will be adopting this button: for instance, Samsung for its touch-screen models, Sony Ericsson, and Nokia for select solutions in its portfolio.

Sitting on the left is the volume rocker as well as the voice button that enables voice dialing and starts up the sound recorder, depending on what menu you are in. The microphone is housed at the bottom of the handset.

The handset comes with around 26 Mb of internal memory, which can be used both for applications and data storage purposes. The bundled storage of 2Gb is identified as the first memory card, at least that's how it is displayed in the file manager.

Three image resolutions are available Large (2MP), Medium (1.3 MP), Small (480x640), and X-Small (240x320 pixels). Two levels of compression are at your disposal, and other settings allow turning off the shutter sound; vary exposure from -2 to +2, and selecting the lighting type (auto, sunny, cloudy, indoors, office). The handset also features a self-timer.
