T-Mobile Pulse: A Typical Smartphone

t-pulseThe new T-Mobile Pulse is, at best, a normal smartphone, one that will neither excite you nor push you away. That being said, sometimes, being typical is not all bad; people will still go out and give you a try, especially when you come with a decent price.

The Design

This new offer is a block phone and comes with a body that measures 116.0 x 63.0 x 13.5 mm body that weighs 135 grams. It also features a 3.50 inch, capacitive touchscreen (320 x 480 pixels) that can display 16 million colors and has a multi-touch input method. Its touchscreen also puts to good use an accelerometer sensor and also features a tactile trackball that help in the navigation of the system. As a whole, the design of this mobile phone is plain, looking more like a lower quality Iphone than anything else.

Its Functionality

As for its functions, this smartphone runs on the Andriod 1.5 platform and also features the Media Center and MyCommunity services; the first Android smartphone to do so. The Media Center provides an avenue to users for managing their media while the MyCommunity allows him/her to manage their contacts. It also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack, microSD slot, email support, GPS capabilities, instant messaging support, Bluetooth connectivity and WiFi access. It also comes with a standard 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera.

The Verdict

Suffice it to say there is nothing really special with this new offer from T-Mobile. It is a normal smartphone that has a simple design and average functionality. What makes it marginally attractive is the fact that it comes at a price that is lower than the average smartphone and that should attract some people looking for a bargain. If you are looking for a bargain, then this is where you should start looking, if; however, you are looking for a beautiful, functionally packed smartphone, look somewhere else.
