Not only does e-ink deliver a paper-like contrast ratio and a low power consumption, it enables updatable information. So, the keyboard can transform before your eyes, depending on what it’s being used for at the time.
The Mobile Phone is a little bigger and boxier than a lot of other mobile flip phones, but there’s a reason – there’s a lot to this phone. Just the ability to change from landscape to portrait mode is sort of cool. That takes up a lot of room, though. It’s worth it because the Mobile Phone doesn’t end up *too* big.
If you like messaging and use it a lot, you’re going to like the Alias 2 from Samsung. It can be a bit pricey if you’re paying for all the extras, but the base phone comes at a very reasonable price.Overall, it’s missing some features, but for the price you can’t really complain.
