A serial 'texter's' dream come true, the Samsung D307 phone has a fully functional keyboard that enables it to act either as phone or a PDA. Its next amazing feature, an innovative dual-hinge design, allows users to open the phone vertically or horizontally for text messaging. The Samsung D307 has a rather plain and simple but functional design, its only drawback being a rather bulky frame in comparison to other mobile phones. However, with 3.7' x 1.9' x .85' dimensions and an above average weight of 4.3oz, how small a phone can one find complete with a QWERTY keyboard? Unlike the more common clamshell phones, the D307 has an internal antenna, a 176 x 220 pixel display, which projects a brilliant 262Kcolors. The external display screen is a simple 96x96 pixel monochrome; however, the date and time is clearly visible. Depending on the way the user wants to open the phone, the fully functional keypad has different functions. When opened vertically, the top three rows function as a four-way directional keypad (W, A, S & D) and a select button (X). The next row holds the 'answer' and 'reject' key functions. From the seventh row onward, one gets the normal 12-key numeric keypad. On opening the phone horizontally, a 30-key keyboard with additional keys like Option/Menu, Symbols, Space and four-way direction keys pops up. The phone runs on a 960 Li-Ion Battery, giving 5-hours' talk time and 200-hours' standby time. The Samsung D307 uses a 64-channel MIDI file format for polyphonic ringtones and MP3 file formats up to 300k in size. The phone supports SMS, MMS and EMS for text or multimedia messaging. Besides Bluetooth, the GPRS capabilities, enhanced with EDGE services, connect the phone to the Internet at a much faster rate. The phone's Voice Recognition Software, or speech-to-text, is another amazing feature that actually helps in nictitating what needs to be typed. The Voice key button is functional; one can dial numbers, check battery life, and launch programs with just a push of the button. With its QWERTY keyboard, the Samsung D307 targets users more involved with text messaging.
