The Tanager

Here is how the phone looks like from the front. Nothing too exciting here. You will find a keypad, the dial and hang-up buttons, a Home button, a Back button and two soft-keys.

The most interesting feature is the little joystick placed between the screen and the keypad. It is an 8-way joystick This was confirmed by playing some games, of course! ;)

Though it is not easy to get the diagonals right but they are there. Normal telephony applications won't require you to hit the diagonals anyway. You can also push the joystick inwards, which works just like an Enter key. You can use it to select options and confirm selections.

On the left side of the phone, from the top down, you will find the Power, Record and the Volume Control buttons. The only unique button is the Record button. Pressing it brings up the voice recording application which allows you to record voice notes.

Near the lower end of the phone is a Secure Digital slot. You can see it in the picture, occupied by a San Disk 128MB SD card. And if you are wondering, no, it is not SDIO capable.

There's nothing much to see on the other (right) side, other than the earphones jack. My set did not come with any hands-free kit and since I cannot get it over here, I was not able to test it out. But it produces a stereo output, from what I've heard.

The screen is 176 pixels x 220 pixels in size and is capable of reproducing full 16-bits of colour. It looks like a reflective screen but it could be transreflective screen as well. I can't see which side the light is being projected from.

According to my Tanager's About screen, I have roughly 7.5MB of storage memory and 12.53MB of working memory. And it appears to be running on an ARM720 processor.
