Is inevitable anymore that the QWERY cell phone design ala Blackberry and also the wide touch screen design ala iPhone have become the nowadays’ trend to date. However, some of the manufactures try not to follow that exact trend to their newest products to make differentiation to the other competitors.
Then they came up with a really great idea, which is by presenting their own smart phones as QWERTY slider and touch screen smart phones, which is called as hybrid. By doing so, they can provide 2 functionalities into one phone. Today, there are many smart phones around the market that have this hybrid design. Samsung Mobile B3410 is one of them.
The design of this phone is not that different with LG GW525. The thing is, the body size of this phone feels pretty smaller. And also, the whole body of this phone is layered by glossy plastic material (which feels slippery), although it looks fancy, however, it’s also easy to get dirty and scratched by our finger prints.
The back side of this phone can be slide to open the QWERY keyboard. At all once, it can make the screen display change into the landscape mode (horizontal) and will activate the Create Message feature.
Interface and Functionality
Beside the QWERY buttons, in order to access the menu, you can also use the touch screen on the front side, which is a capacitive screen. It means the screen is more responsive by the finger touch. The screen itself is also equipped Samsung-exclusive Touch Wiz UI technology which in the form of widget and couple of menus display. The screen of this phone can also display virtual QWERY keyboard and numeric keypad.
