Voxtel 1iD – thin slider by Voxtel
The company of Voxtel keeps on developing its iD mobile phone series, and Voxtel 3iD (reviewed on our site) is the first sign of the line. The next model got the name of Voxtel 1iD, being a 1.3 MP slider equipped with T-Flash slot and Bluetooth module.
As I have already told that is a slider shaped phone, however, much different from rival products: the body is slim but wide with the bottom part a little larger than the top one, which looks unusual for this form-factor. Despite this unusual solution the device will lie comfortably in your hand and will suit a trousers' or a shirt pocket without a problem due to thin body. The size of the 1iD is average (104x51x15.8 mm) with the weight forming 80 grams.
The body is made of qualitative plastic the black covering represents a combination of lacquered and dull (also a combination of black and blue is available). The assembly quality is high - no backlash and loose parts.
Due to a well realized automatic finishing, opening the device with one hand causes no troubles. For more comfort at opening, you can use a small projection under the screen, it serves as a rest.
The right side features an interface connector closed with a rubber shutter fixed on the body. A little below a T-Flash memory slot is placed also covered with a plastic covering fixed on the body. The left side holds a coupled volume button and a headset connector below it, it is also covered with a rubber shutter.
The display placed on the front panel is 2" TFT with the resolution of 176x220 pixels, 262K colors are possible. The picture shown is of very good quality, and it seems the screen is equal to the one in Voxtel 3iD.
A 4D button of average size with an OK one centered in it is placed under the screen. This button is quite comfortable at work and responses at pressures clearly. Only after opening the phone, you access the number keypad, which buttons are large and comfortable in work. The backlighting is bright blue.
The back side holds an objective of a 1.3 MP camera with a light diode flash nearby. The rest of the surface is taken by a battery cover, which is fixed very well and has no backlash. A Li-Ion 850 mAh battery is placed under the cover. The manufacturer declared about 5 hours of talks and up to 150 hours of standby time.
The main phone menu repeats the style of Voxtel V500 representing an animated picture. Only one menu item is available on the display and you can use fast navigation using number series.
Integrated memory size reaches 64 MB and besides, you can expand memory using a T-Flash memory card. A 128 MB card is shipped with the device.
The phone features a phone book for 1000 contacts, MP3 player, which allows making own play lists (but can't work in background mode) and a video player for 3GP files.
Bluetooth version 1.1 is similar to the same in Voxtel 3iD and supports the following profiles - Headset, Handsfree, Serial Port, Dial Up Networking, File Transfer, Object Push.
The first attractive thing about Voxtel 1iD is its design and thin body. The functionality is also at a high level, it covers the 1.3MP camera, memory card slot, MP3 player and integrated Bluetooth module. Rival companies offer similar solutions (for instance, the PG-3600 by Pantech), however, their design is not as interesting and they are much alike.
Voxtel 1iD is expected on sale in November 2005 for approximate price of 400 USD.
