O2 X7 Overview

Sponsored link
 O2 X7 mobile phone

The triband GSM X7 from O2 was announced along with the XDA. It will allow its user to roam the world since it works with all GSM frequencies (GSM 900 / GSM 1800 / GSM 1900). The slider design is not new yet it comes with its own advantages such as taking up less space to store and of course, some feel the design much more appealing then the standard candy bar. The X7 weighs just 83 grams yet comes with a large display (128 x 160 pixels size) which is TFT and can show 256,000 colors. The keys have been arranged in the traditional manner, nothing new here. The call disconnect key double as the power switch as well.

Surprinsingly while the X7 may look to be one of the latest handsets that has been announced, it does manage to get a lot of red marks in features. The X7 skips out on a large number of features such as Bluetooth, EDGE, expansion slot and Wi-Fi.
While the absence of Wi-Fi and even EDGE can be justified, it is difficult to understand why of all things Bluetooth has been excluded. Remember the X7 has a 1.3 megapixel camera (built-in flash as well) and it can even capture video so an expansion slot would have been a definite asset. The phone has standard support for Java applications and WAP but thats as far as the feature list goes. The handset is very small, consider the dimensions of 85 x 41 x 21 mm, but I doubt whether this would be sufficient for an user to choose the O2 X7. One would even expect a Mp3 player or at least Mp3 ringtones, but the best that the X7 can do is polyphonic ringtones (64 chords). High speed data transfer can be done through GPRS (class 10 - I expected class 12). Perhaps the X7 is just a budget conscious slider handset from O2 in which case the crowd that it is targetting may not mind the missing features as much as we did.
