Features of the phone include text messaging of course, they also have [inaudible] text messaging, you can also get mobile email on here from AOL, G-Mail, Hotmail, and so forth. You can also get your work email on here via Microsoft Exchange Active Sync. It also has GPS, a music player, and stereo Bluetooth.
