2 of 8 Corrine Schulze/CNET Networks
The Blast has an attractive display and well-designed navigation controls.

The Blast is just half an inch wide. The left spine holds a microSD card slot.

The Blast has a brilliant red color on its back side.
5 of 8 Corrine Schulze/CNET Networks
In an unusual move for a slider phone, the Blast's keypad buttons are raised above the surface of the phone.
6 of 8 Corrine Schulze/CNET Networks
The Blast's compact size lets you slide it easily into a pocket or bag.
7 of 8 Corrine Schulze/CNET Networks
The camera lens is exposed when the slider is up. There's a self-portrait mirror, but no flash.
