The screen on the Velocity Micro Cruz T408 is set back slightly from the bezel, presumably to prevent the screen from wear and tear. Unfortunately, the surrounding glossy plastic feels a little cheap.

Velocity Micro Cruz T408

A VGA resolution camera is included on the face of the Velocity Micro Cruz T408, though no camera is included on the back. The camera can be used in conjunction with the included Camera app, and presumably for video chat--though no chat app comes preinstalled.

The back of the Velocity Micro Cruz T408 is covered in a matte black plastic that gets smudgy, but feels better than a slick, gloss coat.
