[ Music ] ^M00:00:01 >> Hi, I'm Kent German senior editor here at CNET.com today we'll take a first look at the Motorola 195S. This is a new phone for T Mobile service. Overall it looks like the earlier Motorola, same basic flip phone design looks a lot like earlier Motorola's like the V600 some of those series except it doesn't have an external antenna. It does have the same external display though long and rectangular, we see a lot from Motorola. It does cram in all the date and time and all that necessary information it just doesn't show any photo caller ID. But that's not really an issue since the phone doesn't have a camera anyway. Here in the back you have a speaker and here on this side you have a volume rocker and Motorola smart key. Open up inside does use some Motorola standard menu systems getting to look a little old now hopefully Motorola comes up with something new soon. Navigation buttons are pretty easy to use you have a circular toggle okay button in the center. It is raised just above the surface of the phone, which is nice. The only thing is dialing by feel can be a little difficult. Overall, this is a basic phone there's no camera here so it's great for use if you would work in a place that doesn't allow camera phones. But it does have Bluetooth so it is a basic phone with Bluetooth, which we're beginning to see more of, but we really like. I'm Kent German and this is the Motorola V 195S. ^M00:01:10 [ Music ]
