First Look: T-Mobile Tap1:44 /
If you can get past the limitations of the screen size, the T-Mobile Tap is a decent midrange touch screen phone.
>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor for cnet.com and this is a First Look at the T-Mobile Tap. As you can see here it is a very simple touch screen phone from T-Mobile, it has kind of a small two inch display here, very nice and colorful however. Underneath that you do get the physical keys like the Talk key, the square navigation toggle as well as the End key. On the side here you do get the volume rocker as well as the screen lock key and the camera key. On the back you do get the camera lens as well as an external speaker. The Micro SD card slot is located behind the battery cover. The Taps home screen has a widget tracing board to the touch widget interface on a lot of Samsung phones. What you do is you tap on the side here, and it will reveal a full widget tray of application shortcuts. You can drag and drop these icons to and from the home screen. Also on the home screen are four shortcut icons along the bottom row of the display that correspond to the phone dialer, the contacts list, the web browser and the main menu. There is also a little shortcut icon on the right side that corresponds to the sound profiles. Features include a 2.0 megapixel camera and camcorder, a music player, an FM radio, GPS with Telenav support, a full HTML web browser, stereo Bluetooth as well as a Google Maps application with street view and traffic information. The T-Mobile Tap is available for $80 with a two-year service agreement or $180 without the contract. I'm Nicole Lee and this has been a First Look at the T-Mobile Tap.
