At ZYB we test SyncML synchronization of just about every cell phone on the market, so we can optimize the sync process. That’s because phone manufactures have very different ways to support SyncML to say the least. It also means we get our hands on a lot of cool devices from time to time – and some not so cool ones too.
Today, I was so lucky to get my hands on the brand new LG KU990 Viewty. It is a Symbian smartphone with a huge 3” touch screen and no keyboard. It also has a 5 mega pixel camera with flash and auto focus.
I was a big sceptic to begin with about the touch screen, since I’ve only seen it work properly on the iPhone. My fear was that it would be a hassle to write text messages or perform just the basic operations like it was on the HTC Touch.
After playing around with it all night I must say that I’m very impressed with the responsiveness and precision of the screen. It just works. Sometimes though, my fingers are too big for some small icons and the stylus that is bundled in the box is just not a thing I would like to carry around with my phone. That being said, it is a rare case when the stylus is needed – I have no plans to use it not even once.
There’s nothing like a new gadget.
