  2. Data sheet

The long telescopic pen lies comfortably in the hand, 240 x 320 pixels provide a high-resolution display, the display is however quite small compared to current Windows Mobile devices.

Large icons on the home screen provide direct access to important functions even without pen, the dial indicator is also big enough for the sticky keys. Thanks to the double occupied phone key can be at each call of choosing, which SIM card is to be used.

What is Windows Mobile

The phone sounds neat and is also loud enough. Which card will be used for data connections, can be adjusted in the menu. There you will find everything what characterizes Windows Mobile: Internet Explorer through a full-fledged Outlook in mini format up to Excel, PowerPoint, and Word. The mobile syncs contacts and appointments with your Windows PC via Active Sync.

The single-SIM competitors by HTC or Samsung, compete to the Smartphone yet provide a better connection to the Internet, because the DSTW1 does not support UMTS or Wi-Fi and also does not work with the current version of Windows Mobile. When it comes to match the data with the computer locally, the DSTW1 but cannot match.
