A new mobile has landed on T-Mobile in the UK, coming under the firm’s own-brand range,although it is developed by manufacturer ZTE. The T-Mobile Vibe features a slider design allowing for both a full QWERTY keypad and touchscreen to exist in tandem on one budget mobiles with low specs.
Unsurprisingly the T-Mobile Vibe is not the most feature-packed handset on the market, with its 2.8 inch display dwarfed by most of its more expensive alternatives. However, it does have an obvious appeal for anyone who is a fan of messaging and texting with input not being hampered by this small display.
T-Mobile’s Nicola Shenton said that the inspiration for the launch of the Vibe came after the success of the Vairy Touch handset which the network launched at the same pay as you go price point.
Shenton pointed out that this combination of full QWERTY keypad and touchscreen display is unique to the Vibe at this end of the market.
A basic two megapixel camera is integrated into the Vibe and it will be bundled with a 2GB microSD memory card to compliment its specs with a decent amount of storage space.
