Velocity Mobile 103 VGA Smartphone SlashGear Review

 

With the current economic climate and the hotly contested smartphone war, it's either a great time or a ridiculous time to be launching a new cellphone. 

Expert review by:

Velocity 103 review

 

Though the Velocity 103 offers a lot in the features department, the Windows Mobile smart phone is going to have a tough time competing in the market space because of its difficult interface, performance issues and high price tag

Sharp VGA touchscreen ; Over-the-air software updates ; HSDPA support, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS

Velocity Odyssey user interface isn't intuitive ; Expensive

Conclusion Unfortunately, the Velocity 103 turned out to be a bit of a disappointment. The Velocity Odyssey interface isn't as intuitive as the company would have you think. If it weren't for the user's manual you wouldn't even know the shortcuts...

Velocity 103 review

 

You won't be familiar with Velocity Mobile, but the company expects to make a splash before Christmas with smartphones. The first to hit the shelves is the Velocity 103, which has some novel features…

The device has tidy looks, a touch-enabled interface, and has an attractive price

The camera is basic and it only has a 2.5mm headset jack

A neat Windows Mobile device, although we aren't sure it does enough to really challenge the current market leaders.

Velocity Mobile 103 and 83 review

 

My introduction to Velocity mobile went along the lines of: Matt... "Can you have a look at a Velocity from me?" Steve... "What's that?" Matt... "a new windows mobile, of course!" At this point you are probably in the same boat as me,...

VOTA – Velocity over the air updates ; VGA Screen ; Clear call quality

Flimsy back case and buttons ; Basic camera ; Dull
