Dopod C730

01 June 2007
Written by Mike Meers

The latest out of the Dopod camp is the C730 – a HSDPA smartphone with a full QWERTY keyboard, Windows Mobile 6 operating system, 65,536 colour TFT LCD display, 2mpx digital camera, and microSD memory card storage.

The C730 is an ultra-slim smartphone-come-PDA form factor handset, measuring just 112.5 x 62.5 x 13.5mm. It weighs 120 grams with the battery, so isn’t much larger than your average high-end handset. On the front of the C730 is the QWERTY keyboard, navigational keys, and the 65k QVGA colour display.

Running the brand spanking Windows Mobile 6 Standard operating system, the C730 runs on a 400MHz Samsung processor. There is 128MB of ROM and 64MB of persistent storage RAM. Users can extended the total storage of the handset with microSD memory cards up to 2GB in size.

The C730 comes with a range of pre-installed applications, including Windows Media Player 10 Mobile, Internet Explorer Mobile, Office Mobile (Word, Excel, and PowerPoint), InfoFeed RSS reader, and Adobe Reader LE.

As mentioned earlier, the C730 is a HSDPA-enabled handset. Supporting the WCDMA 850, 1900, and 2100MHz networks, the 3G capabilities of the C730 can be experienced all over the world. IF 3G connectivity is not available, the handset will switch to one of the four GSM bands supported: 850, 900, 1800, or 1900MHz.

On 2G networks, GPRS or EDGE can be used for packet data connectivity. WCDMA and HSDPA data is supported on 3G networks. The handset also has a 802.11b/g compliant radio for connecting to WiFi networks. This is a cheap and (sometimes) faster alternative to packet data connections over a 2G or 3G network.

SMS/EMS, MMS, and e-mail is supported. Microsoft Direct Push and BlackBerry Connect push e-mail is also supported – working hand in hand with the high speed packet data protocols.

The Dopod C730 also includes a 2mpx digital camera, able to capture still images up to 1600 x 1200 pixels. The handset also supports video recording, and clips can be added to MMS or e-mail messages and sent to friends in an instant.

The C730 should be available in Australia mid-June.
