Ideal for networkers and die-hard texters, the T-Mobile Vibe arrives touting a slide-out QWERTY keypad and built-in Facebook smarts
Editor's Review of the Vibe E200
T-Mobile claim the Vibe E200 reinforces their commitment to deliver good quality, social networking handsets, with an equally appealing price-tag.
Design and Build
With the ideal handset for the teenage market, T-Mobile are catering to all needs, releasing the T-Mobile Vibe E200 in both black and pink. It's a great looking handset, its curved chassis and glossy paint job making it stand out from the crowd.
The handset packs a 2.8 inch touchscreen display alongside a full slide-out QWERTY keypad, which shows T-Mobile are sticking to their promise of delivering a social networking device. Underneath the display are 3 physical keys, which including 'call', 'hang up', and instant access to the handsets main menu.
Despite providing dual input methods, the T-Mobile Vibe E200 measures in at just 109 x 53 x 15mm, and with a weight of just 95g.
OS & Interface
The interface of the T-Mobile Vibe E200 has been designed with social networking in mind, providing users instant access to the handset's SMS, MMS, and email functions. Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and Bebo widgets come pre-installed too, allowing you to know what's going on at all times.
Multimedia & Storage
It may be cheap, but the T-Mobile Vibe E200 still comes equipped with plenty of entertainment features. It offers a 2 megapixel camera with zoom and video capture, an MP3 player with FM radio, video playback, integrated gaming and up to 2GB of memory for storing all of your files.
The handset doesn't come with 3G and WiFi connectivity, but with its built-in web browser, you're still able to browse web on this budget handset.
The T-Mobile E200 Vibe houses a pretty impressive battery, which offers up to 6 hours 30 minutes of talk time, and up to 390 hours on standby.
I loved this phone!!!! I had it for my 10th birthday and at the age of 13 I decided to get a new one purely because I would like more games on the phone. The querty keyboard is amazing. I have dropped this phone many times, but it just comes out in a little scratch and has never broken. I would definitely recommend this phone!!!!!!!!!!
you have to be kidding that this phone is good. I tried to sell it to my cat and he bit me and ran away. This phone is horrible. Like a cockroach, you whack it with a hammer and it will come back to life. Like a flipping zombie. Do not get it under pain of annoyance.
have had phone about 18 months and the touch screen is starting to become slow and unresponsive. will be changing phones soon, shame though as i liked the slide out qwerty keyboard as i text more then anything and didnt want phone to access internet eg facebook, twitter
it was really good i had it 8 months then it would not work.Know i dont want another.
