TechCentral reviewed Dopod 577W smart phone and concluded that “I have to say that after a couple of weeks using the 577W, I really did like the phone a lot.
What surprised me the most was that the built-in WiFi turned out to be more useful than I thought, for the simple reason that you’re most likely to have a phone with you at all times than either a WiFi-enabled Pocket PC or a notebook.
My only real concern is the joystick, which failed during the time I tested it – hopefully production units will not suffer from the same problem I had.
Nevertheless, at RM1,688, there’s very little to complain about – after all you’d be hard-pressed to find another phone with this kind of features and this kind of versatility at this price.”
Pros: Feature-packed; built-in WiFi coupled with a real web browser is very useful; a truly pocketable smartphone; many installable applications; very affordable.
Cons: May be a little overwhelming for non-geeks.
