O2 Jet

It’s about time that someone came up with a decent alternative to the Nokia 6310/6230-type workhorse for the mainstream business user. ‘Jet’ seems like a somewhat racy name for this kind of phone, but otherwise it’s pretty well flawless. 
 
It’s a quad-band device with Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 for connectivity. The handset is quite tall and quite chunky, feels solid and robust, comes with a good screen and a keyboard with large, well-defined keys, and has a couple of other attributes that will appeal to the SME market – there’s no camera, no music player, and the battery life is stunning. O2 apparently sees the handset as an alternative to a landline , so you also get a good desk cradle that provides charging (and also acts a desk alarm clock if you want). The box also includes an in-car charger.
 
The simplified user interface features clear, uncomplicated icons, includes handy currency and unit converters, and offers POP and IMAP email support too.
 
On top of that it’s cheap – £60 on PAYG. It probably won’t win any prizes for style, but that’s probably an asset in appealing to its target market.
