When I first posted about the B710 there wasn’t a whole lot about it that made me think it was worth mentioning other than a quick blurb. I mean, sure, the PIP is cool, but I didn’t think it was THAT cool. After seeing it in person yesterday (and unknowingly a few days before since it’s my Uncle’s phone), I’ve certainly changed my mind. The ability to watch a terrestrial channel and satellite channel at the same time is neat, but the B710 possesses a feature that absolutely blew my mind. It can take 3D images. That’s right, you heard me, 3D images. Something to do with the screen produces the images in such a way that they look 3D. I heard Sharp had done something similar in the past, but this is the first time I’ve seen it in person.
As I mentioned before, I had some hands-on time with the phone earlier in the week, but it didn’t seem like anything special. I immediately flipped it over and saw that the camera was only 1.3-megapixel and it had two lenses. Two lenses? 1.3-megapixel? Time to move on, right? Well, the $800+ tag might sway your decision. It’s probably the coolest phone I’ve seen in a long time. Other than the F700, which I hope makes its way stateside soon. ☺
