Torque i75 TV first impressions and review

I have a unit here with me and I could say it's a great jump from the traditional featurephones. The screen is large enough and colors are crisp. It feels like a smartphone because of the widget-based UI.

What i don't like is the resistive screen which needs a little more force compared to a capacitive touchscreen. But with a price like that, we can't complain.

As it is a Java phone, you can download apps and games online.

I will post a full review in the weekend so stay tuned!
