What happens when a Quick Messaging Device (QMD) meets Android technology? The makers of the Samsung DoubleTime strive to answer this question. They’ve turned a regular QMD phone into a smartphone that runs on the Android platform. The DoubleTime isn’t the fastest or most innovative smartphone out there, and it isn’t necessarily the best QMD available. However, it is one of the few affordable phones right now that combines the two types of cell phone concepts. If you use your phone primarily to send text messages, but you want some smartphone features (such as being able to search the web and send emails with relative ease), the Samsung DoubleTime is the phone for you. Here is some more information about the pros and cons of this new phone:

     It comes with a big QWERTY keyboard. The size of this keyboard makes the phone a great choice for people who are serious about messaging and sending emails quickly and efficiently.

     The DoubleTime folds out in the shape of a miniature laptop. The keyboard can rest flat on a surface to allow for effortless typing.

     This phone comes with two display screens. One is on the front of the phone, and one is on the inside of the phone. You use the interior screen when you’ve folded out the keyboard of the phone. Both of these screens have a resolution of 320 x 480 pixels. Smartphone users looking for clarity and color vibrancy on their screens might be disappointed with this resolution.

     Due to its large keyboard and double screens, this phone is thick. It’s not something you can slip into your pocket unnoticed. The DoubleTime creates a bulge. However, its thick exterior makes it a pretty sturdy phone. Thick plastic protects the phone’s important internal hardware.

     The DoubleTime runs on Android 2.2.2 Froyo. This platform has been around for a year and a half. It is definitely not the most advanced Android technology, but it works for simple web surfing and app downloading.

     Some users have complained that the DoubleTime takes a while to transition from screen to screen.

     This phone has excellent battery life. Some users report being able to use the phone for up to two days without charging it, which is excellent for a smartphone.

     AT&T is charging $50 for the Samsung DoubleTime when you sign up for a two-year contract. This is a reasonable price for people who are interested in owning a basic smartphone. 

     Unless you are incredibly interested in purchasing an affordable QMD that has smartphone qualities, this phone may not be the best option for you. Overall, it may be too difficult for many users to get past this phone’s thick body, less than impressive screen, and dated Android technology.
