Our first glimpse of a Windows Phone 7 is the LG Optimus 7.

Windows 7 and Samsung make a beautiful couple coming together through the Super Amoled 4” screen.

The 3.8-inch LCD display is clear and bright. Buttons on Windows phones are brought down to 3 so there’s not much else to distract the simple magazine style menu which is your custom homepage.

Stylish brushed aluminium and a minimal design make this a desirable choice.

The reverse sports a stylish disc holding the camera, portrait mirror and flash.

| Buyer’s Guide

Touchscreen phones Millions of users now use touch screen phones. Quicker and easier to access than actual buttons – it’s now all about the user interface and the software. Manufactures strive to make the experience as enjoyable as possible.

“Photos and movies look much better on a large screen” The touchscreen format was once limited to smartphones and expensive multimedia focused products, not for everyone’s budget. All mobile manufacturers are now producing touchscreen phones to fit all pockets – literally. LG had great success with their Cookie, Samsung with the Tocco lite and now manufacturers are making the touchscreen experience even better and more affordable. But what are the advantages of a touchscreen phone over a regular or ‘classic’ phone? Studies have shown that touch screens, such as automatic ticket machines that you would find in a

train station or a cinema are more intuitive, you see an instruction on the screen and the immediate response is to touch the screen, that response is exactly the same with mobile phones. The fact that many touchscreen phones only have 3 buttons makes it much easier for the manufacturer, there are less components to make and therefore less moving parts that can get stuck or get damaged.

so easy on a touchscreen phone when you turn it on it’s side (landscape mode) a full qwerty keyboard is presented on the screen and you can type away with both thumbs, much quicker than using a keypad. This format is the future of mobile phones and at The Carphone Warehouse we have the range and the expert advice, ask in-store today.

Add the fact that your pictures and movies are bound to look much better on a 3.5 inch screen compared to a 2 inch screen then you start to see why they are getting so popular.

James, Head Office.

Value phones A great mobile phone is made from many unique features such as mp3 players, digital cameras and social networking communication centres, but a the heart of it all is a phone – what you use to tell your loved ones that you’re on your way, the phone you use to text your mates about meeting up. It wakes you up in the morning, it’s radio delivered the news on the bus or the results of the match. A value phone can be big on features but it can also be a lifesaver when it comes to communication – with you all the time or in the glovebox of the car for emergencies.

In-car accessories At The Carphone Warehouse we feel that safety should always come first. We always suggest that anyone thinking about using their mobile phone in the car should look at the bluetooth options on offer – driving while holding a mobile phone is illegal.

What is the law?

as the phone is not in your hand or being supported by any part of your body, ie. between your shoulder and the side of your head.

It is an offence to use a mobile phone while driving, unless you are calling 112 or 999. If the Gardaí charge you for this offence you will get a fixed charge notice of €60. If you pay the fixed charge you will get two penalty points. If you choose not to pay the fixed charge and are then convicted in court you will get four penalty points and a fine of up to €2,000. Using a hands-free kit with your phone is completely legal, as long

You could be prosecuted for dangerous driving, careless driving or driving without due care and attention because of this. And you could also have your licence endorsed or even lose your licence. So remember, the safe control of your car, van or bus is your responsibility. Don’t use your mobile phone and drive!
