"Good phone but tricky texting"

The Motorola A1000 is a wonderful but frustrating phone all rolled into one.

You may notice from the picture that there are no numeric keys - well this is not one of those phones with the keys hidden - it just doesn\'t have any (they\'re on-screen)

My A1000 is on Contract with 3 and the web access and mobile television is outstanding. You will not believe the quality of the picture and sound as you watch over 15 tv channels live (including BBC & ITV)

Using the phone as....a phone is easy to do, an on-screen keypad appears and it is very responsive as you touch type the required phone number or navigate to your contacts.

The video playback quality is superb but the Camera is pretty poor by todays standards as it is only just over 1 Mega Pixel.

The one area where this phone lets me down is the texting. Texting is done using the stylus and it has predictive text which lends to writing pretty fast messages using the on-screen keyboard. Unfortunately I can only manage to write texts whilst sitting or standing still. No more using your thumb to fire a quick text whilst walking down the street. The keyboard is pretty small so you have to be accurate with your stylus in order to text

All in all a good phone and worth a look at, only let down by needing to be still to text Summary: Good but if you like to text on the move, this isn\'t for you
