Philips' forgettable S660 candybar
We wanted to give this thing a chance, we really did -- but the unforgivable GSM 900 / 1800 dual-band GSM radio was the final nail in the coffin for us. Don't get us wrong, Philips' new S660 might go on to make quite a splash in the international low-end market, but without support for any North American band, US consumers looking for a solid, inexpensive handset had best not get too attached. The S660 lacks any sort of expandability and brings a mere 128 x 128 display and VGA cam to the table, but offers a surprisingly solid (for its class) 128MB of built-in storage. Its 18mm of thickness is also bit pudgy by 2006 standards, but the lack of GSM 850 or 1900 is an error far more grave in our books.
