Dopod Throws First Punch Again with the 595 & 838 Pro

Even without stylus input and a sliding QWERTY keypad, the Dopod 595 is no less impressive. Within its manageable and slim form factor that is only 14.8mm thick are 128MB ROM, 64MB RAM, a 2.2-inch TFT LCD that supports 65,000 colors, Bluetooth, 3G capability, and a multitude of bundled useful software for day-to-day usage. Like the heavily endowed 838 Pro, the 595 also comes with document viewers for PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents, but where hardware is concerned, the latter lacks Wi-Fi connectivity for a richer wireless experience. A major concern however, is that even though it packs a dual-camera configuration, the Dopod 595 does not support video calls, which is an oddity considering that it is after all a 3G handset.
