> Knock CodeTM

Allows the user to set an unlock pattern on the phone’s screen so that with a simple sequence of taps on the display the phone opens directly to the home screen – enabling both added security and convenience.

 > Plug and PopTM

Plug and PopTM intuitively suggests the software applications to use when an accessory is plugged into the handset. For example, if a headset is plugged in, the suggested apps pop up on the screen making app startup a simple ‘one touch’ selection.

QSlideTM allows users to do three things at once using just one screen. Not only does QSlideTM let you view the entire screen of two different applications simultaneously, it also lets you change the size, position and transparency levels of the screen to suit your viewing needs.
