More About the T-Mobile Dash
This device uses a design that is becoming increasingly popular: a slim tablet shape (4.4 by 2.5 by 0.5 in.) with a QWERTY keyboard below the screen. Still, it has a few things that will help set it apart from the pack, like Wi-Fi b/g and its jog strip.

Instead of pushing up and down on a jog wheel, users run their finger up and down a touch-sensitive strip just to the right of the screen. Above and below this strip are areas that can be touched to open the Start Menu and go Back.
The Dash includes a 320-by-240-pixel display that is in landscape mode by default.
This is a quad-band GSM/GPRS phone with EDGE support, plus it also sports Bluetooth 2.0 short-range wireless networking.
It is one of the first devices to offer T-Mobile’s myFaves service, which allows for unlimited nationwide calling to any five numbers* on any network
This smartphone also includes a 1.3 megapixel camera and a microSD memory card slot.
According to T-Mobile, this device offers up to 5 hours of talk time, or up to 9 days of stand-by time.
