You can’t deny that this is one tidy handset with some very good specs. Having a Bang & Olufsen sound chip on board sounds rather fantastic but lets just hope that the device has the speakers to handle that chip on the outside and top spec headphones on the outside.
Universal remote control in T2
You can program T2 to replace any of your infrared remote controls. Operating your TV, music center, game console or air conditioner has never been this easy and convenient.
Just point your old remote control to the top of our handset, press the desired command, and it will be recorded into the memory of the smartphone. Due to built-in gesture recognition in T2 you can even navigate menus on a screen by the wave of your hand.
Audio by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®
T2 comes with ICEpower® – a Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® technology that combines extremely high-energy efficiency, ultra compactness and superior sound quality. When listening to your favorite tune or radio station on T2 you will experience a more natural, rich and powerful sound.
8 megapixel camera
With T2 you have all in place to take great photos and capture the important moments in life. The camera with autofocus features 8 megapixels and has a dedicated button on the right side of the phone. This way you have quick access to the camera whenever you encounter a perfect motive. The camera app of the operating system enhances the speediness further due to a rapid shutter, which takes photos in a split second.
When taking pictures of friends and family the system helps you set focus on their faces. This happens because of a built-in face detection feature. For more control, you can tap to focus anywhere in the preview image.
T2 comes with the latest version of Google’s operating system AndroidTM, called 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. This is the world’s most popular system for managing phones and tablets and it gives access to more than 400.000 apps via Android MarketTM – including for instance FacebookTM, TwitterTMand Angry BirdsTM.
The 4.0 version of AndroidTM gives access to a lot of new innovative features including facial recognition unlock, network data usage monitoring and control, unified social networking contacts, photography enhancements, offline email searching, app folders, and information sharing using NFC.
