Other features include a QVGA display, stereo Bluetooth, a real xenon camera flash, and image stabilization for video capture.

This phone is not currently available from any major U.S. carrier. It is compatible with some U.S. networks, and may be available from third-party dealers or smaller, regional carriers.
