Review: Samsung Highnote
On the Highnote home screen are white menu icons arranged in the standard 3 x 4 icon grid. But arrayed across the bottom of the Highnote splash screen is what Samsung calls a "carousel," a rotating row of menu options that can be horizontally scrolled through using the disk, either in directional mode or, less precisely, by spinning the disk.
The carousel includes direct access to many features and even submenus that automatically pop up as a particular multi-option icon (such as the Google search, which also gives you a sub-menu to access Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube and Google News). I guess this is what Sprint means by One Click navigation.
All function and application menu list items are numbered and can be accessed either by scrolling down and selecting a specific option or simply tapping the corresponding numeric key.
