What’s in the box: Handset, Battery, Travel Charger, Stereo Ear Piece, USB Cable, Manual.

Intro: I had a chance to review Lattefone latest GSM phone Latte Slim 11B. The Slim 11B is a stylish thin candybar type handset. Here we take a look at the Latte Slim 11B phone.

Design: The first thing I noticed when opening the box was just how small the phone is. It is one of the smallest phone that I have seen. Even smaller and thinner than the Motorola L7. Which is saying a lot! The Slim 11B phone has a similar Metal etch keypad as the Motorolla SLVR/Razr. The Slim 11B comes in Silver that oozes style and attractiveness.

Function: The Latte Slim 11B features a 1.9″ 260K Color TFT LCD Screen, 1.3 MP Camera with Video Recording, 64mb of built memory with Tranflash Slot for additional memory, MP3/MP4 Multimedia functions, and more…

Performance: Phone calls perform well using Cingular’ service. But will depend on your coverage area. Video playback is excellent on this handset. Keep in mind that the screen is small so its most useful for short films, music videos and trailers. The stereo speaker was even louder than my Cowon A2 pmp. And MP3 playback was equally as good rivaling dedicated MP3 Players. The 1.3MP camera on back of unit is comparable to other cell phone cameras. And the phone also has unlimited video recording.

GSM: The phone will come unlocked which is a major plus and will work with most GSM carriers such as Cingular and T-Mobile.

Menu: The menu was pretty straight forward. D-pad for moving up and down and then clicking ok and back to go forward or back. Very easy to navigate which is plus.

Adding Music/Photos: The Lattefone Slim 11b has 64mb built in memory to get you started. Also has a Transflash/MicroSD slot for added space. Unlike other phones The Slim 11b truly makes it easy to uploads songs to the phone. Simply drag/drop your photos and mp3s into the correct folder.

Conclusion: While Latte Communications is not a household name just yet. They certainly make solid phones that perform well and have quite a few features. If you are looking for a nicely designed phone thats ultra thin then you will not find better than the Latte Slim 11b.

    I bought this phone when it first came out back on July 2006. Even thought I was skeptical about the price…man, I couldn’t be happier with it. The speaker is very, but I mean very very loud… good for music listeners. There is no video recording restrictions like many Motorola phones today, this phone beats everything Motorola has to offer. I’ve had many complements from many of people, that really like how this phone looks. Highly Recommended!

    great unlocked phone. very happy with my purchase. i had a huge touch screen before this and honestly i like this better. it’s smaller easier to use and it’s not too much for me. both me and the wife love our small phones. they are practical and plus texting is easier. got both of them at gsmallover.com and maybe even pick up another one. unlocked cell phones are always better because we can switch carriers and go over seas. 2 thumbs up
