Introducing the Taurus, the newest Android-powered smartphone on the market. Combining a non-intrusive sliding QWERTY keyboard for accuracy and a large 2.8 inch screen for a better view, the Taurus offers unparalleled mobile convenience and is ideal for both work and play.

With the Taurus, you don't have to choose between a QWERTY keyboard for convenience or a larger screen because this smartphone combines both in a non-intrusive slide design that fits perfectly in your hand. If you need to send a long email, or even just a quick SMS reply, slide the phone up to reveal the full QWERTY keyboard with ultra responsive keys that make typing messages and emails easier than ever, saving you more time and offering more convenience. When you want to play a few games or watch video, just slide the keyboard back down and glide through menus and websites on the large 2.8 inch touchscreen.

Also included with Taurus is the power of the popular Android 2.2 operating system. The pre-installed Android Marketplace gives you access to hundreds of thousands of Android apps, many of them free. Try all the great social networking apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Tumblr; so that you can keep up to date with all your friends and family conveniently. If you're more of a gamer, then choose from the many interesting and unique games on offer like Angry Birds, Fieldrunner, and much more - all available to you on the Taurus Android smartphone!

Excellent phone but more info needed

This is a phone I bought for my wife to replace a phone she had stolen. The phone itself is very similar to a Blackberry and has many of the same functions. The phone is a very good, very responsive screen most of the time and once you have worked your way round a smartphone they are mostly the same Not for the first time buyer of a smartphone though. More instructions would be great, maybe a picture of the phone and all it's buttons, connectors, what does what etc. But overall 8/10
