>> I'm Nicole Lee, Associate Editor with cnett.com and this is the UTStarcom Coupe from Verizon Wireless. As you can see it is mostly black with some red, white and blue X's all around. On the front you do get a monochrome external display. On the side you get the typical voice command button. You get a charger jack. On the other side you do get a volume rocker and a headset jack. [Inaudible] you get a pretty nice display. The colors are pretty good and the font is nice and legible. [Inaudible] get the thing that makes the Coupe a very special phone. You get three letters. The letter I, C and E and they stand for in case of emergency. So these three buttons actually correspond to the emergency phone number that you can assign to the phone. Below that you get typical navigational controls as well as the dedicated 9-1-1 key. As you can see the key pad font is really nice and large. As far as the speakers go, there really isn't much to say...text messaging is typical and the voice command, but that's about it. There's no blue tooth, there's no [inaudible] messaging or anything like that. You think this phone because of all the emergency buttons is probably meant for senior citizens or for kids or for anyone who has immediate health care need. It's only twenty bucks with a Verizon Wireless contract, which I think is pretty good. So if you want a simple no nonsense phone with several keys dedicated for emergency purposes, this phone is definitely the one to get. My name is Nicole Lee. This has been the UTStarcom Coupe from Verizon Wireless. [ MUSIC ] ^M00:01:34
