GQ3 Duo Rage is the flagship music phone of DTC Mobile. Duo Rage is a dual SIM phone and developed in a java platform and features QWERTY keypad that comes with dedicated music keys, large stereo speaker and FM radio. On top of that you get support for stereo Bluetooth and a 3.5mm audio output jack.
It comes pre-loaded with music player which enables you to stream all favourite tracks on your mobile. It doesn’t have a large fixed memory but it does come with micro SD memory slot that supports 2GB card – enough room for around 500 songs.
It features 2 inch colored LCD and in the back you’ll find a 1.3 megapixel camera with LED flash. That sure doesn’t impress but, considering the low price tag, it’s a turn on feature.
The UI reminds me of an earlier version of Ericsson phones, java has gone a long way, and it keeps on advancing. There are pre-installed apps like Yahoo Messenger, Twitter and Facebook. GQ3 Duo Rage is a feature phone rather than a smartphone. That means that it doesn’t support 3G or WiFi. Internet connectivity depends on GPRS, though the speed is limited but it still works and remains dependable. Additional Java apps can also be downloaded over the internet or can be saved in a memory card.
