O2 Joggler - O2 Joggler

score

Sections

Despite the feast of features, there’s still room for improvement. Although there’s an icon on the main screen for Internet radio, this hasn’t been implemented yet. This is a shame as we think it’s a key feature that would greatly enhance the usefulness of the Joggler – anyone fancy an Internet radio alarm clock for the bedroom?


It also would have been nice to have an SD card slot so you could view pictures directly from your digital camera’s SD card rather than having to load them over the network or via the USB port. The stereo speakers are a bit on the tinny side too – think kitchen radio rather than mini Hi-Fi quality, but then again at least there is a mini jack stereo output on the rear so you can connect it to powered speakers if you like.


Furthermore, there’s a distinct feeling that the Joggler can do even more than what O2 has so far unleashed. Especially as the Joggler is really a re-branded and re-jigged version of Open Peak’s OpenFrame, and from what we can tell from OpenPeak’s website, the original has a wider selection of preloaded apps.


”’Verdict”’


Given the range of features on offer, the Joggler is surprisingly cheap. You can buy it from O2 for £150 or if you’re already an O2 customer you can get it for free if you forgo an impending handset upgrade. Certainly, the device has its failings, but overall we couldn’t help liking it a lot. It’s just so easy to use and has such a neat line-up of features that it really grows on you over time.
