The Shark also features Multi-instant messenger which combines all of the user’s accounts for GTalk, AIM, and Palringo Chat into one easy-to-use application for instant communication with all friends. Chatting with friends on any platform becomes as simple as opening a single application.
Shark 2 (S5550): Futuristic Fluid Slider with AMOLED
The Shark 2 has well-crafted mix of extrusion, Kevlar, and metallic surface that creates a strong, chiseled look that dictates the form factor. It boasts an AMOLED screen, producing true-to-life images at a faster response time while power consumption is lower than with other display types.
The 5-megapixel camera with Auto Focus takes brilliant photos anytime, anywhere. Video is captured at 30fps for steady playback and recorded in QVGA resolution. Other features include 110MB internal memory and an external microSD slot (up to 8GB),ensuring significant storage for any multimedia needs. From Bluetooth and USB connectivity to ample storage space, the Shark 2 does everything to ensure convenience and usability.
Shark 3 (S3550): Compact and Curvilinear
The Shark 3 merges simplicity and style in one with good design finesse and originality for general mobile users. The patterned metallic back cover gives a premium look from every angle, while the compact size enhances portability and ergonomic comfort.

Optimized user scenarios streamline navigation paths for common functions such as message composition, and the efficient layout increases visibility and readability of the menu screens.
