The R380 is a small-sized dual band "smartphone" that combines the functions of a mobile phone with advanced communication features such as WAP, SMS and e-mail. Combining international roaming in over 120 countries on five continents with WAP services that provide Internet information, the device is an innovative mobile phone and Internet tool. It looks likes a mobile phone, but open the flip and the large, graphics-rich, touch-sensitive screen reveals a wide range of communications and personal organizational tools.

The WAP services on the device provide access to Internet information in a format specifically designed for mobile devices. Consumers can securely dial in to their corporate network to access and send emails and visit favorite websites. The phone also provides secure access with its built-in WAP security and soft token authentication. It is based on Symbian's operating system, which is specifically designed for wireless information devices.

The device's integrated PDA tools include calendar, contacts, notepad, and a voice memo. Using the contacts, one can initiate phone calls and send text messages directly though the names, numbers and addresses stored in the smartphone. Editing "to do" lists and contacts or replying to messages is simple. The phone offers the option to use the stylus on the touchscreen and virtual keyboard or simply write on the screen since it supports JOT by CIC for easy and natural handwriting recognition. With compatibility to applications such as Microsoft Outlook and Lotus, the device gives the option for data to be synchronized with a PC and can automatically update new entries from one device to another. The device keeps all stored data, even if power is lost, unlike other PDA devices.

The Voice Control feature allows calls to be placed or answered using a voice command. With the speakerphone option, one can speak on the phone at the same time as checking their schedule or while taking notes using the notepad application.
