GSMArena presents a new breed of 360-degree spins

05 Mar, 2008

We bet many of you have spotted our latest exclusive feature that we announced some while ago. It's about the bunch of handsets that you see spinning around our website in full 360-degree virtual reality show - or simply put it's our Flash-based 360-degree spins as we like to call them.

We were able to put up quite a collection of those and they became popular enough to try and enhance them a bit. So today, based on user input, we finally managed to pull off a second, enhanced version for your viewing pleasure.

Our new 360-degree spins offer improved interactivity and most importantly - they are now bigger in size and better in quality so that you can take a really good look at those juicy handsets we've been spinning around.

As of today all past spins have been redesigned with the new functionality and all those to come in the near future will follow the same path.

Some of the new features you will likely make note of are the following:

  • There is a pre-loading indicator
  • The handset no longer rotates magnetically with your mouse, you have to drag
  • A double-click makes the handset do a single full 360-degree rotation
  • Dragging a corner up to speed and letting it go leaves the handset rotating thanks to simulated inertia
  • There is now a overlay hint how to get the most our of the new functionality
  • All new 360-degree spins are now BIGGER and come with better quality

You can have a go with our latest 360-degree spin of the Samsung U900 Soul just as a taster of the new functionality. For the rest of our 360-degree collection head right this way, please.

Anyways, we thought that those changes would be welcomed, but step up and give us your opinion in the comments section.

For now it's a great tool and the improvements are well done. But in the near future you should add as many options as possible - such as Zoom in/out, manual control (user open/close slide phones, memory stick areas, backpannels) And as an ...
