The device can operate in GSM900/1800 as well as WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) networks and captures still pictures and videos with audio of up to 2.5 minutes each . Using the WCDMA network, it is possible to send and receive video clips and pictures even during a phone call and download rich content such as real-time music videos or television news.

The 7600 also features MP3 playback - up to 50 minutes of music can be saved on the internal memory - and data can be transferred to the unit via infrared, Bluetooth or USB connection as well as via the Internet.
