Samsung shows off new handsets
Samsung has gone on from strength to strength where cellphones are concerned, and this time their new line up will cater specifically for music lovers while attempting to offer an alternative to Sony Ericsson’s line of Walkman cellphones. This trio of handsets will place more weight on music compared to other phones from Samsung’s stable, and hopes to strike a balance between a cellphone and a music player. The three phones in question are the Samsung SGH-i450, the Samsung SGH-F330 and the Samsung SGH-F210. For more details on each individual handset, kindly head on after the jump.
The Samsung SGH-i450 will occupy the position of top dog among the three, boasting an amplifier that was developed by high-end audio specialists Bang & Olufsen. This will definitely grab the attention of anyone around whenever you play back your favorite tunes, and chances are you won’t miss any more incoming calls in a crowded and noisy environment. The SGH-i450 will be powered by the Symbian S60 operating system and comes in a dual slider design format – sliding the handset up will activate the smartphone features, while sliding it downwards will see music player functions make an appearance on its 2.4″ LCD display. Unfortunately, the 35MB internal memory doesn’t do a music phone justice, but thankfully there is a microSD memory card slot that can hold up to another 4GB worth of music.
As for the SGH-F330, this is a HSDPA slider handset that comes with music control keys on both front and sides of the phone. Other features include a 2 megapixel camera, 24MB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot, all packed into a form factor that measures just 13.5mm thin. Last but not least, the SGH-F210 features a swivel design where the bottom half reveals a keypad whenever the top part is swiveled around. It is equipped with an FM radio, 1GB of internal memory, and a microSD memory card slot. The SGH-i450, SGH-F330, and SGH-F210 will retail for approximately €360, €260 and €280 respectively when launched in Europe sometime this month.
