Samsung cell phones
New Samsung cell phones launched at Mobile Fair in Barcelona Samsung brought along a large line of new cell phones to the GSMA Mobile World Congress 2009 in Spain. We counted no less than 26 new cell phones. Although they do not all target the same region, it remains an impressive figure. The new assortment of Samsung cell phones was showcased in the back of the Samsung Mobile booth in Barcelona. A more public presentation was prepared only for the 'eye catchers'. This meant a lot of attention for the Samsung Beat DJ, a cell phone that provides (Ice Power) sound of Samsung in corporation with Bang & Olufsen. The Samsung Beat DJ is a cell phone specifically aiming at the music freak who is also design-sensitive. |
Samsung UltraTOUCH cell phone
The new Samsung UltraTOUCH is a slider cell phone with a touch screen and Windows Mobile operating system. Featuring a 2.8 inch AMOLED touchscreen monitor with a resolution of 240x400 pixels and 16 million colors, the Samsung UltraTOUCH cell phone guarantees high quality reproduction. The 3G cell phone sports a keyboard that slides open, Bluetooth 2.1, 80MB internal memory with expanding possibilities up to 16GB via a microSD card slot.
8 Megapixel cell phone
You will need this amount of storage capacity if you use the digital camera function a lot. 8 Megapixels of resolution combined with a dual LED flash and other typical camera features such as face and smile detection certainly add to the digital photo experience. As soon as we receive a Samsung UltraTOUCH test sample, we will publish a full Samsung UltraTOUCH review, followed by a high resolution sample photo gallery.
Samsung Omnia HD
The Samsung Omnia HD cell phone also had a prominent role at the GSMA World Mobile Congress. The Samsung Omnia is a sales hit in many different countries, and hopes are high for the new Samsung Omnia HD (High Definition). Mobile High Definition is a trend that found its way into cell phones as well as digital compact and DSLR Cameras.
High Definition cell phone
Question remains how this will affect the energy use and the performance of the cell phone. We know for a fact that the size of the Samsung Omnia HD handset has increased slightly. As soon as we receive a Samsung Omnia HD test sample, we will publish a full Samsung Omnia HD review, followed by a high resolution Omnia HD picture gallery.

The Samsung MBP200 sports a built-in LCD monitor of 2.2 inch with a resolution of 320x240 pixels.
