Hands-on with Samsung’s GSM line for 2008

Hands-on with Samsung’s GSM line for 2008
At the Mobile World Congress 2008 in February, Samsung announced a large part of its annual phone line for the European market. Today we have the chance to get our hands on most of them. As you can see, two of the most interesting models (the Soul and the F480) are missing here, since we had their exclusive previews during the event itself.





F490 is similar to the F700, but is slimmer (lacks the side-sliding QWERTY) and has 5-megapixel camera. It runs the same Croix interface for good or for bad.



G810 is the Symbian-running successor of the G800. Now it is not only a cameraphone (5-megapixel, 3x optical zoom, face recognition), but also a smartphone, with GPS and WiFi. It is an all-in-one device that will try to compete with the successful Nokia N95.





I780 is a WM6 Professional smartphone with full QWERTY and a slim profile. It tries to be as feature rich, as the rival models from other manufacturers, but packs all this in a very pretty and small body.


F400 is a music-centric slider that can open in both directions, in order to reveal a Bang&Olufsen branded speaker. Once this is done, the media interface is opened, turning the phone into a music player.


L770 is simple, yet stylish. It will occupy the mid-level and will attract with its Ultra-like shape and different color variants.


Expect our previews with more information and pictures soon!

The M800isn't on the list. If you didn't jump to conclusions like a jackass know-it-all, read before you think you know everything.
