Samsung Soulb is slim metal candybar

Samsung Soulb is slim metal candybar
Soulb is not a spelling mistake, but Samsung’s name for its slim candy-bar with a brushed pattern metallic body. Actually, its name is formed from Soul-bar, as it is another phone in the Sprit of Ultra series, after the Soul U900, which we reviewed recently.

It is a 0.38 inches (9.9mm) slim phone, which will be available in five color options (Soul Grey, Platinum Silver, Metallic Black, Soul Pink and Amethyst Violet), obviously using its appearance as a key feature. However, Samsung also touts its characteristics, including 1GB of memory (plus microSD slot), a 3-megapixel camera, FM radio, and a new user interface, which we are guessing, will be similar to the Soul slider.

Samsung Soulb will be first available in Germany in early June, but after that will launch in the rest of Europe and other regions. As it is a tri-band GSM without 850 MHz, it is not a U.S.-friendly device.

Soulb was first noticed in April, modeled as the Samsung SGH-U800.

Ooooh! Want! Want! This is the first candybar phone I've seen that's smaller (although a few mm wider) than my old Sanyo SCP-6200. Too bad it's not US.

All of the awesome phones are non-USA :P Only thing that's ever made me wish I was born somewhere else.

Looks like a Shine candybar (KE770) copy really, Samsung should stop copying (we all have seen it, don't deny). They really need more unique and original phones, like the G600 and U600.
