Samsung shows its Soul
The Samsung Soul is the successor of the company’s Ultra line and more precisely to the U600. The cold product number has been replaced by a poetical name making the device more human. The Soul is a slim slider using the same style as its predecessor. The innovations here start with the 5-megapixel camera added on the back of the phone. It has auto focus and face detection. We note the presence of a touch D-pad, instead of a regular one. Soul adapts to its owner and by using the phone’s "Magical Touch" technology, the navigation indicators on the pad change, according to the current mode, preferred by the user. For example if you are browsing the web, icons used to navigate through Internet pages will appear. When the radio is turned on, the tuning buttons will appear etc. The phone offers three graphic interface options for the users, allowing them to create their own skins also. It is a quad-band/HSDPA 7.2Mbps, with a microSD slot and support for mobile blogging / RSS reader. We will take a closer look at the Samsung Soul in Barcelona and we will share our experience with you.
