Early birds Samsung are releasing the handsets that were announced at the WMC in Barcelona last month. Two of the most keenly awaited gadgets – Samsung G810 and Samsung U900 Soul will start selling as early as 14th April.
The Symbian powered Samsung G810 is undoubtedly one of the most feature packed devices on the market. Armed with a 5 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom, Wi-fi and a 2.6" screen it has the guts to challenge Nokia N95 8GB’s reign in the high-end Symbian segment.
The Samsung U900 Soul, which we already previewed will also be available in a couple of weeks. Based on our impressions we are tempted to say that this is the next best-seller to arrive. Its camera with exceptional picture quality and the sleek design are bound to earn this feature phone its fair share of fans.
May will be the lucky month for a number of mobile phone fans, as no less than 6 handsets are expected to debut then.
Once again Samsung will be among the manufacturers in the spot light with two really interesting devices.
Samsung F400 will come to the market as early as 12th May. The nice looking dual slider features a 3 megapixel camera and 3G capabilities with HSDPA support. Samsung F400 will have enough people looking forward to it.
Next in line is the Samsung F480 which will be released on 19th May. We played with this little fella in Barcelona and it did manage to impress us. Looking like a more compact version of the Samsung F490 and having some of those Armani looks, Samsung F480 is a promising handset. We are yet to see if it can live up to the high expectations.
The other device by the American company is the Motorola RIZR Z10 – a Symbian UIQ smartphone. It has a 3 megapixel camera and a 2.2" 16M-color screen and comes in the rather rare kick-slider form factor.
The cameraphone lovers should be on the lookout come June. This is when Sony Ericsson C902 will become available. The latest member of the Cyber-shot family was already previewed. We are yet to see if will manage to replace the Sony Ericsson K850 in the hearts of Sony Ericsson fans.
The icing on the cake will come in August. Nokia’s next true powerhouse will hit the shelves. The Nokia N96 comes with such a load of features that simply listing them is a hard job. Therefore we will just point out the most important – a 5 megapixel camera, a DVB-H TV broadcast receiver and a 2.8" 16M-color display. The 16GB of internal memory are also worth nothing but it is not nearly completing the list of high-end goodies.
