Samsung F480 christened "Tocco" -- better than "Taco," we suppose

Chris Ziegler

Samsung's Armani-like F480 won't be known simply as the F480 when it floods the market; that'd be far too ordinary, apparently, so it's been assigned "Tocco," which it turns out is Italian for "Touch." That's an eminently appropriate name for a phone that relies this heavily on finger action thanks to the introduction of Samsung's all-new TouchWiz UI concept, and with 7.2Mbps HSDPA on board, there'll be plenty of touch-controlled browser use, we imagine. Pricing apparently has yet to be set, but we're pretty sure Italian names command some sort of premium over garden-variety letters and numbers.
