Getting the high-end G810
, F480, G400, and F400
out of the way, Samsung has (expectedly) rocked Mobile World Congress with a boatload of devices to fill every last segment of the market. Let's have a look, shall we?
- The i200 (pictured) is a relatively simple Windows Mobile 6.0 Standard candybar with a 2 megapixel cam, 3G data, microSD expansion, and the typical QVGA display. It should break below the €200 mark and will hit shelves in spring.
- The L170 is a thin candybar -- just 10.7mm -- that fills in the low end at a €175 asking price with a 2 megapixel camera when it launches in March.
- The J150 goes even further downmarket than the L170, but manages to squeeze its guts into a 9.9mm shell with Bluetooth, an FM radio, microSD slot, and a 1.3 megapixel camera for €125-130.
- The J700 is a relatively attractive slider with a 1.3 megapixel camera, 160 x 128 display, and microSD slot, while still staying on the low end at €130-140. It'll be available in March.
- The L770 kicks up the style factor a couple notches and throws UMTS into the equation, along with a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, and availability in a range of colors when it hits in April for €260-280.
- The E251 is a slider that'll ring a bell for many Samsung owners, looking a heck of a lot like the E250 it replaces. In fact, it's the same thing -- it just adds a dedicated music key. Whoopee! It'll be available for €120-130.
- The W350 is a mobile TV clamshell supporting DMB -- not a lot of good for DVB-H-loving Europe, but appropriate for South Korea. If you're cool with the 2.2 inch display, anyway. No word on release or pricing for this one.
- Speaking of DVB-H, the P960 is just such a device with a healthier 2.6 inch QVGA display, slider form factor, 3 megapixel camera, and support for picture-in-picture. This one apparently hasn't been blessed for release yet, and there's some debate as to whether it ever will be (yes, please).
More details on the whole range as we get it!
