Samsung's S3600 sticks to the metallic basics

Chris Ziegler

We're still trying to get used to this crazy one-letter, four-digit naming convention Samsung has suddenly decided to move to after countless years of the SGH / SCH / SPH convention, but at least they're easing the transition a bit with production that don't suck immensely -- at least, not for their price range. Meet the S3600, an admittedly low-end flip on account of its non-3G radio, meager 30MB of onboard memory, and 1.3-megapixel camera that still manages to pull off an upscale look with a liberal application of brushed metal. The spec sheet rounds out nicely with an FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0, and microSD expansion -- but the nicest feature of all might be the price, which looks like 4,000 Czech crowns (about $220) unlocked when it launches next month.
