Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Sunday 5th, August 2007

One of the phones introduced was the Samsung SGH-U600, also known as the Samsun Ultra Edition 10.9. The Samsung U600 is a mobile phone that appears at first glance to fulfil all the wishes of the average mobile phone user. Approximately 8% of the profits return to R&D so that Samsung can continually put new, innovative phones on the market. The Samsung U600 is a slider phone equipped with a 3.2 Megapixel autofocus digital camera with flash, an MP3 player and a microSD card with extendable memory and some touch sensitive keys.

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Monday 2nd, October 2006

The Samsung booth drew quit a lot of attention and especially the new NV-series were quite appealing to a lot of the visitors. Of course the new 10 Megapixel Samsung GX10 made people curious and a lot of them wanted to find out what the deal is between Samsung and Pentax. Somehow it surprised me to see that Samsung did not introduce a real 100% Samsung-only DSLR. This new model seems to be the first end-result of the cooperation between Samsung and Pentax and we were promised that we may expect more to come…

Samsung SGH-X820 review

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Friday 22nd, September 2006

The Samsung P300 was both innovative and successful, but now Samsung has now gone a step further and taken the lead with the Samsung SGH-X820, which at 6.9 mm is the slimmest phone in the world. I wouldn't be surprised if other manufacturers go down this path and manage to spur Samsung on to even greater achievements. You cannot believe how thin the Samsung X820 is until you have held it. Next to the slim design, Samsung has managed to boost the X820 with a 2 Megapixel digital camera, with a maximum photo resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels. I tried the Samsung SGH-X820 out for a while and will discuss its functions and characteristics in the following mobile phone review.
