Samsung s60 SmartPhone

I had been waiting a long time for the S60 cellphone from Samsung (Actually from anyone except Nokia) and I am sure many other Mobile phone freaks have been doing the same. The waiting is now finished as Samsung has announced the i7110 which is a 12.9mm thick Smartphone running Symbian S60 3rd Edition, Feature Pack 2 operating system with a 2.6-inch AMOLED display. Hopefully it will provide an amazing unboxing experience like the Samsung Omnia.

The Samsung i7110 has a 5-Megapixel camera with autofocus, smile-shot, blink-shot, LED flash and a secondary camera up front for video calls (Subject to Network Support). The i7110 has 3G HSDPA (900/2100MHz) and quadband GSM/EDGE together with WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 and GPS.

Samsung’s new i7110 cellphone will be showcased for the first time at the Symbian Smartphone Show in London on Oct. 21st – 22nd. The GPS on the i7110 can be used for both navigation and photo geotagging and the handset comes with pedestrian navigation for ten cities in Western Europe. Geesung Choi, President of Samsung’s Telecommunications Network Business, said: “The introduction of I7110, Samsung’s new Symbian OS-based smartphone, is a testament of our strategic focus on the open OS phone portfolio. With a strong partnership with Symbian and the increased momentum in the smartphone market, Samsung will continue to offer a wide selection of mobile phones meeting the needs and lifestyles of today’s consumers.”

This new Samsung I7110 will be available in Russia starting November 2008 and will soon be introduced in additional markets.

The phone offers an 8-way optical mouse to maximize the easiness of mobile browsing. It also features 50MB of internal memory and a SDHC-supported micro SD slot, allowing users to store various digital contents up to 16GB. The smartphone’s 1,200 mAh battery can facilitate up to 11 hours of talk time and extended multimedia experience.
