With Christmas just around the corner, demand for mobile phones is skyrocketing again. It’s certainly out there as one of the most in-demand holiday gifts. Parents, youngsters as well as young professionals are all saving up for the shiny new phone they can parade around just in time for Christmas.
Like most people, I’ve tried almost all cellphone brands. It was a long time ago since I’ve owned a Samsung. ’twas a slider phone to be exact. I had a great time being reacquainted with this brand again over the weekend. They had invited the media for an event launching three new phones of their Samsung Corby line which is geared for the youth and young professionals. They’re colorful, they’re sleek, they look hip and they’re all affordably priced, which is what matters most of all.
One thing that these phones have in common: they have feature sets which allow easy users easy access to their favorite networking sites. The communities application enable the capturing of photos and instant uploading to Facebook, Friendster, Flickr and other popular online sites.
Likewise, the multi IM feature allows contacts from different instant messaging portals like Google Talk and AIM to be pooled into one chat session. MP3 player and FM radio complete the whole bundle.
Anyway, am now the proud owner of a Samsung Corby B3410 (pictured above) due to the fact that I won this phone in the night’s raffle…. tee hee. Thanks Samsung! 😀 Both the B3410 and the Corby TXT (B3210) have QWERTY keypad, 2 mp camera, Bluetooth, EDGE and expandable memory via a microSD slot. Their prices range from only P6990 to P7590.
The high end of the line is the CorbyPRO (B5310) with 2.8″ QVGA full touch-screen, slide -out QWERTY keypad, 3.2 mp camera, Bluetooth, expandable memory and HSDPA at 7.2 mbps. Suggested retail price is only P11,990 and this will be available in January 2010.
