Samsung announce two new youth mobile phones

Samsung-CorbySamsung Electronics Co. Ltd, a leading mobile phone provider, has rapidly followed the successful launch of the Samsung Corby (model: S3650) by announcing two new mobile phones designed around the Corby concept, which aims to deliver stylish devices to support the highly connected lifestyles of today’s younger mobile users.

The new Corby family devices, dubbed Samsung CorbyTXT and Samsung CorbyPRO, seek to further meet the varied needs of the youth market, while aligning with Samsung’s strategy of designing mobiles to match every lifestyle.

The two models are differentiated by key features, including messaging, multimedia entertainment and business functionality, but also deliver the original Corby’s trademarks of bold colours, pop-style contours and a curved form factor.

“The Corby family is in-line with our ongoing strategy of developing different mobiles to match every lifestyle,” said JK Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung Electronics’ Mobile Communications Division. “The focus with the original Corby and now with the Corby family has been to offer our consumers choice: choice over the colour of the handset, choice over how they stay connected and choice over the features and functionality that best suit their unique personalities and communications requirements.”

The Samsung CorbyTXT is a message-centric mobile for heavy texters, delivering easy-to-use SMS and IM (Instant Messenger) features as well as intuitive social media uploading functionality. The CorbyTXT also offers a full QWERTY keyboard on the face of the phone.

Quick launch buttons on the front of the handset provide fast access to key features including a music player, camera and messaging application. A 3.5mm earphone jack allows owners to use their own earphones and, like the original Samsung Corby, CorbyTXT comes with brightly-coloured fashion jackets and changeable battery covers including a simple black one and a second with a bold graphic design.

The Samsung CorbyTXT will be available in most European countries by the end of September.

The Samsung CorbyPRO is a hybrid slider which takes the cutting edge design of the original Samsung Corby and adds a full, slide out QWERTY keyboard.

The slide out QWERTY keyboard provides its owners with a finger-friendly messaging and emailing experience without sacrificing the style of the original Corby. It also combines the features business users demand with a variety of entertainment and multimedia capabilities, all delivered in a stylish design. Features include push email services, conversational SMS and access to Facebook and MySpace.
