Samsung's credit card thin SGH-P300 lands in UK

Mobile phones

Yesterday it was Motorola, today it is Samsung’s turn to grab the mobile spotlight. It has launched no fewer than five mobiles for the European market two of which are 3G models.

The one likely to get all the attention is the SGH-P300, which is basically Samsung’s attempt to out skinny the Moto RAZR. It is 8.9mm thick, or is that thin? Yet Samsung has managed to pack a 1.3 mega pixel camera with flash, music player and video recording capabilities.

Looks a bit like a calculator though…

The 3G-ers, the SGH-Z510 and SGH-Z540  look pretty decent too mixing small (for 3G handsets) frames with the usual full whack of features. Both tout a 1.3 mega pixel camera and 4x digital zoom, video telephony, real-time video streaming and video messaging.

The SGH-Z510 has a very cool looking 2.2-inch QVGA screen display and includes MP3 playback, while the SGH-Z540 is aimed at the fashion conscious buyer (aren’t we all?) and sports a similar set of features as well as Bluetooth and storage of a pretty impressive  150MB.

Samsung also debuted the SGH-D800, a 14.9mm slim slide-up phone with a 1.3 mega pixel camera, document viewer, Bluetooth, PictBridge, and TV-out, and the slightly chubbier SGH-D820, another slide-up phone. It features a wide (2.12-inch) and high resolution (QVGA) LCD screen and 1.3 mega pixel camera.

All will be available in European stores before the end of the year.
