CeBIT 2006: Samsung's higlights including ten mega pixel camera phone
Here’s the quick heads up from Samsung as to what it intends to unveil today at Cebit. Obviously we’ll give you more details on the products as we get them.
The SCH-B600 the world’s first 10 megapixel camera phone – obviously only for Korea at the moment and aimed at professionals rather than happy snappers.
The SGH-i310 8GB HDD embedded music smartphone – as we predicted this last week. Let’s hope they have solved the battery life issue which prevented the otherwise excellent hard disk endowed i300 from being a must buy.
The world’s first large capacity flash-based jukebox player – the YP-Z5 which is an ultra-slim, lightweight flash-memory player and puts DNSe 3D sound (whatever that is) in the palm of consumers’ hands. Samsung hasn’t said yet what its capacity is.
