Samsung's two-way sliding SGH-B450 mobile phone

Mobile phones

Forget one-way slider phones, it seems like the next 12 months is going to be all about two-way sliding. Following on from the LG-KH1000 comes the Samsung SGH-B450, described by the company as a "free folder" phone.

The SGH-B450 can open up vertically (clamshell-fashion) but also horizontally. Details on the specification are thin, but Samsung says it will incorporate a DMB (Digital Multimedia Broadcasting) satellite TV receiver, along with a set of 3D games. Hardly surprising, with gaming and TV viewing sure to benefit from the landscape screen. It will also feature VibeTonz – customised vibration that Samsung has used previously on the E770 in the UK.

More specific details will be available if this phone reaches the UK in some form. It’s been launched with a price equivalent to £341.
