Don’t you just love quirky mobile phones? And they don’t come much more niche than the Samsung SCH-B570, a handset that doubles up as a golfing caddie.
The SCH-B570, launched yesterday in South Korea, features a hefty 8GB of storage for your music. But if playing a round is preferable to playing a tune, you’ll be pleased to hear that this phone has the information needed to play South Korea’s toughest golf courses, incorporating a GPS receiver which works out how far you are from the green, then suggesting an appropriate club. It also features DMB TV reception, motion-controlled games and, rather strangely, psychological tests.
Priced at the equivalent of between £443 and £499 (depending on contract), we hope to see it in the UK – but you get the feeling it’s a forlorn hope.
