Samsung's swinging X830 music phone heads to Europe

Mobile phones

Slider phones are just so yesterday – if you want to be ahead of the crowd, you’ve got to swing – with a phone like Samsung’s X830 music phone.

The swing aspect quickly transforms this miniature to gadget from pocket MP3 player to cool mobile phone. Not sure you’ll look all that cool taking a call with it, but your Bond-style phone should impress the office. The phone has 1GB of storage, which you can boost by card. Formats supported are MP3, WMA and OGG and once you’ve loaded in your music, you can browse it easily by artist, title or album. The GSM phone also features a 1.3MP camera.

Already available in Korea, the X830 should be available in the UK around October. Prices and networks to be confirmed.
