Finally, some fresh news regarding Samsung’s F700 smartphone we saw back at 3GSM in February, and not just speculation such as whether it’ll be Armani-branded or not.
The slinky looking phone has been given a much easier name to remember it by, Croix. As you can probably remember from GCSE-level French, ‘Croix’ is French for ‘cross’, and as it’s got a four-directional touch input, so it’s not just a made-up pretentious name which has nothing to do with anything. Using a Flash user interface, it combines a slide-out QWERTY keyboard with a 5-megapixel camera and HSDPA connectivity. There are more official photos available, but bizarrely, none of them show off the HTC MDA-esque QWERTY keyboard. I wonder if that means anything…?
Still no word on when it’s due to come out, I don’t know how much longer I can wait, really. Hurry up, Samsung, or people might just cave in and buy the iPhone!
