Samsung’s Tocco did rather well last year, but its touchscreen interface hasn’t been a hit with absolutely everyone. Since then, though, it’s released the Tocco Pro and today it’s launching the Tocco Lite in an attempt to widen the market that give it a try.
The Lite is very much just a downgrade of the original handset. For starters, there’s no mention of 3G connectivity, which in 2009 is rather surprising. The 5-megapixel camera has been downgraded to 3.2-megapixel, and the onboard memory is now just 50MB. That’s still upgradable via an SD card to 8GB.
Alongside the spec decrease, the price will have gone down too.
But Samsung hasn’t told us how much that’ll be just yet. I’ve emailed them. If they let me know, then you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll tell you, too. Samsung has confirmed that pricing and availability info is yet to be determined for this handset. Oh, and if you’re looking for a budget touchscreen, you could do worse than checking out Zara’s article on the subject from this morning.
