The touchscreen-packing QWERTY slider is said to be aimed at the “youth market”, and features a 3MP digital camera, Wi-Fi, 3G/HSDPA and quad band connectivity, GPS and a 3.5mm ear jack.

There’s also support for social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, and is even compatible with the iPlayer, letting “youths” catch BBC shows on the go.

“The Samsung Genio slide is the latest in our range designed specifically for the youth market,” said Mark Mitchinson, Vice President, Samsung Mobile UK & Ireland.

“We’ve enjoyed huge success with Genio touch and Genio qwerty and, as a hybrid of the two devices; we know it will be a hit with the target audience.”

You can pick up the handset here, free on either a two year £15 a month plan, or 18 month, £25 per month option.
