Samsung GT-M2310 Music Phone Spotted

Two new music phones have been seen out in the wild recently, namely the Samsung M2310 and Samsung M2710.  Whilst the Samsung M2310 appears to be a flip version of the Samsung M2710 slider both feature as slimmed down versions of the recently announced Samsung M7600 Beat DJ and Samsung M6710 Beat Disc.

Offering similar features, the Samsung M2310 is equipped with an MP3 music player, dedicated music button, FM radio, 3.5mm audio headset, microSD memory card slot, stereo bluetooth, GPRS, EDGE and Mobile Tracker application.  A digital camera has been mentioned but the pixel size is not yet known and nor do we know if 3G will be on the cards for the Samsung GT-M2310 either.  Neither of these handsets have been officially announced yet by the Korean manufacturer but rumour has it that though that they will be headed for Brazil.

Very little else is known about their specs for the time being or indeed their availability or even pricing but we are hoping to be able to post more details on them within the next couple of weeks.  If the Samsung M3200 and Samsung M3510 specs are anything to go by though, the Samsung M2310 should be a solid addition to the growing Samsung BEAT range.

New Samsung M2710 Music Phone Spotted

Following in the footsteps of the recently announced Samsung M7600 Beat DJ and M6710 Beat Disc is the music orientated Samsung M2710 slider.  Although not yet officially announced the Samsung M2710 is one of two new handsets developed by Samsung for their new Beat Edition range and both the Samsung M2710 and M2310 models feature key elements that can be found in their more feature heavy siblings the Samsung M7600 and Samsung M6710 Beat Disc

Whilst the Samsung M2310 sports a clamshell design the Samsung M2710 with is sliding form factor offers up a 2 mega pixel camera, MP3 music player with dedicated keys, stereo FM radio and 3.5mm audio headset jack.  To ensure there’s plenty of room for all your favourite tracks the Samsung M2710 comes with a microSD card slot for additional expansion.

Both models feature Mobile Tracker so in the event that your phone gets stolen, which is an absolutely nightmare at the best of times, or even lost, you can at least be rest assured in the knowledge that you can track your phones location.

Other features of the Samsung M2710 include stereo Bluetooth, GPRS/EDGE and built-in accelerometer sensor but there’s no confirmation yet as to whether or not 3G connectivity will be included in the spec.

There’s still no word either on pricing or availability but it looks as though both models are headed for Brazil but until an officially announcement we will have to wait with baited breath.

The world’s first transparent phone, the LG GD900’s  transparent keypad is made from tempered glass and doubles as a touch pad.  The phone itself sports multi-touch input and comes with a gesture control feature that offers a much wider level of control and makes this phone far more intuitive.   Also incorporated into the design of the LG GD900 is haptic feedback technology and support for handwriting recognition plus it features a built-in accelerometer sensor and proximity sensor.

In addition to this the handset will run LG’s new S-Class 3D user interface which is a huge plus in our books.  Sharing similar functionality to that of the LG KM900 Arena, the GSM LG GD900 offers up some really cool features such as ’emotional white lighting in the dark’, an intuitive touch wheel, a 3 inch WQVGA LCD wide full touchscreen and 3D graphics that will astonish and astound.

The LG GD900, or as otherwise refered to as the LG GD900 Crystal, is so intuitive that even by writing ‘M’ on the touchscreen will initiate the MP3 music player and to control the volume all users need do is draw a circle.  There is even a specially designed mouse mode for enhanced web browsing.

Its futuristic design will no doubt offer huge appeal and the extensive list of highly advanced features and slim dimensions have all played their part in putting the LG GD900 in a class of its own.  Due to hit the shelves as early as May, Europe and Asia will be amongst the first to get their hands on this phone.

Samsung S7220 AKA Samsung Lucido on O2 Deals uK

The release of this new Samsung phone means that firstly we have to clear up some confusion, we first reported that the S7220 was to be called the Eltz, however it seems that the manufacturer changed this just days before release and named it the Lucido – as if eltz was not hard enough to remember!

The Samsung Lucido is the exact same phone, just a different model name for the UK, it has now been launched on O2 pay monthly contract deals in the UK with further network releases expected over the coming days.

The Samsung S7220 has been released alongside the Samsung Tocco Ultra and offers a very similar finish to the external casing with a brushed metal effect, although not as feature packed as the Tocco Ultra the Samsung Lucido is looked upon as the candy-bar cousin and demand a far cheaper price tag.

The Samsung S7220 or Lucido has finally arrived as a contract phone. This Samsung has had more name changes than Prince. It also goes by the Eltz, S7220 Ultra b or Ultra Classic. Now Samsung have kept the style nice and simple it is a great looking bar shape measuring only 11.8mm thick and weighing only 90g, and what Samsung have managed to put into such a small body is incredible.

 

The Samsung S7220 has great metal detailing giving it a quality feel. The keypad on the S7220 is fantastically spaced out so even sausage fingers like me have no trouble texting with the phone. The Samsung Lucido has all the latest gadgets. EDGE, 3G, Bluetooth and HSDPA technologies are all present to provide a great quality of service as well as a speedy one especially when on the web.

The entertainment on this phone is fantastic. A great 5 MP camera with autofocus and Samsung have really gone up a notch in their music players lately, the Lucido being no different being able to support MP3, AAC, WMA files and a FM radio. The S7220 will also let you use your MP3’s as ringtones easy as pie. And with the microSD card slot you can have up to 16GB of memory to store it all on.
