Samsung E890

Samsung has just made its initial release of the E890 in Singapore. The Korean cellphone maker says it borrows the touchscreen concept of many PDAs to save size and weight as well as simplify the user's experience: instead of a slide-out number pad, owners can dial numbers as well as control the phone as a whole by tapping the 2.3-inch screen itself. A pop-out stylus is included to preserve the screen, but the built-in sensors can also read less precise finger presses if necessary, Samsung notes. The phone is also multi-talented and caters to its mid-range audience with a 1.3-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.0, and EDGE support. Music is also playable in AAC or MP3 formats. The E890 can be had from cellphone carriers for $360 by itself or $298 when paired with a two-year service plan.
