Samsung B660 World Phone
Samsung continued its string of phone announcements by announcing a new flip phone under its Anycall name. Called the B660, B6600, or B6650 depending on the provider, the clamshell is one of the Korean company's few phones to revolve around faceplates. All of the front save for a small stripe down the center is covered by a removable front panel, which can be swapped out for either a conservative or an exotic look, ranging from silver to a denim print.
Much like yesterday's B680, the B660 is intended for the mainstream with a 1.3-megapixel camera, MP3 playback, and (in Korean form) DMB digital TV broadcasts. However, the company plans to expand the phone's use beyond its native country with releases in other regions. Specifics weren't released but will likely involve replacing or scrapping DMB support in favor of other standards. Click through for photos.
