Samsung Ultra Edition II

Spearheading Samsung's announcements are four phones in the new Ultra Edition II lineup -- click through for a variety of images. The professional end is represented by the U600, which has a metallic finish, a 3.2-megapixel camera, and music playback supporting MP3, WMA, and AAC/AAC+. Bluetooth 2.0 and USB 2.0 connections are present, as is a business card reader, and 60MB of memory with an added microSD slot. The U700 meanwhile is variant for wealthy consumers, adding HSDPA broadband, WMA-DRM audio, and playback of MPEG-4, Real and H.263 video formats. Sacrifices come in the form of a three-megapixel camera and 20MB of internal memory.

The U300 is similar to the U700 but drops a few noteworthy features, such as HSDPA, Real playback, and the microSD slot. This is compensated for somewhat with 70MB of memory, and unlike its more expensive brethren, built-in flash for the camera. The U100 is being positioned as "the world's slimmest handset," taking most of the features of the U300 and placing it in a candybar only 0.2 inches thick. Lost in the translation are flash, WMA-DRM and screen size, which shrinks from 2.2 inches to 1.93. All of the Ultra Edition II phones are expected to launch in Europe in the first quarter of this year.
