Samsung C268 clamshell

Newly launched in Hong Kong is the C268 phone by Samsung, distributed under its Anycall brand. The key to the clamshell is affordable simplicity, since all but the most universal features have been removed. It only operates on dual-band GSM, for instance, and the screen is limited to 65,000 colors. It does however have SMS messaging and an attractive interface, plus an abnormally long battery life -- Samsung estimates seven hours of talk-time and 390 hours (16 days) of standby. The C268 costs $790 Hong Kong dollars, or $99 US. [via Unwired View]
