Samsung confirms 3G mid-range phone duo

Samsung W2700 and W2900

Samsung's Anycall label today launched a pair of phones tailored for faster wireless without driving prices up through extra features. The company is first confirming the W2700 (pictured at middle), also known as the W270; the device includes an HSDPA modem for connecting at broadband-level speeds and includes a front camera for video calls, but uses a relatively modest 1.3-megapixel camera and a small external OLED display for checking caller ID. Software is nonetheless strong, according to Samsung, with the industry-standard backed up by support for Microsoft Office files and a dictionary. It should be available now in Korea for $430 as a stand-alone device in black or white, but may appear in a US equivalent in coming months.

Also on offer is the W2900 (shown in black), a slider equivalent to the W2700 that offers a slightly smaller 2-inch screen (versus 2.3 inches for the W2700) but also a more compact shape for otherwise identical features. It should be available at the same time as the flip-phone equivalent and will also reach the same price, though its support for networks beyond Korea is unknown. [via Akihabara]
