Samsung E210 draws from lux phones for low-end

Samsung E210

Samsung Mobile today hoped to share its design improvements more evenly by revealing the E210, a mid-to-low-range clamshell. The device borrows the engineering from the more luxurious D830 to produce a minimalist body which is also relatively thin for the range at under 0.7 inches thick. The choice of black or blue bodies with chrome trim also lends style often missing from the price point. Technology is also stepped up versus most budget phones. A 1.3-megapixel camera replaces the more commonplace VGA camera and includes 15 frames per second video recording; Bluetooth and MP3 playback through a microSD slot also lift the phone above most economy devices.

Pricing is set to be relatively low for the features at roughly 150 Euros ($202). Release dates are unavailable but will likely be confined to Europe in the immediate future given the lack of 850MHz GSM support needed to cover all relevant North American cell providers. [via Unwired View]
