Samsung E590

Samsung started its week with the introduction of a new camera-focused phone. The E590 boasts a 3.2-megapixel back camera with auto focusing as well as a half shutter and a panorama mode for stitching together landscape shots; the bar phone also includes a rare attachment for a bean bag mount to stabilize the body during formal portraits and similar shots. The phone itself also takes advantage of expert designer Jasper Morrison, according to the company. The creator lends his hand both to the phone's clean design as well as to a dual-sided set of side controls: one focuses exclusively on the phone, while the opposite end focuses on camera navigation.

Other elements of Samsung's better phones also make it into the E590, such as Bluetooth 2.0 and AAC/MP3 playback; storage is handled internally through 90MB of internal memory as well as a microSD slot for extra storage of movies, music, and videos.

Despite an appearance in an FCC filing that clears partial use in the US, the E590 in current form is intended primarily for Europe and southeast Asia, which will both receive the phone later this month. Pricing is unknown but models will include solid black or white.
