Samsung S480

Samsung today refreshed one of its better-selling designs using modern components: the S480 is based on the E700 that has sold 10 million plus units worldwide but upgrades its look and feature set. In addition to large internal and external LCDs, the camera steps up to 1.3 megapixels and is accompanied by Bluetooth as well as an MP3 player for music. The flip phone is also equipped with thoroughly modern wireless, linking to the Internet through EVDO and making wireless payments through supporting networks.

The S480 should be available soon in Korea, where it will launch with regional carrier SK Telecom. Compatibility of the CDMA-based phone with American providers Sprint and Verizon is likely, but a direct equivalent to the phone for Western audiences is unannounced and may arrive months later. via Akihabara]
