Samsung Miniskirt Season 2

Turning its updates into a yearly refresh, Samsung on Monday released the Miniskirt Season 2, also known as the C225. The slider phone replaces the original C220 and adds a handful of features in addition to a suite of new colors. The 2-megapixel camera is one of the few to provide a smile detection for portraits; also new to the phone is haptic (vibration) feedback from the touch-sensitive buttons and a feature that finds meet-ups in SMS messages and adds them as calendar events.

The phone continues to be one of Samsung's thinnest sliders at 0.43 inches and provides mapping through GPS as well as English dictionary features for travelers. Samsung has just released the phone in Korea for $451; there are no immediate plans for a release in the US, though the original version of the Miniskirt is already available in the country as the Helio Mysto and may receive a minor update as a result.
