Samsung Slash revealed
Samsung's new Slash slider phone has shown up on Virgin Mobile's website on Friday with a few details on specs. The mid-level phone will feature a camera, Bluetooth wireless connectivity for headsets and other devices and an integrated web browser. The speakerphone function will also allow for voice dialing, while the full color screen of yet-unspecified resolution will display downloadable graphics and the available library of Virgin's mobile games.
The Slash will be capable of using MP3 tracks for ring tones, although the Real Music ringtones will have to be downloaded via Virgin's paid service. Hard numbers aren't available apart from a talk time of 3.5 hours.
Virgin Mobile's newest addition will have the option to switch the menus to read in Spanish.
No pricing or concrete release dates have been announced for the Slash.
