Samsung Soulb Phone

Samsung today hoped to capitalize on the success of the Soul with the Soulb, its latest candybar phone. It drops the touchscreen keypad of the original slider but compensates with an ultra-thin design and media features: the handset is just 0.39in thick but still finds room for a 3-megapixel camera with an LED flash, 1GB of built-in flash memory, and a microSD slot for extra storage. The phone also brandishes a newly designed user interface and allows for basic on-device video editing.

The Soulb is being positioned as Samsung's next mainstream fashion phone and will ship in five colors ranging from a safer gray to pink and violet. A quick launch is planned for Germany, where the phone will be available from early June; the company expects a much wider launch that should include nearly all of the world. North America isn't included in the list for the current version of the phone, which lacks 850MHz band support for its calling and 3G Internet access.
