Samsung S3500 introduced
Samsung is expected to bring out an entry-level sliding handset under its Anycall brand in Asian and European markets with the S3500. The quad-band GSM phone sports a 320x240 resolution screen and a couple of other basic features such as a 2-megapixel camera, built-in FM tuner and digital audio playback capabilities. Users will be able to transfer music files to the built-in 35MB of memory via a USB connection, but more can be added to the handset via a microSD memory card. The handset will also include a built-in browser and e-mail client.
Hinting at the possibility of the S3500's possible release in North America is an approval by the FCC and the handset's support of the 850MHz band, though no other detailed information is known, including pricing information or release dates for any market. [via UnwiredView]
