Samsung outs Tocco Lite
Samsung will soon begin shipping its Tocco Lite touchscreen handset in the UK. With an emphasis on lowering the price of entry, the Lite utilizes the company's TouchWiz user interface and has GPRS/EDGE data network support. There are newfound social media features, including touchscreen shortcuts to Facebook, MySpace and YouTube from the 3-inch screen. Uploading photos taken by the Lite's 3.2-megapixel smile- and face-detecting camera to said social networking is also made simple, and users can tag photos of their contacts.
Storage comes via a microSD card slot, while the music listening experience is improved by Samsung's DNSe 2.0 technology. An FM radio is integrated as well, while an accelerometer is able to rotate photos and screens in relation to the handset's orientation.
The Samsung Tocco Lite will begin shipping to UK stores in mid-May, though prices have not been announced. [via Pocket-Lint]
