After a long while since Samsung Beat has started leaking information, the phone has been finally announced for a release with T-Mobile. The low-end music phone should soon be available in this operator's stores.Samsung
Beat is a
clamshell that brings a simple and modest design, but also includes one colorful feature that also brings out the fact that it is actually a music phone. The external speaker is bright green, quite unusual, as orange and white have been used until now to stand for great quality sound. The handset also includes some easy access buttons that make it extremely comfortable to handle the playlist without even having to take the phone out from the pocket.
The 40 MB of internal memory will be completed through a microSD card that will increase the maximum amount of data storage space. The phone will ship at T-Mobile with an additional 1 GB card preloaded with songs from Anisha Nicole and Natalie Williams. Samsung Beat also aha a 1.3 megapixel camera that will impress no one with its captures. Moreover, the clamshell also comes with Bluetooth connectivity, which should prove to be pretty useful for placing hands-free calls and listening to music.
The great advantage that this handset has to bring is that it is a low end phone, which also means a lower price, although it brings performances close to those of more evolved such devices. "The Samsung Beat is ideal for consumers who want advanced music
features and mobile capabilities along with functionality and affordability", said Pete Skaryznski, senior vice president at Samsung.Samsung Beat
is available exclusively at select T-Mobile retail stores and online at the operator's website. The price that the phone will come for has not been revealed up to this point.
