Samsung CorbyPRO available on Vodafone UK as Genio Slide - read the full textGenio in the Queen's English means Corby - and now the Samsung B5310 CorbyPRO or rather Samsung Genio Slide is up and selling on the Vodafone UK site. With slide-out QWERTY and Fashion Jackets, the Genio Slide is a trendy capable texter for people on a budget. The Samsung Genio Slide or B5310...

A very capable phone considering its price - just £140 with Vodafone PAYG includes £10 topup. Resistive touch screen is surprisingly responsive, however onscreen keyboard is disappointing. The phone has HSDPA, GPS, WiFi... good stuff, Samsung.

What is with these multiple name changes by everyone who markets a phone? The consumer has no idea what phone he is getting unless he delves deep into the phone mags to find the true identity. What if Wal-Mart, Sears, Target, et al, changed the names of all of their products to their own names? How confusing would that be?

In Thailand, it is called as "Candy Pro". Actually all "Corby" series are called as "Candy"

(Coby means crushed neck in Thai)

World stunned as no new Samsung phones released for 19 second period. Millions awaited with bated breath as the interval between new Samsung phones being announced stretched a dizzying 19 seconds yesterday. Religious and cultural leaders from all over the world appealed for calm whilst scientists studied the reasons for this inexplicable delay. Samsung management later apologised and said that PR manager Chun Kee Won had been fired for taking an extra 30 seconds on his lavatory break, thereby delaying the release of the 8 new phones pencilled in for that time period. Samsung Directors said that to make up for the delay, they would release details of an extra 864 phones today, slightly up from the daily average.
