Wow the Beat looks interesting. I think it's the first complete music bar phone from Samsung. I like the back lighting.

Damn Good! Congrats Samsung ... I knew you were the best ...

If they go on like that, time is not far that Nokia will lag behind in Sales ...

and now, even Symbian in on Samsung ... So, What's the problem?

Are you trying to say all Nokias has better display or comes with expandable memory slot?? Do you even know why Nokia sale that much low-end phones? Nokia makes money at the low end because of its super-efficient manufacturing systems. They have invested hundreds of millions of dollars building distribution systems and networks of retailers in developing countries.They don't sale because of their features as you claim. It takes time to reach in that point. Samsung is going in right direction.

Here is a article for you. Read on. have a good day.

it's common thing for low-end handsets.

and FYI both phones that i've mentioned above is not even released yet.

you nokia fans are, either blind, or stupid...
cant compare any samsung with nokias...
this are low budget phones, if you compare this with low end nokias, (6085 for example) then you will see...
or if u want to compare high tec phones, compare ANY N series phone with innov8, and then youll see

wow! samsung is going backwards in time, standard low end handset has a 2mp camera, but VGA, wow!
They took the F480 and made it dual, 4 of the other models already exist in the Samsung lineup since a few years back, all they did was probably "now we added a volume button as well" or something. Thank god the Samsung Innov8 is coming out, or would have thought that they lost their mind.

let them realize what they have done.....

Also, sony and ericsson will soon be separated from each other if they continue to have less sales... And that's sad for some people but I think it's better because Sony can now put all their efforts in putting all their hightech stuffs on their phones......

I hope that samsung work hard on their music player software. At the moment it is difficult to create playlists and when playing "All" songs it is laughable and incredibly annoying that it will include your ringtones!!
