We decided to continue our Market Update series that will inform you on the latest (and greatest) mobile phones that hit the stores on a weekly basis. From now on you can expect our market reports every Friday. As previously noted, unfortunately, we won't be able to comment local availability in stores near you, as well as on carrier-subsidized prices.
The Samsung F210 is the first to go public this week. It builds on the already announced at CeBIT 2007 Samsung F200 by adding a 2 megapixel camera, a smoother design and 1GB of integrated memory. The memory is expandable through the microSD memory card slot (unlike Samsung X830) and is more than enough to get you started (unlike Samsung F200 with its meager 5 (read five) MB). The display of this baby is 1.46" 262K color TFT one with a resolution of 128 x 220 pixels. Currently, it can be found online for around EUR 280 (USD 400).
The Eten glofiish X800 is a Windows Mobile 6.0 Pro based PocketPC which impresses with 2.8" VGA display, integrated GPS receiver and Wi-Fi support. It also has quad-band GSM networks support and HSDPA for fast data transfers. The FM radio and the 2 megapixel camera are the other highlights of the device. The device is somewhat compact in size and weight and runs on a powerful 500 MHz Samsung processor, but the camera has no auto focus capability, there is no USB host feature and hardware QWERTY keyboard. Currently, it can be found online for around EUR 450 (USD 660).
The Samsung M610 is another product of the South Korean company. It's a budget-oriented GSM handset but as usual for Samsung it comes with stereo Bluetooth support and a microSD memory card slot. It also has a 65K color CSTN display with a resolution of 128 x 160 pixels. It's equipped with a VGA camera and FM radio. It has tri-band GSM support, but GSM 900 is not among them. Currently, it can be found online for around EUR 140 (USD 200).
The Sony Ericsson Z320 is a stylish clamshell with tri-band GSM/GPRS network support. It comes with a 1.3 megapixel camera, 12 MB internal memory, but unfortunately there's no memory card slot. Other than that, it has a 1.8 inch main 65K color TFT display with 128 x 160 pixels resolution. The external display is capable of displaying only system icons. Currently, it can be found online for around EUR 100 (USD 150).
