Samsung reminded us that there is more than smartphones out there. The company quietly released its Corby II feature phone this week in Europe. The phone is a successor to the popular Corby handset and offers some minor improvements on an already successful package.
The retail price of the Corby II will be €189. For this amount of money you will get, well, not much. The screen is 3.2" capacitive TFT with QVGA resolution (240 x 320 pixels). There is 26MB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. Photos can be taken with a fixed-focus 2MP camera.
The device runs on the latest TouchWiz UI with multitasking capabilities. Connectivity is covered with Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 (A2DP), standard microUSB port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Amazon.de currently has the Corby II listed at €135. You should keep in mind that for the same price, you can find a lower-end Android or Symbian device. Both the LG GT540 Optimus and the Sony Ericsson X8 run for about the same price point.
