it is fantastic phone and i have started saving my pocket money to get this phone because this will not only work as mobile but also as a digital camera
This phone is not "crap" to anyone who thinks it is, and the camera is not the only good feauture of it. GSM arena did not give the full specifications of the phone, the only good feature they did mention was the camera. The CCD camera and high-sensitivity flash allow the user to take the same quality pictures one gets from a top-end digital camera. Similar to Samsung's premium grade camera phones, the S250 can also function as a camcorder. The 92MB onboard memory can store up to 100 minutes of video (320x240), and a 32MB auxiliary memory is included as a standard feature. The shutter speed is as fast as 1/1,000 th of a second, allowing the user to film beautiful landscapes as well as subjects as close as 10 cm. The S250 can be connected to a TV to display video during shooting or to show footage that has already been recorded in the mobile phone. The S250 comes with a unique "stretch" design, reminiscent of the futuristic phones seen in the movie The Matrix . The high-quality camera lens and LCD remain covered and protected when the phone is closed, and when it is stretched open, the product has the feel of a regular digital camera. Samsung has also set a new standard in mobile phone display technology. Until now, mobile phones had been equipped with LCDs capable of 262,000-color resolution. The S250 boasts a QVGA TFD-LCD Thin Film Diode-Liquid Crystal Display) that has previously been adapted only for top-end TVs and desktop monitors. The display can reproduce 16 million colors, over 60 times the color compared to existing mobile phone displays, all the hues found in nature; thus, QVGA resolution has been referred to as “true color.” Samsung has also taken voice recognition to a higher level by introducing text-to-speech (TTS) conversion. Now the user can listen to incoming text messages or the prepared "to-do" list rather than having to read them. The S250 supports high-image-quality games and 3D sound effects. If a call is received in the middle of a game, the user can restore the game later and resume play. Other advanced functions in the S250 include an MP3 player, mobile banking capability and 64-polyphonic sound. Samsung cooperated with the Japan-based Asahi Pentax, one of the most respected camera lens providers in the world, to develop a camera module customized for the mobile phone. And to anyone who says they have this phone or that they are getting it, i highly doubt it unless you live in south koreaa. This phone was specifically designed for samsung's retail service provider "ANYCALL". The phone is not even a GSM phone, it runs on a CDMA2000 1x network. I dont know why this phone is even on GSMARENA because it shouldn't be.
W0w this has more megapixels than the digicam that i have right now.
this phone is simply crap.only the camera is good n everything is pathetic
this mobile is big though.not at all smart sorry samsung must be doing hell lot of functions butnot a smart phone
this phone shouldnt be on gsmarena, its a CDMA phone and it only works and is only for retail sale in SOUTH KOREA.
this phone is great. It has all the features that i need for a phone.
that camera can save us from carrying big digital cameras
why is everyone talking like this phone doesn't exist?? HOW COME I HAVE THIS PHONE !!!! am i some kind of millionair??? i bought this phone from EBAY for $550 and it works so good, its not even funny. it is unlocked so it works with my T-mobile. this phone DOES exist and is for sale at a lot of places.
saw this samsung's new baby it looks okkk but what is this 5mp camera i dont understand y wwud nebody on this earth will carry a camera with this mobile when is it available
samsung p860 was never ment to become alive on gsm market-fools!
get out of the cellular phone market!
come on! just like your digital cameras suck, the same way your cell. phones suck!
all samsung phones have either reception issues or sound quality issues!
on top of that you are the only company that announce phones that never come to live or to be releases (commercial gimmick!)
what a scam!
Thats only for show off well samsung tat is not releasing?????????????????????
it may not be official yet, but I've heard rumors that this baby had been cancelled in 'O5 already.
No surprise there... just forget about it, it ain't coming.
OOPS, don't know why I used your name in the "name" box below...certainly not intentional.
LOL, I know. I'm thinking exactly the same.
It's the same with Motorola, they take ages to release the damn things and if it sounds too good to be true...
Then it probably was too.
I'm sure it'll be cancelled in the next month or two.
The only hope there is left is to wait for the LG equivalent, maybe Samsung is waiting to compete with them on an equal basis. But that would not really make much sense, in a Marketing perspective...
