Samsung sends S60 slider phone West

Mobile application security vulnerability report

Samsung's new i400 slider phone may not set the world alight with its technical details, but with its curvy styling and Nokia-designed S60 software it sure is a looker.

Samsung SGH-i400 S60-based slider phone

Aimed at "young professionals", the tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE handset sports a 2.3in, 240 x 320, 262,144-colour display; two-megapixel camera; Bluetooth 2.0 with stereo audio; twin speakers; and a MicroSD slot.

The i400 runs the Symbian operating system with Nokia's familiar S60 user interface sitting on top of it. It's the second S60 phone Samsung has brought to market - the first was last year's i520 smart phone. By contrast, Samsung sees the i400 as a more mainstream product.

The 92g, 10 x 5 x 1.6cm i400 goes on sale in Russia in July, but will appear on store shelves in other European countries soon after, Samsung said.
