Samsung quietly serenades 'super 3G' music phone

F330 debuts

Build a business case: developing custom apps

IFA 07 Samsung has already launched a whole heap of mobile phones this year, and while most of the handsets it had on display at IFA in Berlin today saw light of day way back at 3GSM in March, one phone did catch our eye.

Samsung's F330: iPod-u-like

Say hello to the SGH-F330 music phone, a slider with cool white styling and a dedicated music-key cluster that's almost iPod-like in its clean lines. It has 1GB of on-board song storage - there's a Micro SD card slot for more - and a radio for when you tire of your own tunes. It'll play MPEG 4 video on its 2.1in, 240 x 320, 262,144-colour display too.

Samsung's F330: HSDPA-capable

It's a 3G phone - the hard-to-see front-facing video call camera's in the top right of the picture - and has 3.6Mbps HSDPA download technology on board too. There's a two-megapixel camera on the back. It should come as no great surprise that the F330 is fitted out with Bluetooth and wireless stereo support.
