Samsung shares Soul shipment secret

Carphone Warehouse bound

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

If you want to get down and boogie, then you’ll need plenty of soul. Luckily, this week Carphone Warehouse will be dolling out bucket loads of it - Samsung's Soul, that is.

Soul is the manufacturer’s latest handset, which it unveiled back in February - but without providing any shipping or pricing information.

Samsung's Soul: available this week from Carphone Warehouse

Samsung has now confirmed that Soul will be available this week, exclusively though Carphone Warehouse. The handset can only be picked up in silver so far, but will be free on most pay monthly contracts.

A Magic Touch keypad allows the sliderphone to display different button icons according to the application currently in use. When in music mode, for example, playback-related icons light up on the nav panel.

The Soul has a five-megapixel camera with face-detection and image-stabilisation technologies. Songs are pumped out through a digital power amplifier that uses technology from high-end audio equipment manufacturer Bang & Olufsen. Users also get HSDPA 3G data connections of up to 7.2Mb/s.
