Samsung's Tocco Ultra Edition is its 2009 flasghip phone

Designed as the successor to the existing Tocco – which Samsung’s claimed was the UK’s best-selling contract phone in the second half of 2008 – the latest model differs from most modern flagship phones in that it has both a 2.8in touchscreen display and a slide-out keyboard.

The autofocus 8Mp rear-mounted camera supports face detection and geo-tagging. Video can be snapped at 30f/s and on-board editing software allows you to trim footage and add subtitles before you move the video onto, say, YouTube.

7.2Mb/s HSDPA and 8Mp camera

Content can be sent wirelessly to other Bluetooth devices, through a cabled USB connection or you can slot the 110 x 51.5 x 12.7mm phone’s Micro SD memory card into your PC’s card slot.

The Ultra Edition supports all mainstream connectivity options, of course, including HSDPA connections of up to 7.2Mb/s, Edge and quad-band GSM. GPS is included too.

Takes SD memory of up to 16GB capacity

Entertainment comes courtesy of either the integrated FM radio with RDS, or the phone’s support for various audio formats, including MP3, WMA and AAC.

Samsung said the Tocco Ultra Edition will be available in the UK next month, but it hasn’t released a price yet. ®
