Samsung sells its Soul for a profit

For a top-of-the-range device that blends attractive design, wonderful technology and    broad, sensible functionality, Samsung has come up trumps with its U900 slider, known as the Samsung Soul. It is the Korean manufacturer’s flagship phone of 2008 for good reason: it is super-sexy and super-slim with slide phone that sports dual-screen touch-sensitive controls and metal casing.

With a five megapixel camera with autofocus and advanced face detection technology, 3G video calling, MP3 player, FM radio and a sensible chuck of memory the Soul – in Graphite, Silver or Pink – fits the bill for most people.

It incorporates a feature called Magic Touch which allows the Soul 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 navigation panel.

It offers 3G (HSDPA) data connectivity for speeds of up to 7.2Mb/s, so you download songs, for example, then play through the U900’s ICEpower digital power amplifiers – courtesy of high-end audio equipment manufacturer Bang & Olufsen.

It has 100 Mbytes of internal memory and a memory card slot; applications include a document viewer as well as email, wireless connectivity via Bluetooth and triband GSM: one wonders why not quadband, though.
Perhaps the most significant point in its favour is that the only real carping has been about the volume – or, rather, the lack of it – of the ringtones!

All in all samsung has bared its soul and got it right big time making it a bestseller !
