Samsung has launched Metro 3G S 5350 in India. The handset will be available for Rs.8250 and is targeted at budget conscious consumers looking for a 3G handset.
The phone should appeal to the young generation as it comes preloaded with Instant Messenger, Google applications and widgets providing quick access to Web 2.0 services such as Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, Friendster, Photobucket and Picasa.
The S 5350 also includes a 3.2 Mega Pixel camera with Panorama and Smile shot. It comes with 256 MB internal memory, which can be expanded up to 16 GB (micro SD).
After numerous setbacks and delays, 3G in India is finally set to take off. Samsung Metro 3G S 5350 does not really offer anything special, but it is timed quite adequately. It will be interesting if Samsung can replicate the success of the Corby series with its new handsets.
