The phone also throws in a FM radio with RDS.
Measuring 103mm x 56.5mm x 12.0mm, this handset weighs only 93 grams. Along with the 960mAh battery, the Corby also incorporates various value added features like Pop-Up SNS, fashion jacket, Cartoon UI, One Finger zoom, dictionary and Smart Unlock. The handset supports EDGE/GPRS and Quad Band networks.
This handset is said to offer the best social networking services along with enhanced multimedia features. The Samsung Corby full-touch handset will be made available in Europe starting from mid-September. The handset is speculated to be price tagged at around â‚¬150 (approx. Rs. 10,497).
