Samsung SGH-i520

Samsung launched their new slimline Symbian PDA slider, the SGH-i520, with HSDPA connectivity at the Symbian Smartphone Show in London.

At only 1.8cm thick, the new HSDPA smartphone i520 is based on Symbian OS v9 and S60 3rd Edition, the same as a Nokia N95. The slim slider phone has an HSDPA radio and browser enabling Internet access and content download speeds up to five times faster than other smartphones. It has an attractive design and comes with a convenient and sophisticated touch pad providing short-cuts to key phone functions.

The handset boasts a 2.3 inch display, bluetooth, an expandable microSD slot, and a 2 megapixel camera and will be available to the European market.

Andy Brannan, executive vice-president, sales and customer operations, Symbian, said, "The Samsung i520 elegantly combines an attractive slim smartphone with high-speed Internet access providing consumers with a new level of interaction and immediacy for information and entertainment. We welcome the i520 to our family of Symbian OS v9 smartphones and look forward to more from Samsung in the future."
