Samsung Announces Availability of the Soul with 5 Megapixel Camera
      #30048 - 04/21/08 03:15 AM

Samsung today announced the launch of 'Soul', Samsung's first half flagship product in 2008. Starting from France, UK, and Germany, Soul will be available through major European mobile operators and in most of GSM supporting open markets during April and May.

Soul was showcased at GSMA Mobile World Congress 2008 at Barcelona for the first time in February. Samsung named 'Soul' to honor the completion of its exclusive 'Ultra Edition' series.

Soul is the ultimate essence of mobile; a slim, lightweight and stylish product yet still boasting all the essential functions in one single device. A sleek combination of highly styled design and functionality is a triumph of extreme opposite values, ?Portability? and ?Multi-function.?

Soul enhances the usability for the user with features that adapt to the user depending on the application. With magical touch by DaCP?, navigation indicators on the keypad of the phone change according to the user?s needs, making navigation of the menus simple, intuitive and direct. The navigation panel?s icons change according to function. For example, when in music mode, music related icons will light up on the navigation indicators. When in camera mode, camera related icons such as zoom and brightness icons will appear.

Soul answers today?s customer needs of a perfect 5-megapixel digital camera and multimedia mobile combined into one single device. Features such as face detection, image stabilizer and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR), which are very up-to-date features even in today?s digital cameras, are also equipped in Soul.

Users can enjoy super-fast Internet access through the 7.2 Mbps High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) browser and share images or video taken with the phone. With 7.2 Mpbs HSDPA, users can also easily download songs at a faster speed compared to average 3G networks.
