Samsung Mobile has launched "the UK's very first camera phone to feature a swivel hinge screen that can twist through 180 degrees" which, says Samsung optimistically, "provides camcorder-like convenience when taking pictures." Welcome the SGH-V200!
Well, apart from that excitement, it's not just another camera phone. It's Multimedia Messaging Enabled (MMS) enabled too. There's also "One-touch digital zooming and digital brightness" control, and up to 100 images can be stored on the handset.
It displays up to 65,000 colours on its TFD LCD screen with 128 x 160 pixels, is a tri-band phone and has GPRS data. Standard features include predictive text input (T9), animated wallpapers, calendar, currency converter, alarm clock, PIM (Personal Information Management) features and vibrate alert. The standard battery allows for up to five hours talk time and 120 hours standby, with "up to" four hours talk time and 100 hours standby on the slim battery.
There are twenty five polyphonic ringtones stored within the phone and users can download five of their favourite at one time via the Samsung Fan Club (http://uk.samsungmobile.com/index.jsp)

The ground-breaking smooth, rounded design of this modern handset is a complete communication and multimedia centre which includes a built-in camera where you can takes photos or record videos of yourself, including sound and share these experiences by sending them as an MMS message to all your mates and see them turn green with envy!
Whilst the Nokia 7650 has a colour screen and integrated camera, the unique difference with the 3650 is its unique appearance featuring a circular designed keypad with five-way scroll key - but it also possesses the ultimate camcorder and video player. Play video clips as well as movie trailers with streaming or playback using Real One Player software, download Symbian and Java applications and truly personalize your new handset with colourful changeable covers, images and a range of sub-sonic polyphonic ringtones to bring your handset to life.
The tri-band 3650 with a 4096-colour funky designed screen and icon-based navigation is now one of the highest spec phones to hit the shelves with 4MB of memory,(this can be increased with a memory card for extra storage), a large colour display, MMS, Java MID 1.0, still imaging, video capture (camcorder and playback) as well as being Bluetooth enabled so you can download a range of arcade-style colour games, as well as graphic wallpapers direct to your handset as well as being able to play interactive gaming with other Bluetooth phone owners.

Sony Ericsson T610
A new graphical look
The T610 features a high-resolution screen with 65,536 colors.
More importantly, the T610 takes advantage of the large screen by introducing a graphical interface that focuses on ease of use. Soft keys make applications easier and faster to use. Hotlinks in menus give you direct access to various services. Animated icons and color add life to the desktop and menus. A large screen also equals space: You will find four rows of menu icons instead of three - and, of course, plenty of room for your messages.
