Most people these days carry mobile phones that pretty much act as an all-in-one device. From digital cameras, MP3 players, PDAs, video player and recorder, browsers, mobile phones can do just about anything. Oh, and did I forget to mention that they can actually make phone calls too? No need to switch between the various devices that have become so necessary in this digital age. And yet there are probably some people and/or cases where a simple cell phone becomes the need, maybe due to cost (some of the do-everything phones do cost an arm and a leg, that’s not counting the monthly bill for data and voice), simplicity (nice to carry around a simple, lightweight, superb battery life phone once in a while), or some other reason when those fancy phones become unnecessary.
In such cases, phones such as the Samsung E210 probably become a perfect solution. A regular flip-phone bestowed with Samsung’s Ultra Edition slim design makes this a worthy gadget for people wanting basic cell phone capability, but a cool and professional appearance. It’s a tri-band GSM phone (900/1800/1900 MHz) with GPRS connectivity, and has a 1.3 MP camera, 10MB internal memory, microSD slot, Bluetooth, a 120×160 65K color OLED screen capable of taking 176×144 res/15 fps video capture, and USB.
Weighing in at 82g, it’s expected to cost about $200 with no contract.
