UPDATE: Budget Samsung touch-screen quietly launched

So we've just heard from Samsung that there are no plans to launch their new 'affordable' touch-screen, the S5600, in the UK. Boo, hiss. All the original details below.  

 

Mobile Review has posted some pictures of a new Samsung touch-screen, the GT-S5600, which was apparently shown at Mobile World Congress.

 

It's a mid-range touch-screen with 3G and Samsung's TouchWiz interface (also featured on its upcoming Tocco Ultra and Beat DJ phones). We haven't heard much else, except that it has a secondary camera for video-calls, and looks like it may have an optical mouse.

 

While the Tocco Ultra and Show projector were big news at Mobile World Congress last week, we didn't catch so much as a peep from the S5600. But it sounds like it'll rival the LG Cookie for the best-touch-screen-on-a-budget title.

 

In the meantime, to get a peek at the interface it'll run out, check out our video demos of the Tocco Ultra and Beat DJ phones.
