Samsung has announced two more mobile phones that will be sold under the Corby banner.
The initial release of the original Samsung B3650 was welcomed by observers as a useful messaging handset. Yet no-one expected other Corby handsets to appear afterwards. Yet, that's exactly what has happened. The Corby label now resembles an umbrella brand name for a whole range of messaging phones.
This explains why the later release of the Samsung B3210 resembled the original Corby. The B3210 phone has now been renamed as a Samsung CorbyTXT, complete with brightly coloured chassis, QWERTY keyboard, social networking facilities like access to Facebook and Twitter, email, Instant Messenger, a 2-megapixel camera and FM radio. This handset will be launched into Europe next week, according to the GSM Arena website.
The other new Corby release is the CorbyPRO that includes a 3G data facility, Wi-Fi, QWERTY keyboard, 3-megapixel camera, dedicated music buttons, push email, threaded SMS and widgets to familiar social networking sites. Expect a November launch into Europe.
No prices were mooted at this time.
