Samsung Corby now a range of phones

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.
