Samsung Diva launches next month

If you're a female mobile phone user, you must be wishing your phone had a white embossed cover, or some crystal buttons, or at the very least, pink.


Well, wish no more - Samsung announced its Diva Collection last week, a series of fashion phones aimed at the ladies (and metrosexuals?), and the first one, the S7070 is ready to launch. It's not pink, but it does have a pearly white quilted back cover, and its 'OK' button is made of crystal and diamond shaped for that opulent look.


Under its pretty lil bonnet, it's packing a 2.8-inch LCD touch-screen, and a 3.2-megapixel camera with beauty shot (smooth out those imperfections) and the 'Lomo effect' filter to turn your plebian snapshots all arty like. It'll also sport Samsung's icon-heavy TouchWiz interface with plenty of widgets in stock, from the useful (weather) to the cute-but-slightly-useless (birthday reminder).


Social networking wise, the Diva will support push notifications for Facebook and MySpace events, and a multi-account instant messenger that can aggregate contacts from Hotmail, Gtalk and more. It's also preloaded with some cute extras we've seen from Samsung before, like Etiquette Mode and Fake Call, demoed in this video.


The rest is pretty basic - Bluetooth, 40MB with microSD slot to expand memory, and a standard music player. The Diva clocks in at 101 x 54.8 x 13.4mm and 94 grams, with an impressive talktime up to 600 minutes, and standby of 800 hours.


Available in the UK in January 2010 as well as in the Netherlands, Russia and Ukraine, followed by Southeastern Asia and China.
