Samsung Genio Slide available today

Samsung is well acquainted with producing budget phones with great specs, and its latest, the Genio Slide is now available (it's known as the Corby Slide in markets outside the UK).


Like its equally good-value £100 brother, the Genio Touch, the Slide is aimed at the 'youth market', and comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard beneath a 2.8-inch touch-screen.


Because young people love TV, the Slide is preloaded with BBC iPlayer, and hot links to other young people favourites like Twitter, Facebook and the web. You'll also get a three-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, support for high-speed HSDPA itnernet, GPS and, applause, a 3.5mm audio jack, so those young people can listen to that racket they call music using their own headphones.


Other trademarks of the Genio line include changeable (and colourful, youngsters like those brights!) back covers, and neat touch-screen features with one-finger zoom (just circle your digit on the screen) and smart unlock via preset gestures.


The Genio Slide clocks in at 105x56.8x15.7mm and 135g, with a pretty measly internal storage of 100MB, but you'll be able to beef that up via the microSD slot. Available on Vodafone exclusively for a month, with more operators to follow.
