Two new Samsung slider phones appear

Samsung X530 and E250

Samsung is fond of designer phones and updates its line on a near-weekly basis; nevertheless, the company has an aptitude for producing interesting designs that merit attention. The latest of these are two new slider models that reflect the company's recent obsession with slider designs. The X530 (pictured) is a champagne-colored model with an especially thin, 0.55-inch shape that should differentiate it from its normally bulkier competitors. Samsung is clearly targeting it at the mid-range with EDGE, a VGA camera, and Bluetooth being its main features. Also appearing today is the E250. Not much has been revealed about the phone other than its focus on playing AAC and MP3 music and the inclusion of a microSD card slot for storage. Its silver, angular design might be preferable to the rounded look of the X530. North American launches for either phone haven't been announced. Photos of both cellphone designs are available after the jump, courtesy of Slashphone.
