Samsung globetrots with dual-mode 3G phone

updated 10:00 am EST, Thu March 1, 2007

Samsung W2500

Samsung today hoped to appeal to world travelers with the W2500. One of the Korean cellphone maker's increasing number of slim slider phones at 0.54 inches, the phone's chief appeal is its flexibility. The W2500 supports both GSM and WCDMA networks, letting it connect to multiple Asian and European networks -- including the third-generation HSDPA mobile Internet access used in both regions. Equally unique are 3D-effect menus, Samsung says, though the exact workings of the feature remain unknown.

Also present are a 2-megapixel camera at the back and a microSD card slot for storing music and videos. The phone will debut today in Korea with black and silver models, but should find its way to Europe at a later date.
