Samsung debuts 5-megapixel, 3G slider phone

Samsung G600 Official

Samsung today kicked off the official release of the G600, its latest camera and media-focused cellphone. The slider design makes use of the company's latest refinements in sensors to provide a 5-megapixel camera in a 14.9mm (0.6-inch) frame, including 5X digital zoom and an LED flash for night shots. A front camera is provided for video calls and is accompanied by unspecified 3G wireless (likely UMTS). Users also have a wide range of choices for music, according to Samsung: FM radio and a microSD slot are backed by a still-rare USB 2.0 port that helps sideload MP3 music and other files quickly.

Targeted at Europe, the phone launches in the area today and should be available through carriers with prices varying by country. No details have been released of phone network support, but the device is so far not expected to be available for North America in its current form.
