Samsung Rolls Out First Android Offering

Samsung joins the Android revolution with its Galaxy offering

Getting on the Google bandwagon, Samsung’s new Galaxy smartphone will be the first Samsung mobile that utilises the Android operating system, which provides a Google experience with a range of application downloads. It is one of four phones released by Samsung under the Icon banner. It also features a 3.2-inch AMOLED full touchscreen for bright colours, and the HSDPA and WiFi allows users to stay connected.

And how’s this for cool – another offering, the Preston, has a Smart Unlock feature that allows you to execute the menu by using your finger to draw a letter of the alphabet on your touchscreen and it goes to the nominated menu. You have to programme it of course, but it does away with having to go through several windows before arriving at the desired location.
The Preston also has the intuitive TouchWiz User Interface, which allows users to customise and personalise the way they use their phone by dragging and placing widgets on the screen for maximum ease of use.

The Samsung OMNIA is designed for the Smartphone user who demands all their business and entertainment devices in one unit. It incorporates wifi, a high-end camera, music and video functionality with Windows Mobile 6.1 professional (updateable to 6.5) operating system. It also features a 3.7-inch AMOLED display.

Finally, theres the Samsung HD, which as the name suggests offers HD video recording that can be connected via Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) and playback recorded videos on an HD television. It has a 3.7 inch AMOLED, and Samsung’s first Symbian operating system on a full-touch handset, and also incorporates Samsung’s Touch Wiz User Interface.
