Samsung has announced the G800,5-Megapixel Cameraphone

Samsung has announced the G800, what it calls the world’s first 5-megapixel cameraphone with 3X optical zoom. The handset also includes other high-end digital camera features such as panorama shots, multishots and macro-shots, as well as a video editing application so users can easily cut, paste and edit their own films from their handsets. The G800 also includes face detection and Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) features.

Designed for 2-handed grip when taking pictures, the G800’s 2.4-inch QVGA LCD display allows users to view the screen like a digital camera. The 3X optical zoom is an inner zoom, so that the lens does not extend outside the body of the phone.



“As multi-megapixel cameraphone becomes more and more popular, the needs of actual digital camera-like features grow together. Samsung’s G800 will satisfy the unmet needs in the camera category with a true digital camera-like design and functionality,” Geesung Choi, president of Samsung’s Telecommunication Network, said in a statement. “The G800 will enable users to capture and share precious moments in their daily lives through the enhanced camera functions in a fast 3G network.”

The Samsung G800 will be available in Europe beginning next month.

Power failure screws samsung prodcution


An electrical problem at a Samsung Electronics Co. factory Friday forced a partial halt in production at the world’s largest memory chip maker, the company said, raising prospects of a global shortage.

According to yahoo A spark in an electrical transformer led to a power failure on six chip-making lines at a plant near Seoul, spokeswoman Lee Soo-jeong said. Five of the lines make memory chips and one makes chips for other functions, he said.

Samsung is the world’s largest producer of memory chips for use in computers, digital music players and other devices.

Analysts said the suspension of Samsung’s chip lines could lead to a severe shortage of NAND flash memory chips, which are able to retain data even when they are unpowered. Samsung’s misfortune could give a boost to its South Korean rival Hynix Semiconductor Inc. and Japan‘s Toshiba Corp

Twist and shout, the Samsung X830 reviewed

Samsung X830

Slashphone has just put up their review of the curiously twisty phone/MP3 player. The verdict? Ok.

According to the review, those that seek slim phones, like to extract “oohs and ahs” from passerbys, and those who like to take pictures, this is for you. If you are a mad texter, maybe not. Then there is the ergonomic factor.

Tune up your style with the new Samsung SGH D840!


The D840 is a slider and it isn’t all that different in size and shape from LG’s Shine. Like the Shine the D840 is sliver, though there is less metal going on here with much of the casing on the D840’s sides and back made of plastic. Only the front sliding section incorporates significant amounts of metal.

Overall, the D840’s dimensions (99mm x 51mm x 11.9mm) make it a fairly sizeable ask for a pocket, though its 104g is nice and light. When you open the slider to get at the numberpad the D840 grows to 132m – quite a chunk of phone to hold to your ear.
As sliders go the D840 is nice enough to use. There is a little ridge just below the screen which you can grab with a thumb and the slide mechanism itself is ‘assisted’ so you don’t have to hoik at it – just a gentle push or pull is all that’s required.

The front screen is a fairly standard 240 x 320 pixel 262,000 colour job, but Samsung, as ever, ensures it is clear and bright. I did have a bit of trouble framing photos and generally reading the screen outdoors in bright sunshine, but that’s nothing new for a mobile really. On a purely personal note, I like Samsung’s poppy wallpaper – its vibrant red just makes the screen look so appealing, and the date and time are nice and large so they can be seen at a glance.

Beneath the screen the front buttons are a fairly standard bunch but nicely designed and easy to use. The Call and End/power keys and softmenu keys are large. Under the navigation button is a long, thin delete key, and the navigation button itself has a central select key which doubles to start the Internet browser running.

This is a Tri-band handset with GPRS rather than a 3G so you won’t be wanting to Web browse a great deal. If you do decide to drop into the odd website, there is mixed news. The browser has two viewing options: ‘SmartFit view’ and ‘Desktop view’. The former does what it can to squeeze sites so that only vertical scrolling is needed but it isn’t always effective. In fact, the Desktop view did a better job with some sites.

Look out for some popular mobile application and games for Samsung SGH D840
