And the beat goes on...

Now, phones aren't usually my forte, but when Samsung asked if I wanted to review their new MP3 spouting mini-boom box of a phone, I couldn't really say no. The real clincher was the Bang & Olufsen speakers embedded in the phone, which appealed to the audiophile in me.

Unpacking it from its box, we can see that what the customer demands from a phone manufacturer these days is EVERYTHING. You get much more than just a charger and a little headset; with this phone we get a beefy looking set of headphones with in-line mic, data cable, software and a 1GB MicroSD card to boot.

Taking a page from their Finnish competitors' product, we can see this phone slides both ways. Flip it up for an extended 15 button keypad, adding some extra buttons atop your standard 12 key pad to enhance the phone functionality and provide the user with more shortcuts.

Slide it down and you reveal the two Bang & Olufsen driver units that pump out your tunes for all to hear. But thanks to some clever software jiggery pokery, you are presented with some menu options to launch the music/radio/video players, so there is less time spent fiddling around in the menu system.
