The Samsung BEATDJ (also called the Samsung M7600) is an attractively designed multimedia touchscreen phone, aimed at those who want to do more than just listen to their music.

Apart from the attractive styling, what sets the BEATDJ apart from other phones is the music playback software. Budding DJs can remix their favourite tracks by adding effects, mixing them together or even performing scratches through the M7600's specially designed music playback interface (called DISC UI).

In reality, probably only a small number of BEATDJ owners will use these advanced capabilities, and they will stick to straightforward music playback. The BEATDJ has a B&O ICEpower amplifier, built-in stereo speakers, virtual surround sound and a standard 3.5 mm audio socket plus a number of other enhancements which will make the Samsung BEATDJ an excellent music player.

The large 2.8" 240 x 400 pixel display is also useful for playing back video clips, and the BEATDJ M7600 supports DivX, XviD, H.263. H.264 and MPEG4 video types. The built-in accelerometer automatically turns the screen between wide and tall orientations.

 Samsung M7600 The Samsung BEATDJ has a 3 megapixel camera on the back with autofocus and flash. The camera uses the M7600's built-in GPS to automatically geotag photos, and it also has smile detection and face detection software built in. Video capture resolution appears to be 640 x 480 pixels at 15 frames per second, which is OK but not as good as some. Despite the relatively low resolution of the camera, it will probably be good enough for most users.

It isn't clear exactly what added value features the GPS system comes with, but it does seem to be able to do more than just geotag photos.

Other features include an FM radio with RDS, stereo Bluetooth 2.1, USB 2.0 connectivity, video editing, and mobile blogging.

Underneath, this is a quad-band GSM phone with UMTS and HSDPA support, presumably in the 2100 MHz band. The M7600 does not appear to have WiFi. Overall size is 112 x 51 x 14mm, and the BEATDJ has a 960 mAh battery which we think might be a little on the small side for a device of this type. Internal memory is 50MB, expandable to 16GB using a compatible microSD card.

At the moment we are unsure as to when the BEATDJ will hit the market, but we think that this attractive phone will enjoy some attention when it finally does hit the streets.
