Samsung P300 (SGH-P300)

 Samsung P300 Discontinued
12th November 2005

The Samsung P300 is a tiny "business card" sized handset due for launch in Europe before the end of 2005. The SGH-P300 measures 86x54x8.9mm and weighs 81 grams, making it one of the most compact handsets in the world.

Physically the Samsung P300 is almost exactly the same size as the VK Mobile VK2000, but it's heavier at 81 grams compared the the VK2000's 48 grams. However, the SGH-P300 packs in many more features than the VK handset.

 Samsung P300 Closed So.. what's in the Samsung P300? Well, it's pretty remarkable really. There's a 1.8" 220x176 pixel display, a 1.3 megapixel camera with flash and video capture capabilities, Bluetooth, an MP3/AAC player, speakerphone, web browser and email client. There's no expandable memory though, and we are uncertain as to how much memory the P300 has internally - although we have seen third-party reports that the P300 actually comes with 90Mb which certainly would make it a viable music player.

There's no getting away from the fact that the SGH-P300 looks like a pocket calculator. The folding case (pictured left) reinforces this look too. The keys do looks more usable than the VK2000's too.

We don't want to dwell for too long on the VK2000 versus P300 debate, so let's say that they are both highly impressive devices - the VK2000 is lighter, prettier and cheaper than the Samsung, but the P300 is a fully-featured device with a much more impressive technical specification.

Ultimately, the Samsung SGH-P300 doesn't compromise much on features, despite its tiny weight and form factor. It squeezes in pretty much all the features of devices weighing 100 grams or more. Certainly, it's an odd looking phone, but the small physical size is going to give the handset plenty of "wow factor" in any case.

Samsung say that the P300 will be available in Europe by the end of 2005.
