April 2009 Roundup

 Share this

30th April 2009

Samsung and LG led the pack during April, but most major manufacturers had something interesting to show.

Samsung

Perhaps the most interesting handset announcement this month was the Samsung I7500 Android-powered smartphone, which is likely to be the first chance that many customers will have of owning an Android phone. The Samsung Tocco Lite touchscreen phone looks like it will compete directly with the popular LG Cookie. The DUOS range is expanded by the dual-SIM Samsung B5702 slider phone which improves slightly on the old D880.

LG

The LG GC900 Viewty Smart is an impressive touchscreen camera phone from LG, but then so is the LG KC910i Renoir.. will customers be confused? We are. LG also gave a second peek at the very cool LG GD900 Crystal touchscreen phone with a transparent keypad, which we think will be a big hit.

Sony Ericsson

We felt a bit underwhelmed this month with the bargain basement Sony Ericsson W205 "Walkman" phone and the Sony Ericsson S312 "Snapshot" phone. We haven't seen anything truly impressive from Sony Ericsson for a while.

Other manufacturers

The Nokia 6216 Classic is an NFC-enabled device looking for a market that doesn't really seem to exist at the moment. On the other end of the scale is the luxury BELLPERRE NERO GOLD which may also struggle to find buyers in these economically difficult times. A new twist to an old favourite is the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 which is easily the best Sidekick messaging device ever. Another impressive messaging phone is the HTC Snap which introduces some clever email management features to help keep on top of your messages.
