Samsung Corby TXT (Samsung Genio TXT / B3210)

 Samsung Corby TXT (Genio TXT) Discontinued
27th September 2009

The Samsung Corby TXT (called the Samsung Genio TXT in the UK) is designed to be a simple but fun messaging phone.

It's a classic BlackBerry-style handset with a small QWERTY keyboard underneath a non-touchscreen display. On the back is a 2 megapixel camera, and the Corby TXT supports microSD expandable memory, comes with a multimedia player, FM radio and it has a standard 3.5mm audio socket.

Unlike other "Corby" (or "Genio") handsets, the Corby TXT B3210 comes with a very basic screen. The conventional 2.2" 176 x 220 pixel panel won't be as fun to use as other phones in the range, but it should just about be acceptable for texting, IM and email messages.

The user interface has been given a cartoon-style makeover to inject some fun, and the box contains a plain black cover plus a brightly coloured one that can be put on instead.

It's quite a lightweight device at 94 grams, which is not bad for a device with a QWERTY keyboard like this. The multimedia player should be useful enough for entertainment purposes, and we have always found that even basic Samsung cameraphones produce quite pleasing results when it comes to stills photos. This is a GSM-only phone - the Samsung Corby TXT doesn't support 3G or WiFi connectivity.

There's no word on pricing, but this will probably be a very inexpensive device when it hits the shops from September onwards.
