Samsung P520 (SGH-P520)

 Samsung P520 Coming soon
29th July 2007

The Samsung P520 is an elegant touch-screen phone with a 3 megapixel camera. Fitting into the same product range as the P310 "Card Phone" and bearing a resemblence to the LG Prada, the SGH-P520 can be considered to be something of a competitor for the Apple iPhone.

The large 2.6" 240x320 pixel touchscreen is the most striking feature on the SGH-P520, along with the strikingly minimalist design. As with the P310, there's a carry case available which protects the handset and also makes it look quite stylish.

 SGH-P520 The SGH-P520 is quite compact for a large-screen phone, measuring 88 x 54 x 8.9mm and weighing 102 grams. It should be noted that the size and weight excludes the case.

Of course, there's a multimedia player and the Samsung P520 also has microSD expandable memory and stereo Bluetooth. So, it looks to be a well-rounded device.

There are a couple of drawbacks - the first one is that this isn't a 3G phone, just supporting GPRS and EDGE data. This means that web browsing speeds will be quite slow. 12 months ago this wouldn't have been an issue, but the truth is that 2007 has seen a real boom in the take-up of 3G devices and sadly the Samsung SGH-P520 just doesn't compete. Also, from what we can tell the video capture resolution of the P520 is limited to relatively low resolution 176x144 pixels.

Samsung say that the maximum talktime of the SGH-P520 is 3 hours with up to 9 days standby time. Pricing and availability are not know at present.
