This unassuming stainless steel slider is the Samsung S3500. Priced at around 7500 roubles or €165 SIM-free, the S3500 falls into the bottom end of the midrange market segment.

What do you get for your money? Well, there's a 2.2" 240 x 320 pixel display, a 2 megapixel camera, FM radio, media player and stereo Bluetooth.

 Samsung S3500 So, exactly why would you choose the Samsung S3500 over a phone like the Nokia 6300? We really can't think of any convincing reasons why you wouldn't want to go for the Nokia alternative - the 6300 is a hugely popular phone for a good reason.

There are a few things that the Samsung S3500 can do which sets it very slightly apart from the competition. A mobile tracker application allows you to trace a stolen mobile, even when the SIM is swapped. An SOS call function allows you to send a distress call with a special keypress combination, and a fake call facility allows you to generate a fake phone call to get you out of difficult situations.

With these "safety features", it is perhaps no surprise that the S3500 will end up first in the country with the highest murder rate in Europe: Russia. With a homicide rate ten times that of most other European countries, these safety features might just make the additional cost worthwhile.

However, we have also seen these safety features in the Samsung Tobi, so perhaps there really is a good market for a mobile phone as a personal safety tool.

We're not sure exactly when the S3500 will go on sale, although we should imagine that it is sometime over the next few weeks.
