Samsung launches mobile music trio

The iPhone and Sony Eric’s Walkman range may think they’ve conquered the music phone market but Samsung’s just launched its line-up of trained assassins.Wearing the blackbelt and smearing war paint under its 2.4in display is the delectable i450. As well as sporting a Nokia N95-a-like dual slide format and the same Series 60 interface, it also gets an iPod-esque touch wheel. It manages HSDPA data speeds and there’s a MicroSD slot to top up the paltry 35MB on board memory. Samsung’s pals at Bang & Olufsen have also given the 450 the once over, kitting it out with their tasty ICEpower amplified speakers. With all that fun always comes a sacrifice so don’t expect more than 2MP out of the camera.Following it into battle is the F300 replacement, the aptly named F330. It gets the same dual face design – music one side, phone the other – HSDPA, MicroSD and the same 2MP snapper as its i450 comrade.Finally bringing up the rear is the swivelling F210 which packs a respectable 1GB memory but also gets a MicroSD slot for topping up and an FM radio, plus natty necklace integrated ear buds.For some reason Italy and Germany are getting first dibs but we’re promised a look-in here ‘shortly’.EssentialsSamsung SGH-i450, SGH-F330, SGH-F210Price: €360, €260, €280On sale: TBA (Now in Italy and Germany)Contact: SamsungRelated stories:B&O and Samsung’s Serenata revealedSamsung i550 takes on the N95Samsung F700 to spoil iPhone’s party
