has been, over the course of the past few months, working on its newer range of touchscreen-enabled phones. Their work seems to have paid off rather well, considering the fact that it has become the largest seller of touchscreen phones in parts of Europe.
Samsung, it seems, is not ready to rest on its laurels, and is prepping a host of new touchscreen devices to keep the momentum going. First amongst the new set of touchscreen handsets that is expected from the company is the GT-S8800 touchscreen device. The phone has had its share of scoops and leaked photos, but we had no inkling regarding its specifications. However, a Russian retail site managed to post some details of the phone, which were later pulled back.
The S8800 will be sporting an updated version of Samsung's famed TouchWiz interface. This is not a smartphone and will run the generic Samsung OS. It sports a 3.1-inch, 480 x 800 pixel AMOLED screen. As for other features, this will be a Quad band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone with Dual band UMTS connectivity (900/2100 MHz). Then there is Wi-Fi, A-GPS, Bluetooth 2.1, a well-equipped media player, a much-needed 3.5mm headset jack, and 2GB of memory (expandable). The camera is a 5 megapixel unit.
There are two other devices in the offing, which will be sporting the new TouchWiz UI. However, they are smartphones running unspecified OS as of now. We will need to wait for more details on these.
