Sporting a 2.8 inch capacitive touch screen, Samsung Corby definitely makes a strong statement in the Mobile market. With no real competition in the low end Touch Screen scenario, Samsung tries to strengthen its hold in the sub Rs 10,000 / $240 Touch screen market. After good success with Samsung STAR and STAR 3G, this phone is expected to consolidate its hold.
The phone has an unusual rounded shape rather than a typical bar shape of Nokia 5800 or Apple Iphone. Also the phone comes in funky colors like Caribbean Yellow,Pink etc. Lets look how it compares against other similar full touch screen phones in terms of dimensions and thickness
Samsung Corby – 103 x 56.5 x 12 mm LG Cookie KP500 -106.5 x 55.4 x 11.9 mm Nokia 5800 – 111 x 51.7 x 15.5 mm Nokia 5530 – 104 x 49 x 13 mm Samsung STAR – 104 x 53 x 11.9 mm Nokia X6 – 111 x 51 x 13.8 mm Nokia X3 – 96 x 49 x 14 (Not a touch screen) mm Nokia N97 – 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 (18.2 max) mm Iphone 3Gs -115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm Nokia E71 – 114 x 57 x 10 mm Nokia N97 mini – 113 x 52.5 x14.2 mm
The phone is definitely a slim one in its league also very light weighing at 94 g. And its screen is bright and as you would expect from a capacitive touch screen, doesnt support multi touch etc.
But Samsung Corby comes preloaded with variety of Apps for the internet hungry youth, Orkut,MySpace,Facebook, Twitter,Yahoo messenger,Google Talk, Gmail , Youtube, Flickr,Picasa to name a few. It comes with 27 widgets preloaded and you can still download 75 more from samsung site for free.
It has a inbuilt memory of 64 MB and supports upto 8GB in External Memory Cards. The phone comes with 2MP camera without Autofocus, with One touch zoom. In connectivity Corby supports Bluetooth A2DP (streaming stereo music over bluetooth). There is no 3G and Wifi.
The phone comes with an office viewer, but strangely Samsung omitted On Screen QWERTY keyboard, which might be a turnoff for many considering this phone is targetted at social media fans. Also there is no accelerometer to Auto rotate the screen mode between Landscape and portrait.

Well if you have sub 10k budget Samsung Corby S3653 is definitely a good buy. The price of Samsung Corby S3653 is Rs 8600 ($ 200 ) and you might end up getting more discounts during Diwali or New Year offers.
Nokia today announced two cool Music phones one a slider keypad phone and other a full Touch screen Phone. The X3 is expected to be priced at around 200$ and Nokia X6 to be retailed around 700$ USD. The phones will be available in Europe and Asia. Now lets take a closer look at the Nokia X6 which promises cutting edge features in a slim package, a real competitor to Apple Iphone 3Gs.
The new X6 boasts of Full body Capacitive (Multi Touch capable – first phone from Nokia) touch screen with a 3.2″ wide screen at 640×360 (nHD), 5MP Camera , 32GB of internal memory,A-GPS,Accelerometer,S60 V5 feature Pack 2, Wide Screen Aspect Ratio(16:9),Desktop Page capable internet browser,Flashlite,On-board video editing and much more. Definitely the phone is a power packed one and without the keypad of N97, it also is slimmer and less bulkier than N97. To compare this phone with Nokia 5800 will not be fair as the price is almost similar to N97.
Lets have a look at the dimensions of X3 and X6 compared with other top phones.
Comparision of X6 with N97,iphone,Nokia 5800 in terms of dimensions. Lenght x Width x Thickness
Nokia X6 – 111 x 51 x 13.8 mm Nokia X3 – 96 x 49 x 14 (Not a touch screen) mm Nokia N97 – 117.2 x 55.3 x 15.9 (18.2 max) mm Iphone 3Gs -115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm Nokia E71 – 114 x 57 x 10 mm Nokia 5800 – 111 x 51.7 x 15.5 mm Nokia 5530 – 104 x 49 x13 mm Nokia N97 mini – 113 x 52.5 x14.2 mm
Definitely the Nokia X6 is occupying less space compared to both Apple iPhone ,N97 and Nokia N97 mini.
One sad point is the phone doesnt have an upgraded processor it still uses ARM 11 434 MHz processor and 128MB RAM as in the case of N97. Though this processor and memory is more than enough to handle the OS still an upgrade would have been much better.
The phone definitely looks cooler than the current crop of phones including Samsung and LG models and all with a powerful OS and a huge collection of Apps. But the pricing wont excite many but then compared to a unlocked Apple iPhone this is definitely a better deal.
