The new Samsung T609 packs a lot of technology into a small clamshell style flip-phone. Its small and lightweight design includes such advanced features as a 1.3 Megapixel camera, Bluetooth communications, MP3 player and voice activated dialing.
Let's take a closer look at the T609. Outside is a sleek white case with a handy monochrome display to show you important information such as signal strength and battery life. You'll also see the lens for the Megapixel quality digital camera, which comes with a flash and 4x digital zoom. This camera is good enough to take print quality photos or videos up to 40 seconds long.
Flip open your Samsung T609 and you'll find a high resolution color display that is larger than you might expect in a phone that has a smaller footprint than a standard business card. It's 176 x 200 pixels and can display over 262, 000 colors. That's perfect for viewing the pictures you take or streaming multimedia content. You won't be feeling the need to trade up for a better display any time soon.
The T609 is Internet enabled with data download speeds up to 135 Kbps on the T-Mobile EDGE broadband cellular network. A mobile Web browser is includes, as is an email client that supports the popular POP3 and SMTP protocols. You also have several other types of messaging capability beyond email. Standard SMS text messaging is available, as it multimedia messaging to send and receive picture and video messages. Instant messaging is built-in to support AOL, Yahoo! and ICQ instant messages. The phonebook capacity is huge, with up to 1,000 contacts and up to 5 entries per contact.
Take your tunes with you. The Samsung T609 includes an MP3 player that lets you synchronize and play your favorite song playlists.
It's great fun to use an attractive and fully featured phone like this, but sometimes its safer or more convenient to go hands-free. The T609 gives you voice activated dialing, a speakerphone, plus Bluetooth wireless communications. Clip one of those little Bluetooth headsets on your ear and you can put the T609 back in your pocket or bag.
You might think that having such high technology in such a small and lightweight (3.3 oz.) cell phone is going to drain the battery so fast you'll need to have your phone plugged-in all the time. Not so. The powerful Li Ion battery in the T609 gives you up to 250 minutes of talk time, or over 4 hours. Standby time is up to 150 hours or over 6 days away from the charger.
