Let the MP3 play

On Tuesday the company released the SGH M-100, a mobile phone that combines a Global System for Mobile communication phone with an MP3 audio player.

The M-100 contains a dedicated key that lets the user switch between music and a phone conversation. When a call is completed, the system returns the user to the point at which the music stopped, Samsung says in a statement.

The handset contains a 32MB flash memory chip and can store up to 25 minutes of music, or approximately eight songs, according to Samsung.

The M-100 is aimed at the business market as well as the youth market, according to Samsung. It will be offered in the United Kingdom in the third quarter through a cobranding deal with Virgin Mobile telecoms. The phone is expected to cost $US480.

Samsung also unveiled at the CommunicAsia show earlier this week something it described as the world's smallest wireless application protocol mobile phone. The SGH-A110 weighs 3.1 ounces and has a six-line text display, with a built-in calendar, to-do list, and calculator.

The third new mobile phone released on Tuesday is the SPH-N101, which supports both CDMA (code division multiple access) and AMPS (advanced mobile phone system) modes, and is primarily aimed at the youth market with features such as a selection of 20 ring tones, image and melody downloads, and fashion accessories.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
