Samsung B7620 Giorgio Armani

GSMarena have acquired some nice photos of the new Giorgio Armani phone from Samsung.

The Samsung B7620 is the third device released in the Armani range and is targeted at those designer business types to look cool with there expensive suits!



The device itself is the colour gold which is defiantly different but in the designer world it needs to stand out. Apart from the colour it actually looks quite a nice phone.

B7620 beside Omnia Pro B7610

As you will see in the above picture the B7620 seems to be based on the New Omnia Pro 7610 and has some nice specs to match:

  • HSDPA 7.2Mbps
  • Slide out and tilt QWERTY
  • 3.5 inch AMOLED screen
  • Windows Mobile 6.5 with Touch Wiz UI
  • 8Gb internal storage with extenal memory up to 16Gb
  • 5MP Camera with auto focus and dual LED flash
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with A2DP, A-GPS and TV-Out
  • 1500 mAh Battery

The B7620 has a few specs which are better than the Omnia Pro, such as 8Gb internal memory compared to 1Gb in the Omnia. Also the screen tilts like on the HTC Touch Pro2, nice!

Although prices are not confirmed yet I would imagine that sim free this device will be about £700.00 which seems a lot to pay just because Giorgio Armani designed it. Each to there own though!

T3’s Windows Mobile 6.5 round up

Untitled picture

T3 has been working for a while on group test of four of the most popular Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets on the market. Weighing up the pros and cons and it makes for an interesting read. Check out the highlights after the break. Confusingly they have a picture of the Touch Pro2 over the Touch2 section. Even from the review it is difficult to judge as to whether with are reviewing the Touch Pro2 and Touch2, however given the lack of mention of the Qwerty keyboard I guess they mean the Touch2 and have merely posted the wrong picture.
