Attacking the midrange market the Samsung S5600 is a member of the new affordable touchscreen gang

From what we saw, the Samsung S5600 seems quite fit and prepared for the midrange touchscreen race.

Comparison to the LG Cookie - a handset which we really enjoyed - is inevitable. The Samsung S5600 is certainly compact enough to stay in the game. The competitive edge comes from HSDPA support, the camera flash, smile detection and GPS geotagging plus the benefits of having an actual GPS receiver aboard. All that however is at the expense of the smaller, lower resolution screen and the lack of a stylus support for handwriting recognition....

All that however is at the expense of the smaller, lower resolution screen and the lack of a stylus support for handwriting recognition.

But as always, in this segment price is king, so before we see any actual numbers on a price tag, we're just plain talking. But if Samsung somehow manage to squeeze the S5600 within the 200 euro price range, we just may have ourselves a winner.

Budget touchscreen phone with HSDPA support

from CNET

The Samsung S5600 is the spiritual successor to the company's popular Tocco Lite touchscreen phone. This update uses the same TouchWiz menu system, but the innards have been upgraded to support HSDPA for faster data downloads. That's good news when you want to download music tracks or videos....

The Samsung S5600 is the spiritual successor to the company's popular Tocco Lite touchscreen phone. This update uses the same TouchWiz menu system, but the innards have been upgraded to support HSDPA for faster data downloads. That's good news when you want to download music tracks or videos.

The Samsung S5600 can't compete with the likes of the iPhone or the Hero, but one look at its price tag will tell you that it's not aimed at the same market. Instead, it seeks to offer a decent touchscreen experience at a rock-bottom price. Thankfully, it succeeds admirably.
