Samsung today announced its launch of the SCH-B570 in Korea, a cutting-edge phone that can play music and mobile TV anywhere.
Offering a built-in 8GB hard disc drive, the B570 allows users the world's largest storage capacity for a handset, storing about 1,600 MP3 files (4MB/song), 16 Personal Media Player (PMP) movies (400MB/file), or more than 20,000 digital photos (300KB/file).
The B570 music phone offers sophisticated audio functions such as '5.1-channel virtual stereo' and 'echo effect' to obtain the same level of high-quality sound as a 5.1 channel home theater system. Also supporting 'picture in picture' (PIP) function, the B570 lets users watch satellite digital multimedia broadcasts and PMP movies simultaneously.
Another distinctive feature for the B570 is the 'Golf manager.' Letting users search for golf course information in Korea, players figure out strategies for playing any course, while managing the score and calculating the necessary driving distance from a particular tee.
Samsung also presented the 'motion recognition capability' by introducing the new 'morning call motion detector snooze alarm.' When the alarm clock rings, users can turn it off simply by shaking the phone, then alarm will automatically alert again a few minutes later.
The SCH-B570 will be released in Korea by end of this month and the price will be around $800.
