U.S. Ain’t Got No (Samsung) Soul.

samsungsoul.jpgRepresenting the “ultimate essence of mobile” in this stunning slider, the Samsung Soul has pretty much everything you need in a handset—except, well, availability in the U.S. We pleaded with Samsung to see if this divine device would be coming to the states; the sad response? Don’t hold your breath. But don’t let that stop you from drooling over the specs. The Soul features a touch-sensitive navigation pad below a 2.2-inch QVGA screen, reminiscent of the LG Venus in its app-specific, function-shifting capabilities: You get one set of “buttons” for phone calls, another for music, and another for the camera, which sports a 5-megapixel sensor, face detection, and image stabilization. As if that’s not enough, this tri-band phone can access the Internet with 7.2-Mbps HSDPA speeds. Lucky him, LAPTOP’s editor in chief Mark Spoonauer got a bit of hands-on time with the Soul at CTIA Wireless earlier this month.

    I don’t know why it’s not being introduced to the U.S. it’s the best phone I’ve seen for a slider. I would buy it, but imports are really expensive and I don’t know anyone going to Europe anytime soon.

    I own a samsung soul and it is by far the best slider sold and importing it is not expensive at all if you get it off ebay and you have a cell phone service with SIM cards. If you have a sim card i would highly recommend getting it. I got mine off of ebay brand new unlocked and the final cost with shipping was around 270 american dollars. So totally well worth it.

    found this on the web ” well that sim works with your network, so if you have a different phone that you are able to take out a sim and put it in a different phone then yes, its like you updated your phone, so it will work ( that’s if you’re able to take out the sim)
