Representing 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. Images and full specs are below.
