Samsung pumps out additional handsets at the Barcelona trade show.

At technology trade shows, Samsung has a history of going all out. While most manufacturers introduce maybe five phones tops, Samsung usually unveils double that number. And as 3GSM closes this week in Barcelona, Samsung again showed that it thinks "less is more" is just plain rubbish. We showed you six new models earlier in the week, and now here are five more fresh out of the Samsung labs.

Designwise, the SGH-P110 is the most interesting of the bunch. Though we were just about to sound the death knell for swivel phones, Samsung attempts this unique swivel-flip design. The tri-band (GSM 900/1800/1900) SGH-P110 offers a full QWERTY keyboard, stereo Bluetooth, a music player, and a VGA camera. Slider phones continue to be a major Samsung theme as evidenced by three more models: The SGH-E840 world phone (GSM 850/900/1800/1900) comes with a 2-megapixel camera, a music/video player, and stereo Bluetooth. The tri-band (GSM 900/1800/1900) SGH-E830 has similar features but adds an FM radio. And the tri-band (900/1800/1900) SGH-E740 throws in external music keys as well.

Last but not least is the SGH-E590. While its candy-bar design may look a bit dull, don't judge a book by its cover. Inside the tri-band (900/1800/1900) handset you'll find a 3-megapixel camera, an FM radio, a music/video player, stereo Bluetooth, and a microSD card slot.
