As is its usual custom, Samsung has made quite a killing at the GSMA World Congress. Though its announcements aren't quite as exciting as those from Nokia or Sony Ericsson , it certainly made a respectable showing. Besides its new Soul , the company also unveiled the G810 and the P960.

Samsung SGH-G810: The G810 offers a slider design similar to the Samsung SGH-G800. Its feature set is also similar and includes a 5-megapixel camera with auto-focus, a 3x optical zoom, a xenon flash, GPS navigation, Bluetooth, TV out, USB 2.0, a 3.5mm headset jack, Geo-tagging for photos, Google search and Gmail, multiformat audio and video support, and Wi-Fi. There's a 2.6-inch color display and it all runs on a Symbian S60, third edition operating system. The SGH-G810 is part of Samsung's new "Infotainment" category, though we're not really sure what that means.
