First Look: Samsung Highnote

1:05 /

From CTIA 2008, Kent German takes a look at the Samsung Highnote, a well-designed music phone that includes Sprint's one-click interface.

[ Music ] >> Hi, I'm Kent German, here to show you the Samsung Highnote. It's a music phone but it has some interesting features that I wanna show you. Has a slider design, actually a dual slider design. So like a normal slider phone, you'd go right up like that. There you see the keypad and then if you put it back down and you press it down, you can see you have a speaker right here. Kind of a cool thing. Of course, it is music centric so nice to have the speaker there. One thing that's also interesting about this phone is it has Sprint's new one-click interphase 'cause I can get one-click access to a lot of features. So, you have a certain number of tiles they're called, little square icons and you can program it yourself. There is a scroll wheel on this phone. You can actually move it just around like that. So, it's a great feature to be able to scroll through really long lists like your long song list or maybe a long list of text messages or emails or anything like that. You can see the camera lens back here. This 2 point mega pixel doesn't have a flash or self portrait mirror. Nice, well designed music phone. It does come in the blue that you see here and also comes in red as well. I'm Kent German and this is the Samsung Highnote. [ Music ]
