The Samsung Blast captures two cell phone style trends: thin profiles and slider designs.
The Blast has an attractive display and well-designed navigation controls.
The Blast is just half an inch wide. The left spine holds a microSD card slot.
The Blast has a brilliant red color on its back side.
In an unusual move for a slider phone, the Blast's keypad buttons are raised above the surface of the phone.
The Blast's compact size lets you slide it easily into a pocket or bag.
The camera lens is exposed when the slider is up. There's a self-portrait mirror, but no flash.
The Blast's SureType keyboard lets you compose e-mails and messages quickly.
