Samsung P300 Unlocked GSM Phone
In photographs, the Samsung P300 tends to look like a 1970's pocket calculator, but in the flesh it looks a whole lot better. The matt metallic case needs to be seen for its true beauty to be appreciated.
It's fair to say that the P300 is a unique phone. It looks quite unlike any other phone on the market. At just 9mm thick it takes over from the Motorola L6 as the thinnest mobile phone available in the US. Hold it next to a Motorola RAZR, and the RAZR starts to look bulky! Samsung say that it's the same size as a credit card, but we've never seen a credit card that thick! However, putting that to one side, we have to love the P300.
Feature-wise, the P300 is virtually the same as the ever-popular D500, with an excellent 1.3 megapixel camera, video camera and MP3 player. It's display is the same as the D500 (262k colours) and it has standard features like high-quality 64-voice MP3 ringtones, a speakerphone, email and triband. Memory is great, with 80 Mbytes.
