Samsung W629. Samsung Armani becomes "Count Dracula"
It looks like Armani brand does not mean that much in China. Or least it means less then a mystic character of Count Dracula.
At least that’s what Samsung seems to be thinking with the introduction of the Chinese version of Samsung Armani P520 phone.
Dubbed “Count Dracula”, Samsung W629 kept a lot from it’s European predecessor, including cool looks, full touchscreen interface, big 2.6″ display, 3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth A2DP Stereo and GPRS connectivity.
But Samsung Anycall W629 “Count Dracula” phone has been adjusted for unique Chinese mobile needs. It’s got a little fatter then Armani handset and, just like Samsung W619, became dual network CDMA/GSM hybrid phone. It now features both GSM (900/1800 MHz) and CDMA 1x (800 MHz) connectivity.
For now there are no announced plans to market this phone outside China. However, with small adjustments, as Samsung W620 it might be a great phone for countries like U.S and Russia, where both CDMA and GSM standards are widely used.
