Samsung Corby Lindy M5650 (3)LISBON, Portugal – The Samsung S3650 Corby is an appropriate choice when looking for a touchscreen phone on the market and considering price-features ratio. Taking this advantage a little further, unofficially a similar handset had been leaked, the Samsung S3650W Corby, introducing Wi-Fi connectivity. It seems that this wasn’t enough, and in order to complete the family, Samsung just released the Samsung M5650 Lindy.

Coming out from nowhere to the stores, the Samsung Lindy does not only compare to its siblings, but it exceeds them by adding HSDPA connectivity up to 7.2mbps, an improved camera of 3 megapixel and a secondary camera for videocall. This new features gives the Samsung Lindy connectivity power which was its siblings weak point. On the physical appearance, Lindy is only a hair measuring bigger than the other handsets, and for the UI area, Samsung’s TouchWiz interface is now on the Samsung Lindy bringing new features such as one-finger zoom and Smart Unlock along with it.

Making its own way to the shelves, Samsung Lindy makes its segment market competitors tremble, such as the Samsung S5230 Star (and the Wi-Fi version S5230W), LG KP500 Cookie, LG GD510 Pop and the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic. On the last one, by comparing their features, there aren’t broad differences. The Nokia 5530 lacks 3G connectivity giving the lead to the Samsung Lindy on the connectivity category, although having a 3.5mm audio jack the Nokia 5530 has a big advantage on the multimedia category.

The cost of the Samsung Lindy today at Portuguese network TMN at promotion is EUR 149 (US$220). However, the price could rise up to EUR 159 (US$234) when the promotion period ends. Spanish site Fresma Logistic offers it as well, although the price isn’t available, neither is the “order” button.
