SEOUL, South Korea Samsung Electronics Co. has unveiled a new mobile phone that features some of the sleek design and functions of Apple`s much-hyped iPhone.
Samsung F700 third-generation (3G) technology is considerably faster than the iPhone`s EDGE system, and its 5-megapixel camera with autofocus outclasses the iPhone`s 2-megapixel camera.
Samsung`s Ultra Smart F700 also includes VibeTonz, a vibration system introduced in the recent W559 that simulates tactile feedback to touchscreen presses. On the iPhone, many reviewers complained about the lack of feedback in typing on such a small surface with your thumbs.
Samsung`s F700 also includes a slide-out keyboard to accommodate typing and Web browsing.
