Special Preview: Samsung Soul

The Soul Within

The Soul Within

The U900 or preferably known as the Soul was heavily promoted as part of a major advertising campaign initiated by none other than its maker, Samsung and unveiled in spectacular fashion at the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. As we found out, the Soul is Samsung's flagship model for 2008, so it's quite understandable why the Korean giant has placed so much focus on this handset. If you're intrigued by the origins of the Soul's name, here's a little background information:

  • Soul was named to honor the completion of its successful "Ultra Edition" series.
  • Soul is an abbreviation of "The Spirit Of Ultra".

With that said, we shan't keep you waiting, so here are our first impressions on our hands-on experience with the Soul:-

Just to air out our views, pictures simply do not do the Soul justice. When we first laid eyes on the Soul from the stock pictures, we were fickle over its looks. Once we had it in our hands, the Soul revealed itself in its true aesthetic form.

Here's the Soul slider phone with its number pad shown in full.

Housed in a full metal body and slim body design, the Soul appears more masculine whereas when you compare it to the prettier U600 or the U700 (no offence to the male users out there), they are touted more towards the female population.
