Probably you might have read the title to this post and thought phones that have their own sex? Phone genitalia? Oh, actually, was that just me? Nevermind….
Tech.co.uk has a story about a couple of new Samsung phones (SGH-L310 and SGH-L320) that apparently are for “fashion conscious users” – or, you could suggest, mainly girls?
What makes these phones lady-magnets are supposedly a few things:
- Hardware design (see pics)
- Software apps including a shopping list, perfume guide, calorie counter
- Distinctive patterns and hidden icons for incoming calls and MMS
To be fair, I can kinda see Tech.co.uk’s point of view – you could argue there are some stereotypes here, but personally I think the bigger issues for any consumer with these devices, is that spec of them isn’t that great – 2MP camera, small screens – need I go on?
Anyhow, I suppose you need a diverse product range to target those niches, and Samsung have a handset for pretty much every network, bearer, continent, and technology – that, you can’t argue with!
