Samsung’s Corby Pro and showing off the rest of the family

The Complete Corby Line!

Hi folks. Here it is. QWERTY is sexx-y! At least that’s what Samsung thinks, and they’re pushing this line, with the Corby Pro as their ace. Here’s a brief rundown + pricing of all of these units.

From left to right:
B3210 – PHP 6,990 (Corby TEXT)
B3310 – PHP 5,290 (their low end QWERTY for young people)
B5310 – PHP 11,990 (Corby Pro)
B3410 – PHP 7,590 (Corby Plus)

The Corby Pro is a sure best seller for this year as it is by far the most affordable mobile with a QWERTY layout, GPS and WiFi connectivity. You need to have a SIM card inserted for the phone’s wireless connections (WiFi) to work. Apart from the aesthetic difference, the cheaper Corby doesn’t have WiFi, has a 2MP camera (3MP for the CorbyPro), no 3G, and no GPS.

I like the Corby Pro, except for one thing (LOL).

The B3210 takes the form of a traditional Nokia and BlackBerry design but its pretty much the same thing under the hood. As the name suggests the Corby TEXT is really for the SMS savvy, removing the extra step of sliding up your phone to reveal a keypad. No WiFi here. No 3G too. Bummer. This phone would have rocked with WiFi (it uses EDGE).

The B3310 on the other hand is a very basic no 3G, no WiFi phone fit for the budget conscious.

Is the Pro finally out? I’ve been waiting for this since the Corby line came out. The Pro is definitely a winner in this circle, the most affordable slide-out querty to date that doesnt suck eggs. Any feedback on performance?
