Samsung Haptic touch screen phone launched

We first noticed the touchscreen craziness at 3GSM this year, when Sony Ericsson announced a few touchscreen-based devices. And considering how successful the iPhone has been, I can't blame them.

Anyway, Samsung today launched its new Haptic phone in South Korea.

The Haptic, which is the Greek word for 'touch', features a 3.2-inch touchscreen, a 2 megapixel camera, 22 different kinds of vibrations, full Internet browser and Bluetooth 2.0.

It also features terrestrial digital TV reception, which will really let users take advantage of the widescreen. All this, packed in a 12.1 mm thick device.

The Samsung Haptic will be sold only in South Korea for about $750. Check out the ad below.

by d: on Feb 15, 2009

why are all the good phones released in every country except the U.S.?

by samantha on Feb 22, 2009

australia?

by hey on Feb 28, 2009

Get the Samsung Omnia - it's the same thing pretty much.

by Chris on Mar 3, 2009

The Haptic phone is in America. You just need to go to an Asian phone dealer and ask for it. They can get it for you if they dont have it, trust me. And the good thing about it is that you can use it here as it is still a GSM.

by u-know on Mar 22, 2009

cant be like that...... i already waiting this half year......just sell in korea??l love this phone so much...any one know where can buy this phone??

by Gogo on Apr 14, 2009

by rea on Apr 23, 2009

saudi arabia also...or better, the whole world! =)) nice phone btw.

by dangg... on Apr 27, 2009

That fone is balla.
i want one.
i wish they sold them in america
i dont think i could afford them at 750$ though
BOTTOM LINE:
1.make em' in america
2. make em' cheap
3. Give me one

by Arie on Apr 28, 2009

this phone is the same as Samsung Tocco, in Europe (:
except the Tocco features a 5 megapixel cam, but otherwise it's pretty much the same.
I just got mine in pink, can't wait to have it in my hands!
(going to pimp it with tvxq :'D)

by jane on May 12, 2009

does this phone got in Malaysia?

by Daisy on May 12, 2009

If I bought this phone in Korea, would it work in North America? Do they do roaming in South Korea?? I Live in Canada and I really want this phone...

by Angeli Frencillo on Jun 3, 2009

This is really weird. I hope they sell some in the Philippines. It would be an awesome gift for my 18th birthday. Such an amazing invention, better than the bulky iPhone. :D

If anyone knows where this can be availed, please do post it. I'll wait for it to come here, and I ain't buying it if it's too expensive; I'll be waiting for its price to reduce to 10,000 or something much cheaper, if not, I'll buy myself and LG Cookie instead. Hahahaha. I love this phone from Boys Over Flowers. And its features are killing me.

by shara. . on Jun 11, 2009

weeee.. i like that phone... wish its also available here in the Philippines..

i want to buy one......

by by hanny on Jun 14, 2009
