SAMSUNG Unveils a 3D Game Phone with Joystick

Samsung unveils a uniquely designed 3D Game Phone that uses the company's established clamshell design. The game phone (SCH-V450) which comes installed with 3 games, such as ZioGolf (golf game) and Metalion (shooting game), allows users to get a full and enjoyable mobile gaming experience as the games are in three dimensions and can be heard through dual speakers. Also, users can download and enjoy 3D games which are specially designed for Samsung 3D game phone via Samsung Fun Club.

The keypad for functions such as menu and ok extends out when the phone is closed making it easier to use than conventional folder-type phones. The V450 also offers users a joystick on the extension for a more real and convenient mobile gaming experience. In addition, users are able to extend the memory storage by inserting a memory card into a slot that is on the side of the phone. Upon purchase, the phone comes with a 32MB Memory Stick Duo.

The V450 allows users to play MP3 files without opening the folder as all command functions are on the extended keypad. While playing music, users are able to control several functions like pause, skip, revival and random choice, and alter the screen image that suits the mood and speed of the music.

With the V450, users are able to record up to 2 and half hours of images as well as send images by phone.
