Following the release of the Samsung Tobi, a curious handset designed and forged for children, the company has a new, similar device ready to be released, the Samsung Betty Boop which is also targeting kids.
The handset has been released in France through Bouygues Telecom as a limited edition handset. The phone itself comes with modest features, however the targeted consumer does not really care much for high-end specs, yet kids might be impressed by the Betty Boop signature.
Anyway, the handset comes with GSM/GRPS/EDGE frequency standards connectivity support. The display has support for 65K colors. Additionally the handset comes with a VGA camera, MMS capabilities, and MP3 music player and FM Radio. The handset also supports a microSD memory card slot for additional storage space.
The handset’s battery is not great at all. The 500mAh battery may provide only 3 hours of talk time and 192 hours of standby time. The handset’s measurements are 68 x 44.5 x 18mm and weights about 70 grams.
The Samsung Betty Boop is available for purchase on Bouygues Telecom’s official website for about 129 Euros. However, the handset may be purchased for just 1 euro with a two-year contract agreement.
