Samsung has released the latest member of its Genio range of mobile phones – the Genio slide. The follow up to the Genio touch and Genio qwerty will be available exclusively on Vodafone for the first month.
The Genio slide is a mash up of the two previous models in the range, as it features a slide out Qwerty keyboard as well as a full-touch screen, “giving people the best of both worlds”.
“We’ve enjoyed huge success with Genio touch and Genio qwerty and, as a hybrid of the two devices; we know it will be a hit with the target audience,” said Mark Mitchinson, vice president of Samsung Mobile UK & Ireland, who is aiming the device at the younger market.
