Samsung Makes Sliding Speaker Mobile

Part phone, part ghetto blaster...? Oh no.

Since the superb slider format was introduced I’ve seen it adapted for all sorts of things, but this is a new one on me…

Revealed by roving Czech site Mobil Idnes, the Samsung ‘i450’ is a dual slider with a difference: one way does indeed reveal the keypad, but the other unveils a large external speaker for some truly impressive annoying in public places.

Actually, Samsung hasn’t revealed the speaker specs to tell us just ”how annoying” the i450 will be, but be warned.

Elsewhere the i450 appears pretty straightforward. It offers quad band GSM and HSDPA (3.6Mbps) international travel friendliness, a 2MP camera with a VGAer for video calls, a large 2.3in 262k colour QVGA screen, Bluetooth 2.0 and USB2.0 and a gig of integrated memory which can be expanded via a microSD slot.

With such a hefty looking speaker I’d be keen to know some dimensions for the i450, but I’m guessing at worst it can simply be hoisted onto a shoulder and carried around the street…

Samsung hasn’t officially announced the i450 yet, so release dates and pricing are right out. Something I suspect the public’s ears are grateful for.
