Samsung S5150 Diva Coming on January

The Samsung S5150 Diva first appeared as the Olivia during the promotions for the Samsung Corby (Corby is also called Genio in the UK). This evidently female-focused phone has now been formally announced with the Diva tag and is one of the devices
in the series (the other being the S7070).

It is not surprising that Samsung is still targeting the GSM market. For the same reason that Nokia is still producing cheap 2G devices -there is a demand. Plenty of people still do not fuss about having a mobile phone with lots of features; or a
high price tag. This market would gladly buy a cheap device that has plenty of useful features. With the S5150's features and style, Samsung definitely delivered a great GSM device with this one.

Women in Mind

A woman's phone has to be more than just good looks, after all, like real women, even the pretty ones get boring when they are hollow on the inside. Samsung has chosen to deliver both form and function with their Diva series. It would not be surprising to know that it is women who came up with the features in the
device as we can see that both the Fake Calls feature and the Etiquette Mode function will see a lot of practical usage.

Etiquette Mode is simply a quick silent-switch. Most devices will require you to navigate a little in order to change the profile settings from loud to discreet to silent. Of course, this will require that the user be looking at the phone screen.
There are however moments that would restrict you from fishing out your phone from a purse or even glancing at it from your pocket. This is where the etiquette mode comes in, by allowing you to instantly switch to silent; you can save yourself from
the embarrassment of having a phone ring at an inconvenient time.

Fake Calls is perfect when you want calls to get you out of an inconvenient time. If you feel that a quick meeting will extend well past lunch, the common solution is to have a friend "stage" a phone call in order for you to get out of the meeting. Fake
Calls is instant, allowing you to achieve the same results without the need of a friend to initiate a call. Of course, there are plenty of other ways to use this function, but the essence is the same, giving women an excuse for themselves, either temporarily or fully.

Phone Specs

The Samsung S5150 Diva will come with a 2.2 inch TFT display. The screen may seem small, but a close look at the phone shows that it makes the most of the upper part of the device. It has a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels and will have a color capacity of 16 million colors. The device also comes with a built-in 5 mega pixel camera with auto focus and video capturing capability (QVGA quality).

Coming in January

The phone is expected to arrive on retail by January 2010 in Russia, Ukraine, Netherlands, and in Europe. No word yet if any carriers will be getting this device.
