Samsung Corby sounds like a stuffed animal, is actually a cheap touchphone

The rumored S3650 Corby from Samsung has just been made totally, 100 percent official -- and no, it's not the name of a puppy, a type of cheese, or an Australian exclamation. Instead, the Corby is a youth-oriented full touch handset that puts an emphasis on social networking (it's got integrated support for Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace, among others) and low cost over frivolities like 3G and a battery cover that won't burn your retinas. A reasonable sticker price is further assured thanks to the 2.8-inch QVGA display and a mere 2 megapixel cam, and considering the unlocked retail price of around €150 -- $215 or so -- they've more or less accomplished their goal. Look for it to hit in Europe later this month.
