Samsung Corby Speed breaks "fashion jackets" for odd phone names

5:26 AM Edited by Blony

We still think "Corby" alone is an odd name for a phone, but Samsung liked it enough to spin it into a whole low-cost series. Today, that series grew another notch with the introduction of the Corby Speed, which sounds more like a comic book hero (or possibly an overrated Olympic slalom skier with GQ good looks) than it does a modest touchscreen handset. It looks a whole lot like some of the other Corbys you may have seen out there, but the key difference here is that we've got Open Mobile-compliant CDMA on board, meaning the phone can be toted among India's CDMA carriers much as you would an unlocked GSM set. It's got a 2 megapixel cam, FM radio, 2.8-inch display, and your choice of three "fashion jackets" -- black, white, and yellow -- and if you're interested, you can nab it for 10,300 rupees (about $223) as long as you're willing to make the trek to South Asia.
