This new ultra-slim flip phone features easily accessible MP3 music keys, exchangeable front cover & battery lid available in as many as 5 colors in-box, and a keypad with separated alphanumeric keys- a significant ergonomic enhancement from previous generation keypads in this price range. Bound to become one of Samsung's best-sellers, the SCH-R600 has a subdued but elegant ID that complements the lifestyles of a broad range of mid-tier users without being too bold or overwhelming.
