Samsung Corby Pop

Samsung’s scaled down version of its existing S3650 Corby, the C3510 Corby Pop has made its official appearance at the Samsung India website.

Listed under the ‘Coming Soon’ section, it is clear that Samsung is not leaving any stone unturned with garnering as much sales as possible wit the Corby brand. Incidentally, Samsung is also launching a better spec-ed version of the Corby plus a Wi-Fi enabled version as well. The idea it seems is to cater to almost all kinds of consumers ranging from a person who would prefer a cheaper device to the one who would have wanted a few more extra features in the phone.

As for the Corby Pop, it will be a downgraded version of the Corby (not by much though). Almost all the features are the same starting from the 2.8-inch display, integrated FM radio and the UI. The camera though has taken a beating and has now dropped to a 1.3 megapixel unit. But then, the Corby isn’t far better off with its 2 megapixel cam as well. Now, the reason for the existence of the Corby Pop is obvious – Sales.

The Samsung Corby S3650 has been a hit in the Indian market thanks to its price. Samsung is just capitalising on the same and has just made the phone even cheaper. The Corby POP is expected to be priced at around the Rs. 7,000 which, is a very good price for a decent touchscreen phone.
