Compare E250 Blue Deals
The E250 in gun-metal blue was Samsung’s first foray into the slide phone market. As an entry-level slide phone with nicely bevelled edges and tactile coating, it remains one of the best in its price range. At 99 x 50 x 14 mm, it is comfortable and compact, weighing a mere 80g.
The 2-inch screen has a modest 128 x 160 pixel resolution for showing the results of a VGA camera with CMOS sensor, 4 x digital zoom and video (up to an hour’s worth at 15 fps).
Downloads and internet interaction is via GPRS/EDGE, with Bluetooth for short-range wireless data transfer between compatible devices, such as a laptop. It supports SMS, MMS and email messaging.
Utilities include uTrack software that automatically sends an SMS message to a pre-designated number to alert you if the SIM card has be changed or replaced. The E250 has a decent-sounding MP3 player and FM radio; other handy features include a built-in speakerphone and a voice memo recorder.
It has 13 Mbytes’ internal memory that can be augmented by a microSD card. Battery life is rated at 250 hours of standby time and five hours of talk time.
