Samsung Extends Reach to Youth Audience With Launch of the 'Corby' Family

London (ots/PRNewswire)

- With the Launch of Corby(TXT) and Corby(PRO), Samsung Quickly
Strengthens its Position in the Youth Market
Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, (LSE: SMSN) a leading mobile phone
provider, has rapidly followed the successful launch of the Samsung
Corby (model:  S3650), its first mobile handset designed to support
the highly connected  lifestyles of today's younger mobile users, by
announcing the launch of the  Corby family - two new mobile phones
designed around the Corby concept which  further help meet the varied
needs of the youth market.
The launch of the new handsets, called Samsung Corby(TXT) and
Samsung Corby(PRO), fits perfectly within the company's strategy of
'designing a wealth of handsets to match every different lifestyle'.
Each new handset has a specific focus on key features including
messaging, multimedia entertainment and business functionality; both
also have the original Corby's trademarks of bold colours, pop-style
contours and stand-out curved body design.
"The Corby family is clearly in-line with our ongoing strategy of
developing different mobiles to match different lifestyle needs,"
explained JK Shin, Executive Vice President and Head of Samsung
Electronics' Mobile Communications Division. "The focus with the
original Corby and now with the Corby family has been to offer our
consumers choice: choice over the colour of the handset, choice over
how they stay connected and choice over the features and
functionality which best suit their unique personality and
communication requirements."
