>> Hi, I'm Nicole Lee, associate editor for www.cnet.com.
>> And in this box right here is the brand new Samsung Armani, which is a design by Giorgio. So we open the box, it's all black, very sleek. And [inaudible] in the box. It is as you can see a very slim and compact touch-screen handset [assumed spelling]. Everything is done via the touch screen, so you touch it, to navigate [inaudible] the menu, to dial, to text. But even with heptic feedback [assumed spelling] , which means whenever you touch something, it sort of gives little tiny vibrations so that you know that you've selected something. There's even a cool cover flow [inaudible] featured on the front. If you swipe your finger, [inaudible] it actually switches before the calendar and the clock. There's a built in music player. There's also a camera, a camcorder in here. And there's also a web browser. Even though we like the Armani's touch-screen interface, it doesn't always work the way we expect it would work. And swiping doesn't always work, because it doesn't always select when we want it to be selected. And, photo quality, even though it's 3-megapixel camera, it's a little bit mediocre. Photos seemed a little bit overcast. Also, you have to use the virtual alphanumeric keypad to type out text messages. There's no on screen QWERTY keyboard, which we would have liked for a touch screen [inaudible]. Aside from that though, it's a very sleek, very sexy phone. You will definitely turn heads with this phone. My name is Nicole Lee.

The Samsung Jet is a powerful multimedia phone with decent performance and a few welcome user interface upgrades. But don't mistake it for a smartphone.
The Samsung Array sticks to basic phone features, but the user-friendly design and satisfying performance outweigh the disappointing camera and Web browser.
With a 5-inch or 4-inch screen (your choice!), this media player is essentially a sexy Galaxy phone--except for the part about the phone.
The Samsung T10 won't satisfy audio purists, but users who value lots of features, a fun interface, and a player that will turn heads should give it a look.
Why plug in your phone to charge when you can just set it down and forget it? Sharon Vaknin shows you how to transplant parts from the Palm Pixi into your S3 in this tricky tutorial.
Samsung finally took the wraps of the U.S. version of the Galaxy S II at a special event in New York. AT&T and T-Mobile customers will be able to get their hands on the Android super phone this fall, but CNET has a First Look of the models here. See what's in store.
While not the most powerful smartphone on the market, the Samsung Omnia II features an improved user interface and a richer multimedia experience to make it a worthy upgrade over its predecessor and one of the best Windows Mobile devices on the market.
The Samsung Impression isn't perfect, but it ranks high on our list as a messaging and multimedia phone.
The Samsung Behold is a sleek touch-screen phone with a range of features and an easy-to-use interface.
The Samsung SGH-D900, the "black carbon," offers a wealth of high-end features in a sexy, thin slider design.
