>> Hi, I'm Kent German, senior editor for www.cnet.com.
>> Today, we'll take a first look at the Samsung Mantra. This is a new phone for Virgin Mobile. A lot of Virgin Mobile phones tend to be pretty basic, not a whole lot of features, really designed for communication. The Mantra's no exception, very simple design. It is pretty attractive, though. I like that black color with the silver, and the silver stripe here in the middle. [Inaudible] its full color. Also, have a camera lens right above, no flash or self portrait mirror, but not a huge deal, especially on a Virgin Mobile phone. Inside, standard display, not the greatest resolution, but colorful, bright and perfectly suitable for a phone like this. The navigation system, menu interface is very easy to use. Keypad buttons and navigations array. These are very easy to use, also very big, so I can really get in there and maneuver around, easily. Inside, the phone doesn't have a whole lot of features, you find all of Virgin's Mobile's web features, of course, a personal organizer, speaker phone, messaging, really just a phone built for communication.
>> I'm Kent German, and this is the Samsung Mantra. ^M00:00:58 [ Music ]
