Almost like the old

The Corby range has been enjoying attention for quite a while now. Samsung’s affordable range of touchscreen, multimedia and social networking ready handsets are doing well and more installments in the series have been cropping up, like the Corby Pro B3510.

It’s exactly the same as its predecessor on most counts but it’s twice the size in depth to accommodate the full QWERTY slide out (very smooth pop slider) keypad and it weighs more. It is bulky and a bit heavy as well, but that’s okay.

The music player has been upgraded to include a few more EQ presets. Audio quality and overall output is really good. The handset’s FM radio also turned out to be a great asset with god reception and less static.

The picture quality of the camera is quite good.

What the CorbyPRO seriously lacks is good battery life. On an average, the PRO provided about three hours.

With a price tag of Rs 11, 450 (MOP) the Corby PRO is the cheapest touchscreen handset in the Indian market that manages to successfully incorporate both Wi-Fi and GPS with a slide out QWERTY keypad. The PRO is a great handset for the youth segment. Its only drawback is a slightly diminished battery capacity.
