Samsung’s Rex Series invades Nokia’s homeground


Is the sand slipping through their hands, or should Nokia be proud of inspiring the research and development teams of the world in their desire to find a market among the Indian consumer?
Samsung’s Rex Series invades Nokia’s homeground
Like Nokia’s Asha series, the phones will still preserve umpteen entertainment features such as: 10 Gameloft games as well as popular IM services like Gtalk, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook and Twitter to name a few.
Recently, Samsung announced that they were prepared to release four new phones that resemble Nokia’s Asha series, under a new series called Rex.  They have come up with four new models called the Rex 90, Rex 80, Rex 70 and Rex 60. 

According to an IBN-Live report, the Samsung Rex series has been developed in India and will first be released in the Indian markets. In a price range that they have estimated as anything between Rs 4280 to Rs 6490; these devices will not be run on an Android operating system, but the phones will operate Java software. Nonetheless, all phones will have have Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface and access to the Samsung App Store.

Like Nokia’s Asha series, the phones will still preserve umpteen entertainment features such as: 10 Gameloft games as well as popular IM services like Gtalk, Yahoo Messenger, Facebook and Twitter to name a few. The Rex 90 has been pitched as the more expensive alternative with a 3-inch capacitive screen that supports Wi-Fi connectivity and 15 hours of talktime. 
Next in line is the Rex 80, which is a dual-SIM phone like the Rex 90 but instead of a 3.2 megapixel camera it has a 3 megapixel camera. The Rex 70 has a 2 megapixel camera and a smaller, three inch, screen like the Rex 80. Last in line is the Rex 60 that has its features further compromised; a 2.8-inch display and a 1.3 megapixel camera.

All four phones will support EGDE for 2G data support and are fully touch-screen devices. Also, the devices will let users sync their mail and have the option of Push mail as well.

While Apple and Micromax are doling out expensive phones by the batch, Samsung’s trying to play both, budget and luxury fields. Whether or not Samsung will be able to penetrate the budget phone market that Nokia has dominated for the past decade is questionable but the increasing amount of options in the Smartphone category spells great news for the consumer!
