The Samsung SGH-D600 is:
The slider can be configured for accepting and closing calls as well as locking and unlocking the keys.
One of the available accessories for the D600 is a stereo headset with earplugs on a neck string, a microphone on one of the earplug cables and a detachable phone holder which attaches to its bottom. It can be also used for the handsfree function of the mobile phone.
The Samsung SGH-D600 is the successor to the Samsung SGH-D500, and differs from it with a slightly revised design, a higher resolution camera which is located outside the sliding area instead of inside, TV output, and support for microSD external flash memory cards. It also includes a Picsel Viewer for Microsoft Office documents. It is available in black/grey and Chrome color variants, and has a rubberized finish to some areas of its body.
Still Camera features:
In video camera mode (key "1" toggles between still and video modes), nearly the same features are available. Zooming is possible even during video capture. T9 predictive text is turned on and off by pressing and holding the star/asterisk ("*") key.
All these features, combined with the TV-out port and the microSD card reader on the D600, make it a perfect multimedia solution that fits in a pocket.
Launch date: Q1, 2005
The Register praised its looks and small size. Trusted Reviews awarded it 9/10, calling it "a great looking phone with a screen that puts other handsets to shame". CNet gave a positive review scoring 3.5/5 suggesting it was good both for professionals and those looking for fun features.
A supposed 'killer app' feature of the D600 that has been the routine subject of critical review is the phone's poor visual TV out quality.
Other criticisms of the model include:
The D600 has several hacks that can be used to overcome some of the shortcoming of the firmware shipped with the phone. Most of them will invalidate the warranty and may violate any network agreements.
