Samsung, not to be outdone by Nokia’s impressive line-up of music phones releases last week, has launched the X830 Music Phone.

With 1GB of memory, enough to store up to 1000 songs, the X830 offers MP3 player-like features, including a music library that keeps tracks organised.

The swivel design gives a unique twist to the usual mobile phone form features, and means that the device measures just 19.9mm wide by 84mm long, and comes in black, white, or pink gloss finish. Features include a 1.3MP camera, and easy click wheel navigation.

The Samsung X830 will be available from O2, Orange, Carphone Warehouse, and Phones 4U on both contract and pre-pay.
