Samsung M3510 to Include Accelerometer Gesture Support

Pink is the new black, FriendFeed is the new Twitter, and it looks like accelerometers are the new ‘thin form factor’. While the world became much more aware of accelerometers with the coming of the iPhone’s “mysterious” automatic screen rotation, the truth is of course that handsets have been packing accelerometers for quite a while. Some of the more popular accelerometer-sporting include a few Sony Ericsson models and of course the Nokia N95 which has seen an onslaught of accelerometer-based apps in development since last October. Samsung wants a piece of the action as well apparently as it prepares to drop the M3510 complete with shake-and-twist gesture controlls out of the box. Other specs include:

  • 2.5G GSM/GPRS/EDGE  connectivity
  • 2″ QVGA 262K color display
  • 2 megapixel camera
  • FM Radio with RDS
  • 20MB of user memory
  • microSD memory card slot
  • USB 2.0, Bluetooth, 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Dimensions: 109×46×9.9 mm

Meh, not terrible. It appears to be a music-centric handset that is likely intended to do battle with lower-end Walkman phones from Sony Ericsson. The unsubsidized price at launch will be somewhere in the mid to high $300s so carrier prices should be pretty competative. As for the possibility of seeing the M3510 stateside? Doubtful; at least not for quite some time.
