Samsung's DivX video phone

You saw the first of Samsung's 'Ultra Music' phones here a couple of days ago – now meet its video-scoffing HSPDA brother.

The F500 takes its F300 sibling's blueprint – 9.4mm thick body, stereo Bluetooth, 2MP camera – and adds some pretty darn impressive video support and a spinning lower half.

It's the first phone we know of that plays DivX video, and backs that up with support for MP4, MP3, AAC and PlaysForSure files. Like Nokia's 5350, the lower half twists round completely to offer two 'faces', but the practical bonuses of using as a stand to watch video (as above) and as a grip for the camera make it a very nifty piece of design.

You may also have noticed that it has an aerial – that's for DVB-H countries (i.e not us), but Samsung told us that a modified version will ship to the UK, possibly as early as April. Well, it'll tide you over until you get an iPhone.
