Samsung B570Samung has upped the ante with the launch of its SCH-B570 which was announced earlier this year. The phone comes with a built-in 8GB hard drive, making it one of the highest capacity music phone on the market. In comparison, Nokia's hard drive based music phone (N91) has 4GB of storage.

Even while besting some of Apple's iPod devices in storage capacity, the B570 still manages to pack in a host of other top-tier features:

  • EV-DO high-speed data
  • 2-megapixel camera
  • QVGA display with 262K colors
  • Satellite DMB TV with picture-in-picture
  • Motion sensor
  • 5.1 stereo 3D sound

The Samsung B570 will be released in Korea by end of this month for a MSRP of $800. The B570 won't make it out of Korea, but the Samsung i310 will ship in Europe and it also sports an 8GB hard drive.
