U600 gets touched up

We all know that the U600 is a cracking phone. Clocking in at a mere 10.9mm, it’s the thinnest slider around and has got plenty of neat features on board.

Samsung though, has seen fit to tinker with its high end war horse, offering haptic touch as part of an update announced last night in London.

The tech means the touch sensitive keys now respond with a neat vibrate every time you fondle them. This is something LG has been fond of in the past, shoving it onto the Viewty. Motorola has also stuck in on the E8, which we fooled around with at CES.

The new U600 is out now on O2 contract, or £99.99 SIM free if you’re feeling flush. Not bad considering you get a 3.2 meg-peeper, 60MB of on board memory and Bluetooth 2.0.

As relaunches go, this one is pretty vanilla, so we’re hoping that this is just an entrée before Samsung serves up more meaty mobile morsels next week at MWC in Barcelona.
