Does anyone make old-fashioned cell phones anymore? I’m not talking about those giant boxey things of the ‘80s or something with a rotary dial…

Samsung doesn’t—or at least they aren’t promoting it. Instead, they are high on their three new music phones.

Each one promises “100 per cent music, 100 per cent phone,” says Gizmodo. I’m not math wiz, but is that even possible?

The SGH-i450 is the cream of the crop, and has an amplifier by Bang & Olufsen to justify its $508 price tag. The slider also features 35MB of memory (say what?), a 2-megapixel camera, an SD card slot (whew!), a 2.4-inch display and a Symbian S60 OS.

The SGH-F330 ($365) is also a slider, also with the 2-megapixel camera and 24MB of memory. The SGH-F210 ($393) is a swivel unit, with built-in FM radio and 1GB of memory. Gizmodo has more specs on each.

All three phones will start popping up in European markets by the end of this month. No word on when or if any of them will make it stateside.
