Samsung S5600 Blade mobile phone developed for Welsh speakers

A specially manufactured edition of the Samsung Blade S5600 mobile phone for Welsh speakers is on the way from Orange.

Exclusive to the network, the handset will be installed with an application that recognises 44,000 Welsh words and offers predictive text messaging in both South and North Wales dialects.

The phone is the first ever to be made with a Welsh market in mind.

Mark Mitchinson, Vice President of Samsung Mobile’s UK and Ireland divisions, said “This is another first for Samsung Mobile following the launch of the Irish language phone in 2008.

“Yet again it proves that Samsung is at the forefront of market driven change."

Other features of the Samsung S5600 include a 2.8-inch touchscreen, a three megapixel camera, FM radio and HSDPA support for fast downloads.

Launching in September, initial stocks of the mobile will go on sale in Wales before arriving in stores across the UK.
