In a cool gesture any professional magician would surely be proud of, Sandeep Saingal waved his hand clockwise over a mobile phone without touching it, and it played music to him. Not just any music, his music. Reversing the wave to anti-clockwise, the magical mobile stopped playing the tune. A few more gestures it changed song, went back to the previous song....all of it was music of Saingal's choice. Samsung's senior sales and marketing manager for the Middle East and Africa demonstrated the E760 motion recognition mobile phone. Its design is so cool you could mop your brow with it in a Gulf summer and the firm’s new MP3 player has a quality set of speakers as well. "That's neat," said Hemalata Patel, a saleswoman visiting the show, who needs the best for her continent-hopping job. "I can even operate my phone while both hands are full when i’m eating my breakfast," she laughed. It does, of course, do all the mundane things we take for granted of mobile phones, like taking photos though Saingal had more up his sleeve. Out of the Samsung hat, he pulled out the Z500, the world's smallest 3G phone, weighing in at 95 grams and measuring 89 x 44 x 24.5mm, it might be a bantam weight but it packs punch with its one megapixel VGA capable digital camera. He then followed this up with the Symbian D720 mobile phone. Its uniqueness comes in its ability to take add on applications and presto facto, it becomes a personalised phone that lets you upload images and messages with ease. Another example is when you view files, you can even multi-task, having five files open at the same time, which the company claims is a feature unique to its products. Like a true TV wizzard keeping his audience spellbound, Saingal held Samsung's flagship to the last - the soon-to-be-launched D600. Its TV outplug can immediately play back the video footage you just shot with it, or display your power point, word or Excel documents. "Who really needs laptops?" Saingal asked.
