Hands-on with the Samsung F480 Tocco

SlashGear has a great hands-on with the super-cool F480 Tocco from Samsung. Will we ever get it? No, but at least we can stare at it while idly touching ourselves.

Once through the unusual outer packaging (which I don’t believe will be standard!), the Tocco’s box is discrete and elegant. It’s a theme that’s carried over to the handset itself; it feels sturdy and well-built, and Samsung have obviously put some thought into how the F480 sits in the hand. I’m particularly impressed by the two back-covers, one plain brushed metal and the other with an attached flip screen protector, complete with cut-outs for the earpiece and microphone. It’s a neat solution to both guarding from scratches and face-smears when in use, but I do wonder whether it could be a little thinner. At 98.4 x 55 x 11.6mm and 106g, the Tocco is a seriously compact cellphone. With the standard back-plate it’ll even fit inside my wallet/business card holder.
