Samsung BeatDJ and BeatDisc Feature Audio by Bang & Olufsen

Illustration for article titled Samsung BeatDJ and BeatDisc Feature Audio by Bang  Olufsen

The Samsung BeatDJ and BeatDisc are just cellphones, but they promise "deep rich bass and crystal clear treble" through stereo speakers featuring B&O's ICEpower amplifier. We're ever so skeptical.

DISCUSSION

This name trend is all well and good until they come out with BeatWife and BeatStepkid.

On point: With B&O having a hand in this, I would think they would look nicer. Seem a bit generic to me. Yeah, Bang to the Olufsen don't always have the most user friendly electronics, but I will be damned that they don't always have the most interesting looking. Too bad they are playing it safe this round.
