Excerpt: Available At: I was recently able to try out Samsung's new budget phone that I'm positively sure they're aiming to be in competition with the LG KP500 Cookie . The Samsung Tocco Lite or more commonly known as the Samsung S5230 in other countries, is Samsung's cheapest budget phone.
Summary: The Tocco Lite is dubbed as the Samsung’s equivalent to LG’s Cookie (the best selling phone in the first half of 2009). It’s fun, young, affordable and super stylish. Samsung’s Tocco Lite has a sexy interface,allows simple access to sites like Facebook and Youtube, and comes armed with all the necessaries – camera, video recording and MP3 music player.
