The Samsung Seek features a phone book that has room for 600 entries with each entry giving space for five numbers, a street address, a memo, an instant messenger handle, a birthday, three email addresses, a web URL and a photo for caller ID. Each of the contacts can be further customized with any one of 20 polyphonic ring tones or four vibration modes. The handset comes with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard for dialing numbers or texting messages easily and efficiently.
The Seek features an integrated 1.3 megapixel camera which is capable of taking images in 4 resolutions along with settings such as white balance control, brightness, self timer, night mode, shooting modes, six color effects, center/spot metering and three shutter sounds with a silent feature.
