Spec wise the Samsung Xcover 217 sports a 2 inc display, 3G connectivity, FM radio, music player, GPS with digital compass, pre-installed Google Maps, video calling, pedometer, 30MB storage and microSD expansion. The Samsung Xcover 271 apparently has a battery that can deliver up to 7 hours of 3G talk time or video talk mode, or up to 19 hours of 2G talk time.
As for availability and pricing on the Samsung Xcover 271, apparently the device will hit Sweden in October initially just as the Samsung E2370 did and the device will be offered for roughly 1700 kronor which is roughly $241.
