Samsung reveals WiBro SPH-P9000 at Mobile WiMAX Summit

Wednesday, November 08, 2006

If you can't stand typing on those teeny-weeny QWERTY keyboards (thumbpads?) on your mobile phone, Samsung hears you. They just showed off this monster of a "mobile convergence device" (don't you dare call it a phone) at the Mobile WiMAX Summit 2006 in South Korea. Featuring a full fold-out keyboard and 30 GB hard drive, it runs Windows XP and weighs just 1.28 pounds.

The device uses CDMA EV-DO and Mobile WiMAX (or WiBro) for connectivity (sorry no WiFi, but with Internet speeds of 2-3 Mbps while travelling at up to 75 MPH/120 KPH, it's more than enough for mobile VoIP!) and looks like it will only be available in Korea. Still, it's a neat concept. Looks almost like my ultimate handheld gadget, but would probably be too big to fit in my pocket (unless I wear some really baggy jeans, maybe).

Engadget has more photos from the summit, and here are the specs from the press release.
