Samsung Readying CDMA/GSM PDA Phone
Mar 4, 2005, 6:20 PM by (staff)
The FCC recently approved the Samsung SCH-i830, the first Windows Mobile for Pocket PC device to include both CDMA and GSM mobile technologies. The device is based on the previously-announced i730, and appears to share most of its features, including a sliding QWERTY keyboard and Bluetooth. But the i830 does not appear to have Wi-Fi or a camera, two carrier-optional features of the i730. Like Samsung's A790 world phone, the i830 will be quad-band, supporting CDMA 800/1900 for domestic CDMA networks, and GSM 900/1800 for overseas GSM networks.
