The FCC recently revealed further details about a new Windows Mobile Smartphone from Samsung. The SGH i610 is a slim clamshell with GSM / EDGE 900/1800/1900 and UMTS 2100 for 3G data outside of the US. The i610 features a hybrid QWERTY keyboard similar to the SureType keyboard on many RIM handsets, including the T719 from Samsung. It also has a 2 Megapixel auto-focus camera, both of which are Windows Mobile firsts. The i610 features a second camera for video calling, Micro SD card slot, stereo Bluetooth (A2DP), an FM Radio, and a 2 line monochrome external display. In addition to the standard Smartphone suite, the i610 also includes an RSS reader with a podcast player and Picsel viewer for opening attachments on the phone. Samsung is also launching the i600, a big brother to this phone with a full QWERTY keyboard and Wi-Fi as well.

Whats the point?

whats the whole point of this article when the phone isnt for use in the U.S ,not to mention not even capable of working on Cingular's 3g network, the only reason y it would work here cuz it has the 1.9ghz band which would not be a wise reason to even buy this phone, samsung needs to start releasing 3g phones for cingular besides the zx20

You think so? Hmm, it's nothing breath-taking, but certainly not deserving a pronouncement of 'ugly'. Imo, anyways. Smile
