Samsung today announced to unveil its latest Windows Mobile Smartphone during CeBIT this week. As the name of the new device mentions, the SGH-i310 is the successor of the Samsung SGH-i300 Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition Smartphone but this time it looks like Samsung did everything right. Beside the extended memory (8 GB HDD instead of 3 GB HDD only), the i310 is announced to use Windows Mobile 5.0 (instead of Windows Mobile 2003 SE).
Other features are 2 megapixel camera with flash, TV-output, audio support for MP3, WMA, AAC, stereo speakers, support for A2DP and AVRC Bluetooth profiles, USB 2.0 and microSD memory card storage. The press release isn't saying anything about the supported wireless standards but it can be expected, that the i310 will support at least GSM and GPRS, UMTS isn't expected yet.
UPDATE: Here we go with some updated information regarding the support wireless technologies. The SGH-i3100 will be, as the i300, a triband GSM, GPRS and EDGE (new) phone only, supporting GSM 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz and therefore it's unlikely to see it officially released in North America.
The screen will be, as expected a QVGA color screen supporting 65.536 colors. The dimension of the i310 is 111,9 x 48,5 x 19,8mm with a weight of 120g.
The SGH-i310 is expected to be available across Europe during the second half of 2006. A price wasn't given yet.
