On Communic Asia 2002 in Singapore, Samsung presented a Smartphone with the codename Bluechip, based on the Palm OS 4.1.

Even if it is a prototype today the final version should have for sure the following specifications:

  • Color LCD screen
  • 8,7 x 5,4 x 2,1 centimeters size
  • 130 grams weight
  • Graffiti input field
  • GPS receiver

A price or availability wasn't give today.

A Smartphone which is used with a stylus and in this case with Graffiti? What the hell is this!? :-> LOL... Doesn't makes sense from my point of view, in that case I prefer a Wireless PDA like the O2 xda or even the Handspring Treo. If I'm looking for a Smartphone, it have to work without a stylus like Microsoft Smartphone 2002 platform.

Hm, hope this is a concept only and they will change the specifications for the final release. However, GPS is a nice addition I want to see on Smartphone 2002s too!

Cheers ~ Arne

Kyocera have unvieled a Palm OS phone which looks  nearly to be exactly as the Samsung one. Not sure about Samsung features but the Kyocera 7135 has an SD slot and mp3 playback.(http://www.infosync.no/show.php?id=1980)

You say "A Smartphone which is used with a stylus and in this case with Graffiti? What the hell is this!? :-> " now graffiti is not the only way u can input, but have the on screen keyboard ..

plus the good old ABC keypad of the phone ..under the graffiti area u can see a cursor and 2 buttons.. plus under the screen u can see the well known palm 4 buttons.. all of which implies that it can be fully operated without out a stylus..

And I dont see whats wrong with a touch screen and a stylus.. I find it to be a plus.. since users would still want to use the stylus for navigating and inputing text like they used to with their pdas

this is a phone with pda features .. and not a pda with phone capabilities such as the o2 ..

I am sure this phone already has its appeal.. especially between palm users .. (and the Kyocera looks even more appealing)

just my thoughts wink
