During a Dutch telecom event called "Televisie 2008", Samsung unveiled a new Windows Mobile smartphone we've hard about before - the Samsung SGH-i900! And unlike previous rumors mentioned, it's not running anything different to Windows Mobile Professional and Samsung even confirmed that it will run Windows Mobile 6.1.
While most specs are unknown or at least unconfirmed yet, it's known that the i900 will feature at least triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as singleband UMTS/HSDPA, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and WiFi b/g. While not yet confirmed, sources said the i900 also sports GPS and an FM radio.

The 3.5" screen is expected to have a Windows Mobile unusual resolution of 240x400 pixel and the autofocus camera is expected to support 5 megapixel. Last but not least, Samsung's newest smartphone should include at least 8 GB of memory (since the SGH-i300 Samsung is well known to equip its smartphones with enough memory).

A price or release date isn't known yet but if Samsung is already ready to show it on events, a release in summer is most likely. But neither the specs above nor the estimated release date are confirmed yet.

Cheers ~ Arne

So close but not quite there.

Not liking the 240x400 (W)QVGA resolution.

Thinking that with the trend moving into VGA Screens a WVGA 800x480 would make it more competitive with what is coming just round the corner from Glofiish, HTC and SE.

Love it, always hoped it's not a rumor only!!! Don't like the SonyEricsson but this guy could be my Touch Dual replacement! Well, let's see what HTC is unveiling next month. But it looks like an exciting summer for Windows Mobile fans! smile
