Today, Samsung has officially announced the Samsung SGH-i600 (code named BlackJack II), the UMTS follower of the SGH-i320, which was also previewed during this week's IFA exhibition in Berlin. Like at the i320, the highlight of the i600 is its BlackBerry-styled thumb-keyboard which mostly addresses business customers. Nevertheless, it might also appeal consumers since the device is way feature-richer than BlackBerrys are.
Sporting Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone, the i600 supports triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, single band UMTS and HSDPA, W-LAN b and g and Bluetooth 2.0 with support for A2DP, and printing protocols. It includes 128 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM which can be extended using microSD memory cards. It measures 113x59 x11.8 mm and has a 2.3" QVGA landscape TFT screen, supporting 65k colors. On the backside, the device features a 1.3 megapixel camera and on the front it has a second QCIF+ camera for UMTS video telephony:

In addition to the standard Windows Mobile 5.0 applications, Samsung added Picsel Viewer supporting Microsoft Office and Acrobat files (the Picsel Viewer was already used by Motorola in its MPx220 Windows Mobile Smartphone) but also multimedia-wise, the i600 is supporting more than just the standard, since it playbacks MP3, WMA and AAC/AAC+ audio files as well as WMV, MPEG4 and H236 video files.

A price wasn't given yet but the release can be expected during 4th quarter 2006.

Cheers ~ Arne
