Not really new anymore and surprisingly on stage in the U.S., Samsung shows its latest Windows Mobile smartphones at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show. These handsets made their U.S. debut at the show and exemplify cutting-edge technology and design innovation, including the Samsung SGH-i620 Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone and the Samsung SGH-i780 Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphones.
While both smartphones are great Windows Mobile 6 devices, both features triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz and singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz only which means it supports one of two U.S. GSM bands only and no UMTS/HSDPA bands.

The Samsung SGH-i620 features a vertical slide design that reveals a full QWERTY keyboard. The i620 is a Windows Mobile 6.0 smart device that offers podcasting, RSS reader capabilities, music player and 2 megapixel camera.

The Samsung SGH-i780 (see our earlier exclusive coverage including photos and videos here) is a sleek smart device featuring a full QWERTY keyboard and full touch screen. The Windows Mobile 6.0 device features push E-Mail, GPS capabilities, an optical mouse, 2 megapixel camera and HSDPA technology.

Since both devices lacks serious support for U.S. GSM and UMTS networks, don't expect a release in the U.S. too soon.
