In the past, BlueBird was always good for some shiny Pocket PC devices, Bluebird sold under the Pidion brand, but in Korea only. Now the Korean manufacture announced another design and feature packed Pocket PC highlight: the Pidion BM-300 which reminds a little bit on LG's Chocolate phone but unlike the Chocolate, the BM-300 is a Pocket PC (but not a Phone Edition at all) running Windows Mobile 5.0. It's sporting a 2.8" QVGA screen and is powered by an Intel Bulverde CPU with 520 MHz. Memory-wise it has 64 MB RAM, 128 MB ROM and accepts SD memory cards. Connectivity-wise it has WiFi b/g, Bluetooth and USB on board. However, the most interesting feature is it's inbuilt support for T-DMB digital terrestrial TV:

The Pidion BM-300 is scheduled to be launched in Korea in October. A US or European launch wasn't announced yet and I don't expect a launch anywhere else in the world at all, since all the previous devices were also released in Korea only; even if T-DMB would also works in other countries as well, like Germany where two commercial T-DMB services were launched one month ago.
