Samsung P900 TV phone approved by FCC

When introduced last February Samsung SGH P900 TV cellphone has generated a lot of excited reviews. Samsung P900 is a feature packed hanset that comes with 2 megapixel camera, 2.2″ 240×320 262K Color display, video recording and messaging capabilities and Mp3 player.

However the most exciting feature of this mobile phone is a built in Digital Media Broadcast receiver that lets you watch live TV programs. 2.2″ QVGA screen is able to display pictures at 30 frames per second making TV images clear and flicker-free. The screen also rotates to horizontal position for more optimal viewing.

Samsung P900 comes with Electronic Program Guide for easy navigation through different TV channels. With 128MB of internal memory and optional microSD memory card you can record favorite shows for later viewing, transforming this cellphone into mini DVR in your pocket.

Samsung P900 is targeted for Q2 European release before this year’s FIFA World Cup and users in the U.S. naturally wondered when it will become available there. Well, now we’ve got some good news for you.

Yesterday, together with SCH E900, Samsung P900 has been approved by the FCC (*.pdf).  It will probably not be sold in the U.S. this summer, but I doubt that Samsung will want to miss Christmas season with such a cool gadget.

So you can start checking for Samsung P900 with your carrier this fall.
