Samsung Anycall 5200 Gaming Phone – With Windows mobile, Sony PSP and Nintendo Games!

The battle for the ultimate mobile gaming platform is heating up. And it’s moving into mobile phone arena.

First generation Nokia N-Gage may have flopped, but Nokia is working on a serious upgrade for it, and has some cool gaming phones, like Nokia N81 in the works.

Then there are these rumors and hints about Microsoft Zune getting into mobile gaming.

And now it looks that Samsung is getting there too, with it’s own mobile gaming phone. Today PhoneDaily has a story about Samsung Anycall 5200 Gaming phone:

samsung-anycall-5200-gaming-phone.jpg

Samsung 5200 is built on the same platform as Samsung F520 Ultra Smart phone with interesting dual slide design. The only difference here – Samsung has decided that a gaming phone doesn’t really need full QWERTY keyboard and replaced it with cute gaming controls.

Otherwise Samsung Anycall 5200 is the same F520 Ultra Smart, running Windows Mobile OS with 2.8″ touchscreen, 3 megapixel camera, HSDPA connectivity.

The most interesting thing that can be seen from the pictures, is the Sony PSP logo on the backside of the device and the fact that it’s running what looks like a Nintendo game.

I do not read Japanese and Google translation did not help much either, but Samsung Windows Mobile phone with PSP gaming platform, running a Nintendo game…

Now that’s an example cooperation and of interoperability!

Update: Ooops… I really got tricked (by myself) here. That’s what you get relying on machine translation. Although very similar to Samsung SBH-B5200, the phone above is not from Samsung. It’s a rip-off playing on Samsung’s Asian brand “Anycall” by (most likely) some Chinese electronics manufacturer. Thank’s Engadget for correcting me.

    Hi there, i dont have a *.nes files in my driver.. And i try to load also a nes games to my memory card but it doesn’t work. What can i do to fix this one…
    Pls. help me there…. Thanks

  • Tats

    There is lots of questions on this site but not many answers. My daughter managed to ‘format’ her phone and lost the games directory.

    Restoring factory settings does not restore anything. Does anyone have any ideas how we can get games back on the phone?

  • varun

    My phone doesn’t get detected when i connect it to the PC-just the headset icon shows up on the phone screen. Any suggestions?

  • amin

    hi
    how can i use my blutooth??

    thnks

  • Ravinder Verma

    Hi,
    Many of you are facing the problem when you delete some folder in the Anycall phone. So I am uploading the directory structure on the following link:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/100171518/ANYCALL.rar.html

    Now, download this rar file. Copy the images and NES files to your computer as a backup from your phone. Then from this rar file, overwrite/copy all the folders in the memory card of your phone. I have placed one file of each type in important folders. So you can refer to them for the contents of each folder and copy your files also into the phone from you computer backup.

    For Video files, good thing is that this phone also supports 3gp files. So you can always play them too. But mp4 files are real good in playing. Convert to MP4 using “Allok 3GP PSP MP4 iPod Video Converter” software on 320×240 resolution. This is very nice software and can convert any file to mp4. You need to buy this or find any alternative free software like this. Also note that there could be difference in the format even the file is mp4. This phone plays MP4 files with same format as in original sony PSP and that’s why I recommended the above software.

    For bluetooth, I did not find any solution upto now. So sorry. My bluetooth is also down since I bought this phone.

    For English, come to the desktop of your phone. Now press the middle round button of the joypad of the dialing slide. You will see the main menu icons. Select the very first icon and press A. Now select the 4th option in the list and press A. Now select the 1st option and press A. I think now you are able to see English as an option. Select it and press A. Done !

  • Varun Devayya

    Hi Ravinder…Do you think this would solve the problem of my phone not getting detected on my PC? Everything else is working on my phone including the NES games.Also, does the anycall support java apps? Would you have the english manual by any chance?

  • Varun Devayya

    Amin…Bluetooth works only with bluetooth headsets and not between handsets

  • varun

    hey guys…my comp doesn’t even detect the phone when i connect it?wat cld be d problem?the usb cable goes into the headset groove right?just doesn’t detect.Even if i select USB disk on the phone,it says ‘usb cable not connected’.please help!!

  • Ravinder Verma

    Well, Varun Devayya, this phone doesn’t support any java apps. See the phone will not be automatically detected. You must go to Multimedia > USB Manager and then USB Disk. If still not detected, then try the second option here “PC Camera”. If nothing happens after this then there could be some problem in you phone.

  • stacey

  • stacey

    just to let everyone know i know how to get your phone to come up on your computer
    once you have pluged your phone into the computer go onto the multimedia button on your phone and go down to USB manager and click on USB disk your phone should then be conneceted to the computer

  • dan thai san

    for everyone who wants to buy that phone .. here some infos …

    take care for your headset because you can talk only with someone if the headset is plugged in ! ..the voice recorder of that phone is bad so buy you a bluetooth headset it will work … this phone doesn.t works with other phone also no bluetooth data transfer between 2 phones ! bluetooth will only work with a headset because that fucking phone haves only bluetooth 1.x or so also a bluetooth what´s only for headsets !

    the bluetooth of my mobile set doesn’t work properly . it doesn’t get connected to any other set .what is the remedy of this problem?

  • :)

    Anycall is made by Samsung.

  • Lee

    I have the anycall 5200 from china, it is a great phone, it plays nintendo, super nintendo, and N64 games along with PS1 and the old Panisonic 3DO, the Logo PSP is not anything to do with Sony, it has a 1GB Micro SD, it runs windows XP mobil, and has a media player, it plays AVI, DIVX, MP4, and XVID… I have GPS on mine aswell, it runs it fine, however if you get a phone call it uses the processor and crashes the phone, this is why when GPS is activated it asks ''Do u want to start flight mode'' it is touch, key controled, voice controled, finger print passworded, and has real loud speakers, my friends dont stand a chance playing there music, even on the speakers for the walkman phones my phone is still louder, it cost me, £62.00 in china that would be about £248… i give the anycall 5200 10/10… the time the UK tax man got his hands on this phone it would cost lot more than £62, so im realy pleased with my phone PDA,

  • Violet Smith

    Anycall mobile phones are a replica of Samsung mobile phones. I have the I900 and it came with no software in it
    The folders were empty I took it to Telstra technicians they couldnt download the configurations to have access for the internet. Optus also told me they could not install the software configuration for internet access. So basically im stuck with a lemon of a phone with no internet. I bought It online from China. Can anyone help me?
