4 New WiMAX devices from Samsung – SPH P-9200 UMPC, SPH-8200 Slider, SPH-1300 and SWT-H200k USB Modems
In addition to a full line-up of various 2.5G and 3G HSDPA mobile phones, Samsung is already starting to think about the next generation of devices, supporting IEEE 802.16e WiMAX technology. As well they should, since Korea already has a functional WiMAX network deployed.
Samsung today has officially announced four new devices. The most advanced among them is Samsung SPH-P9200 UMPC with foldable QWERTY keyboard, Windows XP OS, HSDPA, Mobile WiMAX and Wi-Fi connectivity, 1 GHz Via C7-M CPU and 512MB of RAM.
Then there’s traditional 16.6 mm thick Samsung SPH-M8200 slider PDA phone with CDMA EV-DO and Mobile WiMAX connectivity, full touchscreen, Bluetooth and tons of cool apps.
In addition to stand-alone mobile devices, Samsung also released a couple of USB type modems that will connect your laptop to a WiMAX network. These include Samsung SPH-H1300 and Samsung SWT-H200K WiMAX modems.
Looks like really cool devices and I’d really would like to try them here, in Europe, when WiMAX networks will start rolling out.
