Samsung i200 launched with Windows Mobile 6.1

No matter how 2007 slim-type phones may seem, thin is still definitely better than big and bulky. And if a handset has kick-butt features inside its “razor thin” casing, then it’s all for the better. Samsung is keeping this mind with their latest launch, dubbed the Samsung i200. It’s a power-packed smartphone running on Windows Mobile 6.1, and yet it’s only 11.8 mm thin.

For starters, it offers a 2.3” QVGA TFT screen with glossy coating, a built-in 2 megapixel camera, ambient light sensor, music player, and on-the-go office apps. Samsung calls this “the young, stylish and energetic mobile which will be the perfect mate for urban business professionals,” and I don’t find it hard to agree.

The Samsung i200 also comes pre-loaded with MS Office programs such as Excel, Word, Powerpoint, and Outlook, with Outlook optimized for full-HTML e-mail, featuring easy editing (cut, copy and paste), and unified email and SMS/MMS management.

E-mail is downloaded in the background and users are notified of new e-mails via a very convenient pop-up. Don’t you wish all mobile phones had that feature?

The HSDPA network compatible Samsung i200 is set to a European release next month, with a release in other markets following shortly.

    I agree to your statement. Moreover, its weight is very less, good talktime, bright display, performance better than any other windows mobile based phone. But, Samsung is famous fro it slide phone which is missing here and shape may not be excellent. But, overall very good deal at given cost and performance.
