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.
