Samsung i740 – new Windows Mobile smartphone in the works

While the latest Samsung WM6 smartphones like Samsung Omnia i900 or Samsung i780 are all the rage, they carry a hefty price tag too, so not everyone can afford them.

And while a lot of people might want to use the many possibilities latest smartphones and add-on software provides, not everyone would want to rack-up hefty mobile data download charges on their current plans.

Samsung SGH-i740 seems to be designed just for such a person:

Samsung i740 is  a 2.5G  Windows Mobile professional full touchscreen smartphone with fast chip, GPS navigation, fast CPU, pretty good 3 megapixel camera and a novel navigation wheel.

Other Samsung i740 specs include:

  • Quadband GSM (850/900/1800/1900) GPRS/EDGE connectivity
  • Windows Mobile professional 6.1
  • Monahan LV 624 MHz CPU
  • 2.8 QVGA 320x240px touchscreen with VibeTonz haptics feedback
  • 3 megapixel camera with business card reader
  • Built-in GPS
  • FM Radio
  • microSD memory card slot (up to 4GB)
  • Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, USB 2.0
  • Dimensions: 107x59x13.8mm

The  missing things in Samsung i740 are QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi connectivity and 3G/HSPA  support.

But, as I said earlier, if you are not too big on mobile browsing, Samsung SGH-i740 looks like a pretty good business/multimedia smartphone.
