Samsung is getting ready to introduce a new Windows Mobile smartphone in China, namely the Samsung i329.
Looking like a redesigned Samsung Omnia Lite B7300 (which also runs on Windows Mobile), the i329 features: a 3 inch touchscreen display with 240 x 400 pixels, TouchWiz UI, 512MB of internal memory, a Qualcomm QSC6975 chipset, and MicroSDHC card support, up to 32GB.
According to Telecoms Korea, the Samsung i329 will be soon launched by China Unicom on its new CDMA2000 1x EV-DO Rev.0 network. However, since China Unicom transferred its CDMA business to China Telecom, the smartphone will probably be launched by the latter carrier and not by Unicom.
Since it’s a CDMA smartphone, Samsung i329 may reach carriers outside of China – Verizon or Sprint, anyone?
