Silently announced during this month's Mobile World Congress, I've just got my hands on a brand new Samsung SGH-i200 (most likely) Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard smartphone.
After the Samsung SGH-i300, this is Samsung's first standard candy bar 12-keys phone pad smartphone and therefore it might find its own audience since not everybody want to have BlackBerry kind of device these days.
Feature-wise, the SGH-i200 is quite comparable to the SGH-i620/SGH-i640 by featuring triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE, singleband UMTS/HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. WiFi isn't built-in and also GPS is left.
The non-touchscreen measures 2.3" and supports the Windows Mobile typical QVGA resolution in portrait mode. The CMOS main camera supports photos up to 2 megapixel while the front facing camera features VGA only. Not yet confirmed is the internal memory which is expected to be 64 MB RAM and 128 MB ROM. Nevertheless, the memory can be extended with microSD cards.While the SGH-i200 is pretty thin (the device measures 116.7 x 50.8 x 11.8 mm only), it's not a Samsung Ultra II device, even if it would fit into this category, but like the Samsung SGH-i780, it's said to be a business device:Please note that the device above is a prototype and the quality of this prototype doesn't reflects how high-quality the commercial version will be.
According to Samsung, the SGH-i200 will be released across Europe in Q1-2008. An estimated retail price isn't known yet.
