Samsung launches the slim i200

Originally announced back in February during the Mobile World Conference 2008, Samsung has now officially announced the release date for the rather slim and candybar-shaped i200 smartphone. Measuring 11.8mm thick, the phone is slated for a European launch in June, while other markets will get their hands on the phone in July. The compact, yet stylish, i200 will sport Windows Mobile 6.1, a glossy 2.3-inch QVGA screen, 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, music player, microSD slot and will support Microsoft Office applications (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook). The phone will also support HSDPA (3.6 Mbps), though sadly, there is no Wi-Fi support. Samsung is touting the phone’s “light sensor” which automatically detects the amount of light available and varies the LCD and keypad’s brightness accordingly, saving battery life. Unfortunately, no pricing information was released.
