Samsung Mondi is a WiMax handheld
Samsung announced a new device for Clearwire's WiMax Clear service, the Mondi, which is said to be the most-advanced WiMax mobile handheld for the U.S. It isn't a netbook or a UMPC, but a large Windows Mobile 6.1 powered device with 4.3" touch screen and sliding 4-row QWERTY keyboard and optical mouse. It will come preloaded with Route 66 for GPS navigation, Opera Mobile 9.5 browser and other programs such as Fring (multi-IM client) and Gypsii. As it is based on Windows Mobile, it is a smart device and the user can download lots of additional programs to it. Samsung also packed it with the Widgets homescreen, known from most of their touch phones.

If you are wondering how you'll hold this rather huge device to your ear to make a call, don't worry - it doesn't have a phone functionality. Currently, there is no information about availability or pricing.

its not desinged as a phone, but as a cross between a pda and a netbook... its bigger than a pda, and not as powerful as a netbook... i wouldnt be surprised if it came with a car mount...

You're an idiot. It's not a phone. "If you are wondering how you'll hold this rather huge device to your ear to make a call, don't worry - it doesn't have a phone functionality. Currently, there is no information about availability or pricing. "

I bet if this was LTE and vzw branded it would be glorious and w/o flaw

it would be windows mobile 5.0, have 1/4 of the ram, and a slower processor if it was on vzw.... but great voice coverage if it made calls.... =-)
