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.
