Samsung's SGH-i900 is shiny, awesome
When we first heard about the i900 back in January we were a bit skeptical, but it looks like Samsung really is pulling this one out of its bag of tricks. It was on display with some other unannounced Sammys at a mobile conference in Holland last month, and yesterday the Chinese website PCOnline got some hands-on with the upcoming Windows Mobile 6.1 device. Wi-Fi, 3.5" touchscreen display, 16GB of onboard memory with microSD expansion, 5 megapixel autofocus camera...suffice it to say that the specs are drool-worthy:

  • 3.5G HSDPA connectivity
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro OS
  • 3.5″ 240×400px, 262K color TFT touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel autofocus camera
  • front camera for video calls
  • Built-in GSM
  • FM Radio
  • TV-Out
  • 16GB of built-in memory
  • microSDHC memory card slot (up to 8GB)
  • Bluetooth 2.2, A2DP
  • Wi-Fi b/g
  • 1500mAh battery
  • Dimensions: 112×56×13mm

From one of the pictures it appears that it may be dressed in the standard Windows Mobile garb instead of a fancy reskin a-la TouchFLO 3D, but other than that we can't find a single thing wrong with this thing. Ok, that shiny exterior will fingerprint like crazy...but other than that we can't find a single thing wrong here. It looks like there will be an Anycall i908 counterpart, but no word on what that means. Samsung still hasn't officially announced this, so things are subject to change, but as of now we're pretty excited about the idea of a US version.
