Though we think we prefer it in white, Samsung's follow-on to the i600 and its variants -- the compact SGH-i620 slider -- is now official. Taking the wraps off at Berlin's IFA show this week, Samsung is calling attention to the unit's small size (just 95 x 59 x 16mm closed), jog dial navigation, HSDPA, and inclusion of Windows Mobile 6 out of the box. No word on a stateside release, but like its immediate predecessor, Samsung would have to craft a new version with the right bands anyhow since this one's rocking out with triband GSM and UMTS 2100. Expect a release in Germany, presumably on Vodafone, in September.
