Sure, you like the Motorola Q
but hate the fact that it's missing WiFi. And the lack of 3G on the HTC Excalibur
is also a deal breaker. Well, look no further for your QWERTY fix brother, 'cause our favorite maker of boxy black
devices is showing off their SGH-i600 Smartphone at IFA in Berlin. This tri-band GSM 900/1800/1900 baby brings it all: HSDPA, EDGE, 802.11b/g WiFi, Bluetooth, a 1.3 megapixel cam with another up front for video calls, a 2.3-inch, 65k color, 320 x 240 TFT display, Microsoft's Push Mail, and 128MB ROM / 64MB RAM with MicroSD expansion all powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone on a TI OMAP 1710 processor. The phone looks small enough for single-handed operation, can pull double-duty as an HSDPA modem and can even be switched into USB mass storage mode for easy drag-n-drop data transfer off your PC. And yeah, it's FCC approved
so the estimated Q4 2006 release date is certainly do-able. Now sop-up the drool and click-on for more pics.
