Samsung shows bright i718 Pocket PC

Chris Ziegler

Oh, you thought that when we said "bright," we meant "smart?" We suppose it could be that, too -- but more than anything, the Samsung i718's orange shell is just "bright." The fresh Pocket PC introduced at ITU Telecom World this week does the whole smartphone gig with a little more style than your average Windows Mobile device, though the specs aren't exactly earth shattering; would-be buyers can look forward to a 2.8-inch QVGA display, 2 megapixel shooter, 128MB of ROM, 64MB of RAM, microSD expansion, and Bluetooth 2.0. Though the phone's China-bound with no plans for a global release, the quad-band GSM / EDGE radio (somewhat unusual for a Chinese market device) means that North American readers pining for an orange PDA phone may have met their match.
