Samsung's SCH-M470 puts Windows Mobile in the upload fast lane

Chris Ziegler

Sliders with numeric keypads aren't exactly the most common form factor for Windows Mobile handsets to begin with, but throw in some HSUPA and you've got a very rare combo indeed. Samsung's SCH-M470 fits that most unusual bill, throwing in a 2 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and WiFi -- not to say you'll necessarily need it while you're cruising along at the sickeningly fast speeds the HSPA specification originally intended. Unfortunately, this one won't find its way out of Korea, but the presence of HSUPA here is a good sign for smartphones of all creeds in the near term; 'course, if you happen to find yourself in Seoul, you'll be able to grab one for somewhere between 600,000 and 700,000 won (about $616 to $718).
