Samsung's just gone ahead and pulled the trigger on announcing its S5620 Monte ahead of Mobile World Congress next week, offering a decent set of social features and Google integration at what should be a pretty reasonable price. The "reasonable price" part of this equation comes thanks to a 3-inch WQVGA display and 3.2 megapixel camera, though exact pricing hasn't been announced; meanwhile, you've got a whole host of features that you'd typically associate with higher-end devices like WiFi, Exchange ActiveSync support, and integration with Google's Latitude service to keep track of your friends' whereabouts from afar. Riding atop the latest "2.0 Plus" version of Sammy's ubiquitous TouchWiz UI, the phone features 3.6Mbps HSDPA on the 900 and 2100MHz bands (read: no US support here) and has AGPS, integrated FM radio with RDS, and microSD support up to 16GB. We should know more on pricing and availability around MWC, we imagine, but for now, specs and this lovely picture are all we're going to get.
