Samsung's WiMax-only phone

South Korea is getting a unique cellphone from Samsung that relies on WiMax/WiBro broadband, AVING reports. The SPH-M8100 functions as either a VoIP, video, Push-to-Talk or standard voice phone, and is capable of 20Mbps transfer speeds while the receiver moves as fast as 37mph. It can also be connected to a PC and used as a modem. It accepts RSS subscriptions, and in Korea, at least, it can receive T-DMB TV signals. A TV-out jack feeds images to an external display. Reflecting the limited distribution of WiMax, there are no (current) plans to export the M8100 outside of Korea. Click through for full-sized photos.
