Samsung M8100 Smartphone

Samsung's AnyCall label today launched a new phone in its premier Mobile Intelligent Terminal range: the M8100 straddles the line between smartphones and PDAs by resembling a slider phone but having the dimensions and 2.8-inch touchscreen of a larger handheld. Wireless is also its specialty, with fourth-generation cellular wireless available through the company's self-developed WiBro and mobile digital TV available through a DMB receiver. More conventional features of the Windows Mobile 6-driven handset are said to include legacy EVDO broadband, Bluetooth, and a 2-megapixel camera.

The phone is slated to go on sale through Korea's provider KTF in the near future. A release abroad is unlikely without adapting to MediaFLO for TV, WiMAX for Internet, or other more globalized wireless standards.
