Samsung WiMAX Devices

Samsung helped usher in its first fourth-generation (4G) wireless devices on Thursday with the shipment of four new devices in its homeland. Highlighted in the news are the phones: the P9000 (pictured in back) at last brings the company's hybrid computer and phone to shops with a unique fold-out keyboard that uses WiMAX and earlier EVDO to connect to the Internet anywhere using Windows XP, complete with a front camera for video chats. The M8100 (not shown) takes the same connections and camera functions into a smaller slider phone design.

Both handsets will ship today along with the H1200 USB adapter and an unnamed PC Card to give WiMAX access to notebook PCs. Prices are unknown for their appearance on Korea's cell carrier KTF, though the three confirmed devices are part of Samsung's SPH series and may reach the US through Sprint, which is building out a WiMAX network over the next several months.
