New Samsung TV phone with picture-in-picture

Samsung SCH-B710

The latest phone to be announced for Samsung's native Korean market is the SCH-B710, specifically designed around watching mobile TV. The screen rotates 90 degrees mainly to allow widescreen viewing, but curiously, this also appears necessary to access the keypad. A more welcome oddity may be use of picture-in-picture, an option still rare on TV phones. This works best in the 710's vertical orientation, since streams can retain a normal aspect ratio. Samsung will demonstrate the phone in a more formal manner at the upcoming Korea IT Show. [via Akihabara News]
