Samsung AMOLED phone
Samsung has released one of its first cellphones using AMOLED technology, a special edition of the SPH-W2400. AMOLED is an improvement on the still-infrequent OLED display, providing better contrast and response, as well as wider viewing angles and a longer battery life. The phone is otherwise unchanged: its primary highlight is a twisting display, which makes it easier to watch DMB TV or local video clips, while still keeping the form factor slim.
It has Bluetooth and a two-megapixel camera, and supports a "3.5G" level of HSDPA for faster downloads and streaming. The new phone should already be carried by LG Telecom for 500,000 won ($541). [via Akihabara News]
