The Samsung Ultra Messaging i600 is the world's thinnest 3G smartphone measuring only 11.8mm and weighing a mere 99g, and supports a full QWERTY key board. It is also the first smartphone that supports Web applications like podcasts and RSS Feeder, which scans websites for updates. It connects with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.0, was designed for work and play. It has two digital cameras and can be used for 3G video calls.
The device, powered by Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0, uses the new mobile protocol called HSDPA, or high-speed downlink packet access, that provides faster downloads of video and streaming music. The download speed is designed to be as fast as those provided by ADSL, or Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line, used in homes.
Running on Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology, the Ultra Messaging i600 instantly updates the mobile versions of Microsoft Office Outlook's Email, Calendar, Contacts and Tasks when synchronised with Exchange Server 2003 SP2. In addition to its push email capability, users can view Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF and image formats including BMP, JPEG and GIF with Picsel Viewer.
With two integrated digital cameras (1.3 megapixels in the back and VGA in the front), users can also conduct 3G video calls from the phone. Built-in Pocket MSN offers consumers a separate Inbox for Hotmail messages on their device. They will also be able to view their buddy list and chat instantly with their contacts, whenever and wherever they want.
