Samsung i600 (SGH-i600) Preview

 Samsung i600 Expected Q4 2006
15th September 2006

The Samsung i600 is the big brother to the i320 messaging phone. It's a Windows Mobile 5.0 device with 3G UMTS and HSDPA support plus WiFi, making the SGH-i600 a very capable device. Oh yes, it has infra-red, USB and Bluetooth connectivity too.

As with the i320, the Samsung i600 comes with support for Microsoft push email, it has a QWERTY keyboard and what appears to be a 320x240 pixel display. On the back is a 1.3 megapixel camera, and there's a secondary camera on the front for video calling. Samsung haven't confirmed it, but we're pretty sure the SGH-i600 comes with microSD expandable memory too.

 Samsung SGH-i600It's not an attractive phone, it's rather plain and slablike, but at least the SGH-i600 is an improvement over the i320's hideously cluttered layout.

From what we can determine, the Samsung i600 is almost exactly the same size as the i320 at around 111x59x12mm. We can't be sure of the weight, but it will probably be close to 100 grams which is very impressive for a 3.5G Windows smartphone.

You either love Windows Mobile or hate it, and the Samsung i600 isn't going to win any beauty competitions, but overall the SGH-i600 looks like a very versatile and impressive device. Samsung say that the i600 should be available from Q4 2006.
