Samsung P200 (SGH-P200) - UMA Phone

 Samsung P200 Expected Q3 2006
25th July 2006

The Samsung P200 is a conventional looking sliding phone on the surface, but underneath it's actually a WiFi enabled handset capable of UMA / VOIP (Unlicensed Mobile Access / Voice Over IP) phone.

It's not the first UMA phone that we've seen announced - the Nokia 6136 was the first - but the SGH-P200 is the first to market, launching first in Italy.

Essentially, UMA is a second generation WiFi based VOIP protocol which allows the users to switch easily between a standard cellular call and a WiFi based one. Clearly, you'll need a compatible WiFi hotspot which you'll then have to configure, so some assembly will be required with the P200.

UMA is the clever bit with the Samsung P200, but beyond that it's a very conventional slider phone. It looks exactly like a whole lot of other Samsung sliders, and comes with a 176x220 pixel display, 1.3 megapixel camera, an MP3 player, 80Mb of non-expandable memory and Bluetooth is a fairly lightweight device coming in at 95 grams.

Samsung say that after the P200's launch in Italy, it should then become available in other European countries during the latter half of 2006.
