Mobius 2007: Samsung SGH-i620 in the flesh

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 29-Nov-2007 22:48

The Mobius conference has started here in Amsterdam and we had an opportunity to introduce ourselves and talk about the devices of choice, why we prefer those, etc.

Now we are listening to Jason Langridge who is talking about some new Windows Mobile applications and devices.

The Samsung SGH-i620 is a device I've seen before when it was being tested by Vodafone New Zealand but I wasn't allowed to talk about it. So here it is now:



It is a very small slider device, running Windows Mobile 6 Standar (Smartphone, no touch screen). It is HSDPA-enabled and really a good looking device.

I don't have information on when Vodafone New Zealand will be selling these, but I understand they are available in Europe now.

The Samsung SGH-i620 is using the same "carrousel" user interface you find in the Palm Treo 500v, which will be a standard for all Vodafone handhelds soon.

Also, Jason pointed out that the highly expected Office Mobile 6.1 is now available. It is a free upgrade for users that already have Office Mobile on their devices, and it will be available for purchase from Handango sometime soon if you don't this in your device.
