CES 2006: Samsung i830
In answer to Palm’s Treo 700w, this is Samsung‘s take on the smartphone. It is also powered by Windows Mobile and incorporates EVDO technology. The screen is slightly less impressive than Palm’s device, offering a 2.8″ 65k colour touch-screen with a resolution of 240 x 320. It does have a pretty nifty sliding keyboard action which is always nice but has a notable lack of camera. Still, that can only be good for those who work for one of the increasing number of companies that are discouraging phone cameras and should make it easier to blag one off your boss. The i830 will be launched stateside on January 12th but there’s no pricing or UK launch details yet.
