Samsung launches Symbian SGH-i520 HSDPA handset

Mobile phones

As we mentioned yesterday, Samsung has announced the SGH-i-520 smartphone, based on the Symbian operating system and Nokia’s Series 60 (S60) user interface and offering HSDPA (super 3G connectivity).

HSDPA should mean internet downloads up to five times faster than standard smartphones. It’s a slider and features a 2MP and VGA camera, 2.3-inch QVGA TFT screen, music playback for MP3/AAC/AAC+/AAC+e/Real/WMA files, video playback in MPEG4/H.263/Real/H.264/WMV formats, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, full HTML browsing, mobile printing and 45MB on on-board memory, which can be boosted to 2GB via microSD card.

Still no news of a launch date, we’ll keep you posted.
