Samsung Introduces SCH-B250 Satellite DMB Phone
Samsung Electronics announced the launch of its fourth satellite DMB phone, the SCH-B250, completing a series initiated by the previous release of the B100, B130 and B200 models.

Samsung's new B250 brings a more compact design and improved features while maintaining the basic product concept of previous DMB phones, which supports horizontal viewing. The B250 is also the smallest Samsung DMB handset to date and is compatible with CDMA2000 EV-DO networks (800MHz).

The B250 is a folder type with pivotal LCD screen which rotates 90 degrees into landscape mode. The B250 follows the same basic design as the popular SCH-V500 camera phone that went on the market in August of last year.

With the B250, users can make phone calls or send and receive text messages even while watching TV on its 240x320 pixels TFT LCD. The DMB broadcast received by the phone can also be relayed to a regular TV through a TV output connector.

The B250 has external buttons that allow users to play MP3 files without opening the phone. The 128-polyphonic sound chip has been built in to provide exquisite ring tones.

It is also equipped with a 2megapixel camera and the photo editing function has been upgraded. This allows the user to change facial expressions on photos and other effects, including changing the picture frame design.

The File Viewer function provides access to Microsoft Office or PDF files, and a 330,000-word dictionary is included in the software. The B250 also supports external memory of 256MB using TransFlash memory cards, IrDA, and mobile banking capabilities for user convenience.

The phone is available in Korea and suggested price is about US$700.
