Verizon, Samsung and Microsoft launch i600 Windows Mobile Smartphone
Verizon Wireless announced the exclusive availability of the Samsung SCH-i600 Smartphone. The i600 is the first Microsoft Windows Mobile-based Smartphone from Samsung, and it's aimed at mobile professionals seeking a familiar PC experience,

The i600 is an integrated device with a sleek, clamshell design that includes Pocket Outlook, Pocket Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, Microsoft Windows Media Player and ActiveSync. It also features an SDI/O Expansion Slot for memory expansion, added hardware accessories and additional applications that can be loaded on the device.

The Samsung i600 allows Verizon Wireless customers to access the familiar and powerful Windows Mobile software user interface. Customers can synchronize information directly from their desktop PCs as well as over-the-air with Wireless Sync from Verizon Wireless. Easy to install and use, Wireless Sync and Windows Mobile will let customers send and receive e-mail and sync their tasks, calendar and contacts. The i600's single inbox allows customers to view all incoming e-mails, voicemails, and TXT messages at a glance, while the convenient one-handed navigation and predictive text entry eliminate the need for a stylus and make entering text and information quick and easy.

"The i600 is the ultimate, all-in-one tool for busy professionals," said Bill Stone, vice president of marketing for Verizon Wireless. "The foundation of Verizon Wireless' nationwide network in combination with business essential tools from Microsoft, Samsung's design innovation and Handango's downloadable content offering takes office mobility to a new level. The i600 will become the new standard for all-in-one wireless devices."

"The i600 is a powerful communication device for anyone who needs both a wireless phone and PDA at their fingertips," said Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president of Samsung's wireless terminals division. "We've developed the essential communication tool by combining a sleek clamshell design with Microsoft's familiar software and Verizon Wireless' high-speed network."

The i600 Smartphone features an advanced 65,000-color display. Consumers will find the i600 easy to use and loaded with useful features such as an external screen for caller ID, a speakerphone for easy hands-free communication and Advanced Voice Recognition from Voice Signal for voice activated phone book, digit dial and menu commands.
