Verizon Wireless releases the Samsung SCH-i730 Pocket PC Phone for CDMA EV-DO
Confirming the May 2005 announcement of its plans to release new data plans, software and mobile devices, Verizon Wireless is now releasing the Samsung SCH-i730 Pocket PC Phone Edition.

The new device supports CDMA EV-DO (Evolution-Data Optimized), Wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) and Bluetooth (service discovery, file transfer, generic access, handsfree, headset, HID keyboard, object exchange, object push, serial port and ActiveSync).

With the Samsung i730, Verizon Wireless customers get quick wireless access to the Internet via Verizon Wireless’ BroadbandAccess. Users will however not be able to connect their laptops to the fast CDMA EV-DO network via Bluetooth since the software does not offer the DUN (dial-up network) profile.

Measuring 5.2 x 2.8 x 0.6 inches and weighing 5.5 ounces with a standard battery, the i730 fits easily into a suit pocket, purse or briefcase. It has a full QWERTY slider keyboard, and a 65,000 color touch screen (240 x 320 pixel, 2.8”).

An Intel PXA 272 (520 MHz) processor powers the new Pocket PC Phone Edition, with 64 MB RAM and 128 MB Flash (for OS and storage) and an SD I/O expansion slot allow for scalable memory expansion and other peripherals.

The Samsung SCH-i730 runs the Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition software, which includes Pocket MSN Messenger, Microsoft Reader 2.0 for Pocket PC, Windows Media Player 10, Microsoft Pictures, and ActiveSync, plus pocket versions of Outlook, Word, and Excel.

For multimedia lovers, the new phone comes with SRS WOW XT Audio and Advanced Voice Recognition that allows consumers to dial numbers, find contacts and open applications with voice commands.

The i730 retails for US$599.99 with a two-year customer agreement and will be available on 7 July in over 1,900 Verizon Wireless Communications stores including those in Circuit City as well as in Best Buy and select RadioShack stores nationwide.
