The SGH-i500 is a tri-band GSM/GPRS device running at 900/1800/1900 MHz. It's a flip-phone design, with the main screen and application buttons on the top half of the device and the number pad on the bottom half. That in and of itself is not very new. It measures 87 x 54 x 27 mm when closed and weighs 150 grams. What's new is that it's powered by an Intel PXA262 ARM-compatible processor running at a whopping 300 MHz, the fastest CPU of any Palm OS device yet announced. It's also the first Palm OS smart phone to use an ARM processor for the handheld side rather than a 68k-based Dragonball processor.
