Samsung announces Widescreen mobile phone for mobile TV
Samsung Mobile has announced Samsung Widescreen mobile phone , the first of its kind in Australia, brings an enhanced Mobile TV offering to life for Australian consumers.

“Every so often we are lucky enough to witness a revolution in mobile phone technology and the Samsung Widescreen is right at the forefront of this revolution,” said Josh Delgado, Director – Samsung Mobile. “As a
leader in mobile phone design and technology, Samsung continues to push boundaries and improve services to
bring consumers real benefits. The Samsung Widescreen mobile is just what consumers are looking for in a
Mobile TV and entertainment device.”

With a dual flip action, the Samsung Widescreen mobile allows consumers to make standard calls with the traditional flip action. However, open the phone sideways and consumers have a mini-laptop with a full QWERTY keyboard and broadband speeds of up to 7.2Mbps thanks to HSDPA (850 MHz). The Samsung Widescreen can also connect to GSM/GPRS/EDGE networks (900, 1800, 1900 MHz).

The handset sports a 2.3-inch LCD display QVGA (320 x 240 pixel resolution)) LCD capable of showing up to 262 K colours. Users can access the new Mobile FOXTEL electronic programming guide (EPG) and surf 33 channels. The dual speakers give consumers the ability to watch their favourite programs in stereo sound.

The Samsung Widescreen mobile allows consumers to program their Foxtel iQ set-top box to record their favourite programs, even when they’re away from home.

“People are increasingly busy and time poor,” continued Delgado. “The Samsung Widescreen mobile phone lets consumers maximise their time or simply enjoy a moment of downtime. Internet and Mobile TV have never been more accessible. Consumers can now enjoy Mobile TV with a twist.”

In addition to the fast mobile internet and Mobile TV, the Samsung Widescreen offers a range of additional
features including 2-megapixel camera, stereo MP3 player and Bluetooth capability.
