Samsung Mobile launches WiMAX-enabled Mobile Internet Device (with video)
Posted on 1-Apr-2009 21:21 | Tags Filed under: News





Samsung Mobile has announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Mondi, an advanced mobile WiMAX enabled handheld device. The touch screen Mondi, which takes its name from the Latin word for “world,” is designed for use with the Clear mobile WiMAX service from Clearwire in the U.S.

The Mondi carries many of the powerful features and uses of a laptop computer or netbook, but its compact slider form factor easily fits into the hand or pocket. GPS Navigation provided by Route 66 adds to the Mondi’s versatility. Available in a solid black finish, this device extends horizontally to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The Mondi is packed with multimedia features that offer instant access to E-mail, Internet, video content and business applications.

Mondi packs a full-featured web browser, powered by Opera 9.5, which takes full advantage of the device’s 4.3-inch touch screen. To keep connected while on-the-go, Mondi offers best-in-class location based services and instant access to social networking websites. It also supports various services including Fring, Gypsii, and Microsoft Live Messenger.

The Mondi is completely customizable, thanks to a set of widgets that can be dragged and dropped anywhere on the display screen for easy viewing and use.

WiFi connectivity offers the business user fast and simple connections to Outlook Email / Calendars, Microsoft Office and many other vertical business applications outside the Clear service area. For the multimedia user, this device offers the ability to download and watch movies, listen to music or play games.

The Samsung Mondi is based on Windows Mobile 6.1 and comes with Microsoft Outlook and Windows Mobile Office. In addition to its 4GB of internal memory it also comes with a 3.0 megapixel digital camera and camcorder.

Clearwire currently provides mobile WiMAX service in Portland, Ore. and Baltimore, MD. The company expects to bring the service to more than 80 markets by 2010. Some of the major markets expected to launch Clear service this year include Atlanta, Las Vegas, Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Honolulu, Philadelphia, and Seattle.
