Samsung SPH-P9000: Ultimate convergence

Samsungsphp9000_1

Next year, folks in Korea are getting rid of their cell phones, UMPCs, and PDAs. Okay, not really, but Samsung’s new SPH-P9000 has its sights set on obliterating the gadgets and putting an end to gear bags and large pockets as well. The 30GB convergence device runs Windows XP Professional on an unspecified 1GHz processor and a measly 256MB of RAM, while sporting a 5-inch WVGA touchscreen, nifty fold-out QWERTY keyboard, and 1.3-megapixel digital camera. There’s also Mobile WiMAX for Internet connectivity and CDMA EV-DO for standard phone usage.

I’m definitely keeping my eye on this one and will holler when pricing and global availability are announced. In the meantime, check out more pics of the 5.6" x 3.7" x 1.2" marvel at AVING USA and Akihabara News.

    Same specs as the 2 year old OQO Model 1+ that is smaller, has a thumb keyboard, and costs about $1200 at present. Come on Samsung, you can do a lot better than this!
