The 800MHz ARM11-powered Samsung Mondi WiMAX MID (SWD-M100) became commercially available today for those in Clearwire's mobile WiMAX service areas (currently Las Vegas, Atlanta, and Portland, OR) to put the "blazing fast internet in the palm of [their] hand." The 5.39-ounce Windows Mobile 6.1 slider can be put into the hands of those residing in other US states as well, of course, but those fingers will have to be content with using the Opera 9.5 web browser strictly over WiFi and presumably Bluetooth.
Beginning on August 1st, the 4.88" x 3.03" x 0.63" device will hit the shelves of Clearwire and Best Buy shops, where people can behold the 4.3" WVGA touchscreen in person and perhaps test out everything learned through perusing the user manual beforehand. For those who can't wait that long, LetsTalk.com already has the Mondi in stock for $450.
And guess who just ordered one![Samsung | Press release via Engadget]
