Samsung Electronics announced the launch of its latest satellite DMB phone (model number: SCH-B200/SPH-B2000) with a unique "slide and rotate" form factor. Samsung's B200, which was first unveiled at MIPTV/MILIA in Cannes, France last April, is the most recent addition to its growing line-up of satellite DMB phones.
The phone's unique design allows users to first slide, and then rotate the LCD screen 90-degrees for a landscape viewing orientation that is more ideal for watching broadcasted video content. Satellite DMB programs, along with gaming, photo-taking, MP3 playing, and VOD features can now be enjoyed with more convenience.
The B200 has a mini pedestal attached to the battery which allows the phone to stay upright during TV viewing. It is capable of multitasking and allows users to talk on the phone and send SMS while watching satellite DMB content.
The B200 is specially designed to reduce power consumption - ideal for continuous DMB viewing for up to three hours. It comes packed with the latest features, such as 2-megapixel camera, 256MB TransFlash external memory, TV output function, and wired and wireless mobile printing.
