Although not covered in the Samsung Press Conference, it IS in the Press Kit, so therefore Samsung have officially announced the SGH-i200 Smartphone!

Deets are very thin on the ground currently (and i'll update this post as more info surfaces), however specs include:

- HSDPA /UMTS / EDGE

- 2MP Camera

- 2.3" QVGA screen

- Windows Mobile 6 Standard

- 116.7 x 50.8 x 11.8 mm

I've posted the press shot and also a sizeasy size comparison below (after the jump for news page readers!) Edit: Now with video hands on! Device DEFINITELY doesn't have WiFi, and is quite a nice, simple Smartphone! I am pretty sure this was running WinMo 6.1, but with the 'About' page removed...

Enjoy! :)

Nice to see a traditional 9-key device, it's a bit wide though...how about a sizeasy with the Vox? :)

YES... Finally... A PHONE and not a crappy QWERTY device.. Even though a bit wide and a bit long.

Don't suppose there is any info on prices just yet? If not, do we at least know what price category it could fall under, the budget end perhaps? I quite like the looks of this but not sure if i'd sacrifice my S710 for it, more thinking it'd be good as a back-up option if relatively cheap.

Well yesterday I got hold of one. It seems to be a 240 MHz cpu(ARM9260EJ-S) with a 264MHz Nomadik STn8810 multimedia cpu.

Indeed a very nice device but basic.

I really love that phone! If you don't really need WLAN and want a 12 key phone that can be used with one hand - there is no better choice for a real low price (55 EUR at eBay!)! :D

Infos on new ROM etc can be found on XDA-Dev.
