Samsung has announced plans to launch a Tri band, GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) enabled handset with built-in camera in the Middle East market. The SGH-V200 is a flip-top mobile phone that will allow users to communicate via audio, image, text-based data or the internet - thanks to its built-in Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) 1.2-compliant browser. It also supports EMS (Enhanced Messaging Service) and MMS (multi-media messaging service).
DK Byeon, managing director, Samsung Gulf Electronics, said: “The SGH-V200 is a fun filled phone for people of all ages. It not only represents the light-hearted spirit of digital convergence, but with WAP and GPRS-enabled features, it is also an incredibly useful phone for wireless web and reliability considerations.”
For visual display, the Samsung SGH-V200 features an embedded digital camera that displays images over a thin film diode liquid crystal display (TFD-LCD). The TFD-LCD shows 65,000 colours at a resolution of 128 x 160. The V200 features 40-polyphonic ring tones as standard, but will allow users to upload their favourite songs as an alternative ring tone.
