Samsung's WiMAX Phone Mondi Comes on August 1

Mobile phone maker Samsung announced on Tuesday that Samsung Mondi, the Mobile WiMAX-enabled handheld device it already announced for the US market, would become commercially available in the country starting August 1, 2009. The new phone has been designed to work with Clearwire's Clear Mobile WiMAX service, and its availability comes in line with the recently announced launch of the 4G network in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland.

According to the company, the new Samsung Mondi (the Latin word for “world”) is capable of delivering double the download speeds that comparable devices would be able to deliver on 3G networks. Not only that the phone will benefit from the extended availability of WiMAX, but it will also offer Wi-Fi connectivity, so that users will enjoy strong connectivity at all times.

The upcoming phone features a solid black finish, a horizontally sliding full QWERTY keyboard, fast access to E-mail, Internet, video content and business applications, multimedia capabilities, and support for a wide range of services, including Fring, Gypsii and Windows Live Messenger. We also have to mention the GPS receiver it packs, along with a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, the 3-megapixel camera, the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 OS, or the Opera 9.5 that it comes pre-loaded with.

“The Mondi is a perfect example of the powerful and stylish innovation that Samsung is bringing to the U.S. mobile market,” said Omar Khan, senior vice president of Strategy and Product Management for Samsung Mobile. “The Mondi packs productivity tools, entertainment options and content management applications into a compact device that is flexible and intuitive.”

Users will also find that the Samsung Mondi comes with enhanced customization options, delivering a set of widgets users can place anywhere they like on the home screen. In addition, it offers easy connection to Microsoft Office Outlook Mobile and other business applications. “With the Samsung Mondi, people can take advantage of powerful broadband speeds to access familiar, easy-to-use software like Microsoft Office Mobile on a sleek, new mobile Internet device,” said Stephanie Ferguson, general manager of the Business Experiences Team at Microsoft Corp.

While currently available on Samsung's website and at the company’s authorized distributors, the new phone will become available for purchase through Clearwire's retail outlets starting August 1. In addition, customers will also find it available in select Best Buy stores located in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland. The handset will feature a price tag of $449, or $349 with a 2-year service agreement with Clearwire.
