SAMSUNG Unveils its New Satellite DMB phone

SEOUL, Korea – April 11, 2005: Samsung Electronics
will showcase its third satellite Digital Multimedia Broadcasting (DMB)
phone (SCH-B200) at MIPTV/MILIA in Cannes, France from April 11 to 15,
following the release of the SCH-B100 and SCH-B130.



Samsung’s new B200 boasts a horizontal screen that allows users
not only to benefit from easier viewing of DMB services, but also to comfortably
enjoy multimedia functions, such as photography and games. In addition,
it is the first model to adopt Samsung’s innovative “slide
and rotation” form factor, where the screen slides up and rotates
horizontally, further enhancing user convenience.



Its large capacity battery (1300mAh) allows users to continuously view
the screen for more than three hours, resolving the battery-depletion
problem that has plagued DMB phones. The B200 also has a 2-megapixel camera,
allowing users to enjoy photo quality that is as good as digital cameras.
The versatile phone offers a variety of multimedia functions, including
MP3 player and video viewing and users can enjoy clear video reception
through the phone’s 260,000-color, 2.2-inch wide LCD screen.



Moreover, the B200 provides a TV-out function, while supporting an external
memory and offering a file-viewing function which allows fingertip access
to a variety of files, such as Microsoft Word and Excel.



Samsung Electronics plans to release the B200 within the first half of
this year. The company launched Korea’s first satellite DMB phone
(SCH-B100) in January of this year and has recently completed the development
of a terrestrial DMB phone (SPH-B1200).



The MIPTV/MILIA is one of the world’s largest broadcasting and audiovisual
exhibitions. Traditionally an exhibition for broadcasting and film companies,
more and more telecommunications companies are participating in the event
with the growing convergence of the telecommunications and broadcasting
industries.
