SAMSUNG Launches Satellite DMB Phone that Slides and Rotates

SEOUL, Korea - July 26, 2005 : 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 games, photo-taking, MP3 player, and VOD features can now be
enjoyed with more convenience.
The B200 also 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.
Kitae Lee, President of Samsung’s Telecommunication Network Business
said, “Samsung has been leading the DMB phone market with the introduction
of unique phones with new form factors that enhance ease-of-use and viewing
pleasure.” He added, “Samsung plans to continue offering new DMB phones
with cutting-edge features and innovative designs.”
