SAMSUNG Unveils First Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) Phone In North America

LAS VEGAS, January 5, 2006- Samsung Telecommunications America
(Samsung) and Cingular Wireless today announced the upcoming market availability of
the Samsung zx10, the first 3G/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS)
phone in North America. UMTS enables data connections similar to broadband speeds,
making it possible for consumers using the Samsung zx10 via Cingular Wireless service
to watch streaming video, download games and access email faster than ever before.
The zx10’s integrated multimedia features, including video streaming/audio
streaming and 1.3 megapixel camera, make the most of the phone’s high-speed UMTS
technology. When downloading content, the zx10 takes approximately 40 seconds to
download a 1MB file, at speeds ranging from 220 to 320 kbps.
With the recent announcement of Cingular Video™, an on-demand streaming
video service that delivers fast, personalized access to a variety of entertainment and
information services, consumers using the zx10 will be able to quickly access exclusive
content, including video clips, ringtones and 3D games. Using the phone’s internal
50MB of shared memory and microSD™ memory card slot, consumers can store
volumes of digital entertainment to access anytime, anyplace.

"Samsung has incorporated cutting-edge UMTS technology into its zx10 giving
consumers high-speed connectivity to access their favorite music and video content," said
Peter Skarzynski, senior vice president, Samsung. “"This device is another example of
Samsung’s leadership in mobile entertainment. We’re making audio and video on
demand a reality."
