The latest satellite DMB phone by Samsung features a ?slide and rotate? form factor. Samsung?s B200 was first unveiled at MIPTV/MILIA in Cannes, France last April.
The phone?s 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.
Samsung claims that the B200 is designed to reduce power consumption, offering 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.
