Samsung Launches "Mondi" WiMAX-Enabled Mobile Internet Device

Samsung Mobile is launching the "Mondi" -- a mobile WiMAX-enabled handheld device for the Clear Mobile WiMAX service now available in Atlanta, Las Vegas, Portland, OR and future WiMAX markets.

The Mondi slides open horizontally to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The device offers instant access to E-mail, Internet, video content and business applications. The device also supports various services including Fring, Gypsii, and Windows Live Messenger. The Mondi is equipped for GPS Navigation through Route 66, providing turn-by-turn directions.

The Mondi's compact design provides the user with a more mobile form factor and ease-of-use than the typical laptop or netbook. While it is small enough to fit into the user's hand or pocket, the Mondi packs an Opera 9.5 web browser, which takes full advantage of the device's 4.3-inch touch screen.

The device will be sold at Clearwire retail outlets and select Best Buy stores located in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland, OR.
