put up the new Samsung C6625 Windows Mobile Standard 6.1 handset for pre-order and although the pre-order price isn't very exciting, this could become a decent device for those that are looking for a cheap QWERTY handset once it turns up with various network subsidies.
It might not be the most exciting phone in terms of features as it only has a 2.6in 320x240 display, a 2Megapixel camera (and a forward facing camera for video calls), tri-band GSM and single band HSDPA up to 3.6Mbit. However, it also has a built in FM radio, Bluetooth 2.0 and aGPS which makes it a slightly more appealing device. Sadly it seems to lack WiFi, a feature that Samsung regularly seems to shun.
It's not clear what CPU the C6625 is using, nor how much memory it has apart from 100MB of user accessible storage space which can be expanded via a microSD card. Interestingly the feature list also suggests that the C6625 offers remove lock, device and memory card encryption and even remote wipe. This might come in handy if you're prone to losing your mobile and carry a lot of sensitive data on it.
The C6625 measures 113.3x63x11.9mm (HxWxD) and weighs in at a reasonable 108g. The battery is meant to be good for up to 420 minutes of talk time and 300h of standby. You can get one on pre-order from Expansys for £249.99 ($360/€280), which isn't the best deal we've seen recently, but still quite affordable.
