Samsung shows off WiMAX MID

by on27 March 2009


The SWD-M100 Mondi

Although the devices itself was previewed at the Mobile World Congress it now seems like Samsung is ready to unleash the SWD-M100 or the Mondi as it'll also be known as, upon the world. Well, ok, at least initially it will only be available from Clearwire in the US, but we'd expect to see it crop up elsewhere sooner or later.

The Mondi seems to have borrowed a few design cues from Nokia's N810, although it's Windows Mobile powered. It has a 4.3-inch touch screen display, WiMAX of course, WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, a microSD card slot, a rear 3 Megapixel camera and a front facing 0.3 Megapixel camera for video calls, TV-out and an accelerometer.

There's no word on what CPU the Mondi is using, nor how much memory it'll come with. However, it offers the Windows hardware button that is required for Windows Mobile 6.5 so presumably it has at least 128 if not 256MB of ROM.
