Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) has announced the upcoming availability of the Samsung Mondi™, the most advanced mobile WiMAX enabled handheld device in the U.S. The touch screen Mondi, which takes its name from the Latin word for “world,” is designed for use with the Clear™ mobile WiMAX service from Clearwire.
The Mondi carries many of the powerful features and uses of a laptop computer or netbook, but its compact slider form factor easily fits into the hand or pocket. GPS Navigation provided by Route 66 adds to the Mondi’s versatility.
Mondi packs a full -featured web browser, powered by Opera 9.5, which takes full advantage of the device’s 4.3-inch touch screen. To keep connected while on-the-go, Mondi offers best-in-class location based services and instant access to social networking websites. It also supports various services including Fring™, Gypsii™, and MS Live Messenger.
DivX technology produces highly compressed video suitable for mobile platforms that require minimal storage for the highest quality experience possible. Utilizing the Mondi’s large 4.3-inch touch screen, consumers will be able to playback DivX video stored on the device’s internal 4GB memory or on additional microSD flash cards.
The Samsung Mondi can connect to the Internet via WiFi or WiMAX and possesses a full-featured web browser that enables consumers to download and watch DivX content on the go.
