Samsung unveils SPH-M8100 WiBro IMS handset, not a cell phone

Technically speaking, the SPH-M8100 is not a cell phone at all, as there are no CDMA or GSM radios on this thing. Instead, its primary connection is via WiMAX (or WiBro as it is called in Korea) and IMS, providing you with SIP-based VoIP. IMS, if you recall, stands for IP Multimedia Subsystem. This combination allows the beefy handset to boast such awesomeness as video conferencing, Push-to-All (PTT?), and other high-speed data services. There is also a T-DMB receiver on board, so you can stay up to date with all your favorite Korean dramas. What’s more, all of this can be done while travelling in a car at up to 60 km/h.

Powered by Windows Mobile 5.0, the M8100 boasts a slider form factor, 2.8-inch 65k color touchscreen display, TV-out, MMCmicro expansion, and a pair of cameras: a 2MP picture taker and a VGA unit for video calls. Wow, this really puts our “latest offerings” — like the RAZR V3t — to shame. More pics through the Read link.
