Microsoft was in attendance at Mobile World Congress quietly showing Samsung's latest Windows Mobile smartphone, the C6625. The C6625, which was code named the Valencia, looks very similar to its brothers here in the states, the BlackJack II and the Epix, and offers a full QWERTY keyboard and navigational d-pad on its front.

One noticeable difference in the new smartphone is its user interface, which offers what looks to be a non-touch version of Samsung's TouchWhiz interface, including a widget bar running down the left side of the screen.

This Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard device supports GSM/EDGE on the 900/1800/1900MHz bands and 3G UMTS/HSDPA connectivity on Europe's 2100MHz band to provide email instantly on the go. A wide 2.6" display screen offers QVGA (320x240 pixel) resolution to browse the web, view photos, or check email. Other features include a 2 megapixel camera, aGPS, and Bluetooth. The C6625 offers up to 7 hours of talk time or 12.5 days of standby.

The C6625 appears to be a variant of the C6620 that is offered by Italy's TIM network. We have no official launch information on the device, but Expansys has the product listed with an availability date of late March.
