Samsung recently launched a new high end model, the SPH-i500 PalmOS smart phone. Samsung previously showcased the SPH-i500 as a prototype unit at CommunicAsia 2002 in June. The clamshell phone runs on PalmOS 4.1 and comes with a 65,000 TFT display. A nifty design element is the Graffiti area above the numeric pad. Both the display and Graffiti areas are touch sensitive and the stylus is stored nicely at the bottom right of the handset. The SPH-i500 is powered by a 66MHz Motorola Dragonball processor. While originally slated for the US CDMA market, a Samsung spokesperson revealed that a GSM version is on its way to Asia.

Here are some of the specifications of the SPH-i500:

  • CDMA
  • Dimensions: 87mm x 54mm x 21.5mm
  • Weight: 130g
  • Colour Display (65,000 colours TFT display)
