Samsung SCH-i730 is a dual-band CDMA phone. It features 65k TFT display, QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, EV-DO high-speed data, Microsoft Mobile for Pocket PC Phone Edition 2003, GPS, SD memory expansion slot and built-in speakerphone.
The i730 will be a replacement for the i700, which came out last year.
Like some other recent Pocket PCs, this model will use a traditional tablet design, but it will sport a small QWERTY keyboard that is exposed when the screen slides up.
The i730 will have several improvements over its predecessor, including a megapixel camera and support for EV-DO networks, which means it will have a theoretical maximum data-transfer speed of 2.4 MBps.
This handheld will run Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC Second Edition, so its 240-by-320-pixel display will offer both portrait and landscape modes.
Samsung says it will have a 500 MHz XScale processor. This isn't a standard clock-speed for this chip, so the company may be approximating.
It will have an SD slot with SDIO support and built-in stereo speakers.
The exact dimensions of the i730 are not known, but those who have seen prototypes say it will be just slightly bigger than palmOne's Treo 600 series.
