Is it a mobile phone, is it a UMPC?
RegHardware reports: [edited]
The SPH-P9200 runs Windows XP, has a 1GHz CPU, 512MB RAM and a 30GB hard drive.
A SIM card slot allows users to tune in to GSM/GPRS/Edge and 3G HSDPA cellular networks, and the machine features WiBro, Korea's answer to Mobile WiMax. Wi-Fi connectivity - most likely 802.11g - is built in too, but there's no mention of Bluetooth in the new model's specs, even though it featured on the P9000.
There's a 5in WVGA (854 x 480 pixel) display and a folding Qwerty keyboard.
The screen's principally operated by a stylus, although a mouse could be connected through one of the machine's multiple USB ports for use on a desktop, and there's a 1.3 megapixel camera.
Users will get around 2.5 hours of life with the standard battery. The machine weighs 650g.
Samsung hasn't yet confirmed when the SPH-P9200 will make it onto the market, but in time for a Korean Christmas could be a good guess.
