Samsung's gaming phone
Coming out in Korea this month is the Samsung SCH-B550, a gaming cellphone with attributes to match. It has a joypad, TV output, a 3D graphics processor, and support for Korea's GXG gaming service. For the average user the phone will have MP3 playback, a two megapixel camera, and DMB TV broadcasts delivered by satellite. Gaming phones have traditionally not done as well in the United States, with the Nokia N-Gage being the only device with any longevity.
