Bevy of Samsung WiMAX devices hits Korea

Samsung WiMAX in Korea

Samsung today announced four new WiMAX devices, all intended for the company's home country of South Korea, which has one of the world's few operational WiMAX networks. Topping the list is the SPH-P9200, a UMPC with Windows XP, a 1GHz Via CPU, and 512MB of RAM. Particularly notable is its foldable, desktop-sized QWERTY keyboard, and the option of Wi-Fi and HSDPA as alternate connection methods. The SPH-M8200 meanwhile is a slider smartphone with both EVDO and WiMAX, further boasting Bluetooth, DMB TV and a large touchscreen.

The two remaining devices are USB modems, the SPH-H1300 and SWT-H200K. No prices or release dates have been published, but the devices are unlikely to come to North America, mainly since the USA's fledgling WiMAX networks are underdeveloped. [via Akihabara News]
