At the Mobile WiMAX Summit 2006 in Korea Samsung unveiled the SPH-P9000 a convergence device capable of voice and multimedia data communications through Mobile WiMAX technology. The device utilizes Mobile WiMAX for Internet connectivity and CDMA EV-DO for voice communications. The SPH-P9000 runs on Windows XP Professional and it is no bigger than a portable DVD player. Folded away neatly is a QWERTY keyboard which makes typing very easy compared to a touch screen. Other specs include Camera for web conferencing, 30 GB hard drive and a 5 inch WVGA screen all packed into a device which weighs a bit more than one pound.

Kitae Lee, President of the Telecommunication Network Business at Samsung Electronics, says “Our new SPH-P9000 is just one of the few Mobile WiMAX convergence devices to be introduced to the world. Samsung will expand our portfolio of mobile convergence devices, as we expect to expand our global Mobile WiMAX services globally.“ The SPH-P9000 will be launched in Korea first half of 2007.
