Samsung SGH-i640 Windows Mobile smartphone also revealed

We found out about the future Samsung SGH-i640 from a Vodafone Christmas model line-up announcement a little while ago. But little was known about it until now. It showed up at the GITEX show, giving us more information about its specifications.

If the the SGH-i640 on display is any indication, it will come with Windows Mobile 6 Standard, tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and single-band UMTS/HSDPA (making it an unlikely candidate for North American release), a 2.4-inch QVGA display, integrated GPS, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2MP camera, and a microSD slot. The unit on display also featured the same Vodafone Home screen utility that comes with the Palm Treo 500v.

Aside from Vodafone, no other carriers have yet to indicate that they will offer the SGH-i640.
