VIDEO: Samsung launches WiMAX Mondi

Samsung has announced the launch of the Samsung Mondi, describing it as the most advanced mobile WiMAX enabled handheld device in the US.

The Windows Mobile 6.1-powered touchscreen MID will launch in the States on the Clear mobile WiMAX service from Clearwire as well as offering Wi-Fi hook up.

With a sliding form factor that reveals a QWERTY keyboard, the Mondi offers a 4.3-inch screen, a web browser powered by Opera 9.5, Bluetooth, GPS and a 3-megapixel camera.

It's unlikely the device will launch in the UK - Milton Keynes is about the only area in the country that enjoys the high-speed connectivity.
