SCH B550, the new Samsung bomb
“This morning, while looking at the Samsung December catalog, I found the SCH-B550. This phone immediately made me think about the Sky IM-U140, but unlike it, the SCH-B550 is primarily designed for video games (3D graphics, Joypad, TV output, GXG support in Korea…). The SCH-B550 has many other features, such as the DMB mobile TV, an MP3 player, a 2Mpix camera, Bluetooth… If you’re interested in it, this phone is only available in Korea.” Pictures at akihabaranews.com
