SPH-P9000, the Samsung WiMAX and CDMA EV-DO PDA-PC

Samsung just busted the entire planet with their latest toy! If you thought Sony had something cool with their UX90, well, think again! Here’s the SPH-P9000 Deluxe MITs, a PC shaped like a PDA, with Windows XP, a 30GB hard disk, 256MB of RAM, a 5” display, a 1GHz CPU, WiMAX, CDMA EV-DO, and a 1.3Mpix camera. It measures 143x94x29mm and weights 580g. That’s it, I officially declare now that Japan has dropped down to the level of Europe and the USA, in terms of geekiness. Korea has become the almighty country! For proof: here’s 9 photos!

    SPH-P9000 – interesting device. How much is it?

  • Al

    I think the sph p9200 is a great device and the US market desparately needs a jacket size computer. Why is it that none of these devices ever make it for sale here? Will there be any way to buy one for US use? I would be happy without the wimax as it is not in US yet but just the rest of the functionality would still be worth it.
