Samsung Mobile Showcases 4G Wireless Technology at CES 2010
As part of Verizon Wireless’ LTE Innovation Center demonstrations, Samsung Mobile is showcasing new and emerging products, including digital picture frames, mobile Internet devices (MID) and digital cameras, which utilize practical applications through a connected multimedia ecosystem.
LTE (News - Alert) Media Frame from Samsung demonstrates the scope of expanding the LTE ecosystem into other consumer electronic devices such as MIDs, digital cameras, online galleries, social networking sites and more. The ultra-slim device features a high-resolution, 10” display with touch screen, multimedia capabilities and an ultra-slim design.
Samsung’s digital camera includes a large touch screen LCD display. It is capable of HD 720p quality video at 30 frames per second. Through an LTE-connected multimedia ecosystem, users can upload pictures and videos over the LTE network to the picture frame or online social networking sites. The camera can also be used to stream real-time live wireless video from a mobile device to the LTE media frame.
Another device on display at CES is Samsung Mondi, an advanced Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX (News - Alert))-enabled handheld device in the U.S., along with WiMAX-enabled USB dongles, SPH-M8400, SWC-U200, and SPH-H1300, and a WiMAX-enabled PC card, SWC-E100, according to company sources.
Samsung Mondi slides open horizontally to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard. The device can harness upload and download speeds that nearly double comparable devices running on 3G networks while taking advantage of the widespread connectivity of Mobile WiMAX, claim Samsung officials.
The device is also equipped with Wireless Fidelity (WiFi (News - Alert)), allowing users to keep strong wireless connections while working outside designated Mobile WiMAX markets. It comes with multimedia features that offer instant access to E-mail, Internet, video content and business applications.
Mondi supports various services including Fring, Gypsii, and Windows Live Messenger. The Mondi is equipped for Global Positioning System (GPS) navigation through Route 66, providing turn-by-turn directions, company officials added.
Back in September, Samsung Mondi also received the “Best of 4G Award” in the Mobile Internet Device category at the 4G World Conference and Expo in Chicago, TMCnet reported.
Samsung Mobile has also forged a partnership deal with MetroPCS to work together to deliver advanced LTE solutions in devices and services as well as new and innovative network solutions.
