Samsung Electronics introduces its first "file viewer" phones, models SPH-V6500 and SCH-V650, which allow consumers to view document and image files over the mobile phone. This phone is expected to enhance productivity of businesspeople that are constantly on the go but need to view business-critical information, such as PDF files.

Data can be downloaded on the phone in its original file format through a PC connection, similar to an external storage device. Files that are readable on the phone include Microsoft Word and Excel, as well as PDF, JPG, and TXT files.

In addition, the 1.3 megapixel camera phone features a 16 million-color LCD and a remote control functionality that provides universal control of home appliances including the air conditioner, PC, game console, TV, DVD, and navigation in automobiles, as well as TV, VCR, and home karaoke. It also acquired the S-Mark certification from the Korean government for its anti-bacterial silver nano-particle coating.

The file viewer phone supports multimedia functions. Consumers can watch VOD programs and find the words to their favorite songs. It also offers 7 different fonts that enable personalized messaging. In particular, the SCH-V650 uses the WIPI 2.0 version, the Korean wireless internet platform.
