Samsung Electronics announced the launch of its fourth satellite digital multimedia broadcasting (DMB) phone, model SCH-B250, following the release of the B100, B130 and B200.
Samsung's new B250 DMB phone reportedly supports horizontal viewing and is a folder type phone with a pivotal LCD screen, which rotates 90 degrees into landscape mode.
With the B250, users can make phone calls or send and receive text messages while watching TV on the phone. The DMB broadcast received by the phone can also be relayed to a regular TV.
The B250 has external buttons that allow users to play MP3 files without opening the phone. The 128-polyphonic sound chip has been built in to provide exquisite ring tones.
The B250 is also equipped with a 2megapixel camera and the photo editing function has been upgraded. The File Viewer function provides access to Microsoft Office or PDF files, and a 330,000-word dictionary is included in the software.
The B250 also supports external memory of 256MB, IrDA and mobile banking capabilities for user convenience. The phone is available in Korea at around U.S. $700.
