Samsung SGH-i200 unboxed

If you are considering the switching over to Windows Mobile from a Nokia or other feature phone then you way well be looking for an entry level WM device to start off with. That’s just where Samsung are pitching their SGH-i200 and even add the tag line ‘My Very First Smartphone’ to their branding.


The Samsung SGH-i200


So the i200 is a fairly basic handset but don’t be fooled, there are some features in the spec that you may expect to find in higher-end devices. For starters you get HSDPA and Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, in fact about the only thing missing from the i200 is WiFi support!

Our reviewer Steve was so impressed with the Windows Mobile Standard platform in the HTC S740 that he thought it would be great to see what a device without QWERTY could offer. Steve will be reviewing the i200 over the next few weeks so here we have the unboxing video to give you a taster of what the i200 is all about.

Microfi Nitrogen MP3 player for Windows Mobile

image Its long been a big moan of mine that the media capabilities of Windows Mobile devices are inferior to the iPhone and it looks like I am not alone in thinking this as the guys over at XDA have decided to make their own MP3 player. Microfi Nitrogen is a native Windows Mobile application (unmanaged code) that allows you to play MP3 songs stored on your Pocket PC device. It features a file browser, full skin support, “Shuffle” and “Repeat” modes, a 10-band equalizer with preset support, a built-in sleep mode and a command to blank screen to prevent energy waste while playing music. More details with downloads after the break.
