Samsung D900i

30 May 2007
Written by David Hall

The new D900i is Samsung’s latest creation, and as the model number suggests, it is based on the highly successful D900. Integrated 3mpx digital cameras are slowly becoming the ‘standard’ for high end handsets, just like 2mpx cameras have been for some time.

The D900i looks practically identical to the D900, which recently won the GSM Association “Best GSM Mobile Handset 2007” award. The D900i is .5mm larger than the D900, and weighs exactly the same (85grams). The D900i will be available in black or grey, and has a pure metallic body. The sliding form factor hides the numerical keypad when it is not needed, and with a light push it is revealed.

Moving onto the actual features of the handset, there’s no doubt the 3.13mpx digital camera is the most impressive. The D900i is one of few handsets from Samsung to include a 3mpx digital camera with auto focus. The camera has 4x digital zoom and can record up to 60 minutes of VHS quality video (MPEG4/H.263 format) onto the internal memory, which comes in at around 60MB. The memory can be expanded by way of microSD memory cards, up to 2GB.

A 2.12” TFT LCD brings the D900i to life in 262,144 different colours. The resolution of the display is 240 x 320 pixels, and if you’d like to share images and video stored on the handset with your friends you can do so via the TV-out port on the handset.

Supporting the GSM 850, 900, 1800, and 1900MHz networks, the D900i is 2G quad-band compatible. It fully supports the EDGE and GPRS packet data protocols, and has an integrated web browser for viewing online content. The handset also supports e-mail messaging over the POP3 or IMAP4 protocols. SMS/EMS and MMS messaging are also supported, and the D900i has a built in T9 predictive text dictionary.

Bluetooth version 2.0 is supported, with the stereo Bluetooth A2DP profile included. Bluetooth Printing Protocol is also included, and the D900i is fully compatible with PictBridge for direct printing via the USB data-cable (with compatible printing devices). USB version 1.1 can be used to transfer data to and from the handset with a computer – a cable and the appropriate software is included in the sales package.

The Samsung D900i is expected to be available in Australia early June.
