A little over a week since we saw it leak into the wild, the Samsung Monte S5620 has been officially launched. A 3-inch capacitive touchscreen featurephone, the Monte S5620 packs UMTS/HSDPA (900/2100, 3.6Mbps) along with quadband GSM, WiFi, A-GPS and Bluetooth 2.1. The Monte also has a 3.2-megapixel camera with smile-shot and face detection.
While the Monte isn't a smartphone - in fact it runs Samsung's own TouchWiz 2.0 Plus platform - Samsung reckon it has much of the functionality of one. They're particularly proud of the handset's browsing abilities, which support full HTML and both landscape and portrait modes, and its social networking: there are Facebook and MySpace apps, as well as Twitter and Bebo widgets and a multi-platform IM client.
