Samsung Mondi Mobile WiMAX Device First-impressions

It seems a long time since we played with a non-functional prototype of Samsung's Mondi WiMAX MID back at Mobile World Congress in February.  Only last week the Windows Mobile 6.1 handheld saw its official launch, to take advantage of Clearwire's slowly spreading CLEAR WiMAX network, so imagine our surprise when a Mondi dropped, unannounced, through the SlashGear letterbox.  After the cut, check out our walkthrough video and an initial hands-on gallery, together with some early feedback in advance of our full review.

Samsung Mondi WiMAX MID previewed: keyboard poor & WM6.1 sluggish

Samsung Mondi WiMAX MID previewed: keyboard poor & WM6.1 sluggish

Samsung's Mondi may be tricky to find for retail right now, but an early unit has dropped over at PC World for them to try out.  Taking advantage of Clearwire's CLEAR WiMAX network, the Mondi MID has a slide-out keyboard, 4.3-inch 800 x 480 touchscreen and runs Windows Mobile 6.1; unfortunately, reviewer Ginny Mies found that while the screen is "gorgeous" the keyboard is too flush to be comfortable and the OS does its usual job of making things sluggish.

Samsung Mondi gets ARM11 CPU: doubts over MID performance

Samsung Mondi gets ARM11 CPU: doubts over MID performance

Samsung's Mondi WiMAX MID had something of a stretched out launch - first being demonstrated at MWC as the SWD-M100, then getting a quiet mention through the company's own RSS image feed, before Samsung finally came clean early this month.  What we haven't known until now is the processor powering the Mondi, and anybody hoping for something esoteric and interesting will be disappointed: it's an 800MHz ARM11 chip.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 31 2009

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 31 2009

Another week has come and gone and we are a week closer that that wondrous day parents look forward to all summer -- back to school! Lots of goings on this week and much of it was centered on mobile phones. Spotify announced that it would have an official app available on the iPhone that works for subscribers on Premium packages. Monday, a bit more light was shed on the much anticipated Android donut update, alas it's said to not be the OS 2.0 update we hoped for and won’t have multitouch.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 30 2009

Well another week has come and gone as time steadily marches on and like every other week here on SlashGear, it has been a busy one. Poor old Toshiba took the old adage "if you can’t beat them, join them" seriously on Monday and announced that it would be launching its own Blu-ray player by the end of 2009. That had to be hard to swallow for the execs who bet it all on HD DVD only to be defeated by Blu-ray. Also on Monday the slick HP Mini 5101 netbooks tipped up starting from $399. I'm not convinced we need another netbook on the market right now personally.
