Samsung announces Mondi mobile internet device

Today at CTIA, Samsung announced the Mondi, a small, Windows Mobile powered device, featuring WiMax and WiFi capabilities. The Mondi has a 4.3" touch screen, packs Bluetooth 2.1, a 3MP camera with video capture, a full slide out QWERTY keyboard, HDMI out, and 4GB of internal storage.

Opera 9.5 comes pre-loaded as a web browser, and even though the Mondi is equipped with a microphone, voice is not supported, so no VoIP calls. It has access to push email, MMS, SMS, and IM.

The Mondi will be available later this year. We'll try to get some hands-on with the device tomorrow and bring you our impressions. Since there's no WiMAX here in Vegas, we can't really test the one feature that makes this device special.

Update: We played with the Mondi at MWC back in February:
