Samsung SGH-i620 aka Sangria hands-on

I had a chance to get some hands-on time with the Samsung Sangria here at Mobius. Make sure to click through for a walkthrough video (special thanks to the lovely Judie Lipsett from GearDiary).

The Sangria can be summed up as applicious, thanks to the ipod-like scroll wheel and the white chassis. I found the portliness form-factor refreshing. The slide out keyword is comfortable to use and the UI is also easy to use.

The Samsung SGH-i620 ultra messaging device features a 65k color TFT display screen with QVGA (320 x 240 resolution). It’s a GSM triband, HSDPA, EDGE and GPRS device. There’s a hidden 2-megapixel camera situated on the back and a secondary camera on the front for video call. The microSD slot literally ate my 8GB microSD card. Yes, it literally ate the card. By the time we managed to pull the card out, my 8GB card no longer works. So Samsung, you owe me a new 8GB microSD card.

At the heart of the Sangria is Windows Mobile 6 (see video). Price is still undetermined (please check back later today) and it should be available as of today.
