New Samsung Phone with file viewing and remote control functionality

April 5, 2005 Samsung continued its gargantuan push to turn the mobile phone into the ultimate digital Swiss Army Knife last week when it introduced two new phones to the Korean market with quite intriguing new functionality. The new phones have the potentially very useful capability of viewing all the major document formats (MS Word, MS Excel, PDF, JPG and text files) plus the ability to double as a universal remote control. Oh, and it’s also a 1.3 megapixel camera and comes in anti-bacterial silver – a new nano-particle coating designed to minimise the potential for the phone to carry germs.

Quite legitimately, the new SPH-V6500 phone is expected to enhance productivity for businesspeople that may need to view business-critical documents anytime and anywhere. Data can be easily downloaded on the phone in its original file format through a PC connection, similar to an external storage device.

In addition, the 1.3 megapixel camera phone features a 16 million-color LCD and a remote control functionality that provides universal remote control of home appliances such as TV, VCR, air conditioner, PC, game console, DVD ad infinitum

The file viewer phone supports various multimedia functions. Users can watch Video-On-Demand (VOD) programs and offers seven different fonts that enable personalised messaging.
