April 7, 2006 Samsung Electronics continues to push the boundaries of the convergent device at CEBIT earlier this year, first announcing an 8GB hard disk smart phone, and then trumping the camera phone market with the announcement of the SCH-B600 - a 10 mpx camera phone with 3X optical zoom and 5x digital zoom.

The “firsts” for the camera also include auto-focus, a fill-light function and a 1/2,000th of a second shutter speed. We’ve previously reported on the company’s string of world-firsts such as the first 5 MPX phone, 7 MPX phone and 8 MPX phone but the trend is not slowing by any measure – the SCH-B600 will be on the Korean market by mid-year and also includes a 2-inch, 16-million-pixel color TFT LCD screen, supports satellite digital multimedia broadcasting services and comes with a dual-face, dual-speaker system, TV-out and MP3 player. Not surprisingly, everyone queued up at CTIA to see the phone.
