Samsung Electronics has announced plans to launch a WiFi-enabled smart phone in Korea
this month. The phone, known as the SPH-M4300, features a 1.3-megapixel camera and a 2.8-inch LCD. It runs the Pocket PC operating system from Microsoft (does anyone hear "WiFi virus"?!) and will be incompatible with GSM. One would expect a GSM equivalent of the WiFi-enabled phone for the coming months, given that Samsung has tasked itself with regaining its number 2 status in the worldwide handset market, which it lost to Motorola in the last quarter of last year.
