The IFA 2006 conference is going on now in Germany, and Samsung is there with the SGH-i600, an upcoming Windows Mobile Smartphone that will offer both Wi-Fi b/g and HSDPA.
It will have to compete with similar models like the Motorola Q and the HTC Excalibur, but neither of these offer both 3G support and Wi-Wi, as the i600 will.

This Samsung model will be a tri-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE phone, and will also have Bluetooth.
It will run the Smartphone version of Windows Mobile 5, so its 2.3-inch, QVGA display won’t function as a touchscreen.
The i600 will have 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM, plus it will include an easily-accessible microSD expansion slot.
Like most HSDPA devices, it will have two cameras to make video conferencing easier. The one on the back will have a 1.3 megapixel resolution and a flash.
Samsung says the SGH-i600 will be out some time during the fourth quarter of this year.
This device should not be confused with the Samsung SPH-i600, a Smartphone 2002 device that Verizon began offering several years ago.
