Information about the new Samsung i640v device have started to appear on various blogs and news pages:Samsung SGH-i640V

Engadget, Unwired, MSMobileNews and even a short video on YouTube.

It is a compact, elegant device with a slide out qwerty keypad and a thumb wheel incorporating D-Pad functions, Bluetooth 2.0 +ERD, 2.4 inch QVGA (landscape) screen and HSDPA capable radio which supports up to 3.6 Mbps data rate! Unfortunately the claims of GPS and WiFi are untrue - nice idea tho!

This device will be available through Vodafone and like the Palm 500v, is also running the Vodafone Terminal Platform Program (TPP) version of Windows Mobile 6.
