Samsung SCH-W890 dual-DMB phone: made for Korean TV addicts

Samsung is launching a new device in its domestic market. The model name is SCH-W890 and it is sold through SK Telecom (NYSE: SKM).

The clamshell-shaped device comes with specs that include a 2.8-inch WQVGA display (quite a screen for a clamshell), 2-megapixel camera along with front-facing camera for video calls, Bluetooth, text-to-speech capability, SOS function, Subway Maps, media player and I guess a microSD memory card slot. In addition — and this is where it gets interesting — the SCH-W890 rocks support for both satellite and terrestrial DMBs for South Korean mobile TV viewers. To put it in other words, you’ll have TV on your mobile phone even in places where terrestrial signals can’t reach you (and presumable satellite signals can).
