Samsung W599 with CDMA, dual-SIM GSM and handwritten shortcuts

Samsung seem determined to cater for all possible options with their new SCH-W599 handset. Not only can the device handle both CDMA and GSM networks, but it actually has two SIM card slots meaning, like its D780 candybar contemporary, it can simultaneously log onto two separate GSM accounts. That means you can receive calls on, say, personal and business numbers using the same handset (keeping the CDMA account for extra-curricular mischief, perhaps).

The W599 is controlled predominantly via a 2.4-inch QVGA 260k colour passive touchscreen, complete with extending stylus to take advantage of the handwriting recognition. It also has directional controls encircling a scroll wheel for multiple navigation options. Samsung have also added something they’re calling “handwritten instructions”, which seems to be a way of triggering shortcuts by drawing symbols onto the screen.

There’s a 2-megapixel camera, MP3 and streaming media playback, Bluetooth, an FM radio with 20 presets and 34MB of onboard memory; a microSD slot is there to add to that when necessary. Most surprisingly, perhaps, all that cellular radio cleverness is squeezed into something not actually all that thick. The SCH-W599 is set for release in China, priced at 4,490 yuan ($650).
