Samsung's First Symbian Series 60 Based Smartphones Powered By TI's Wireless Technology
Texas Instruments Incorporated announced that Samsung Electronics has selected technology from TI's OMAP platform and Bluetooth solutions for its first Symbian OSTM and Series 60-based smartphones, the SGH-D720 and SGH-D730. Available in either clamshell (D730), or slider (D720) designs, the GSM/GPRS smartphones from Samsung are leveraging TI wireless technology to offer a variety of feature-rich entertainment and productivity applications, including RealOne Player and Bluetooth multi-game and music maker.
TI's OMAP1610 application processor runs Symbian OS for the new Samsung smartphones and powers a full range of features and applications, including a 1.3 megapixel camera with zoom, built-in flash, and camcorder functionality; MP3 Player; and Series 60 applications such as e-mail and synchronization via Bluetooth or SyncML. TI's power-efficient BRF6150 Bluetooth single-chip solution, which is based on TI's DRPTM process technology, seamlessly interfaces to the OMAP platform and provides voice and data connectivity to the new Samsung smartphones.
Samsung's new clamshell handset, the SGH-D730, soon to be followed by the slider version, the SGH-D720, is available in Germany, will roll-out throughout Europe later this year.
