Samsung's Mondi Mobile Phone Wins Best of 4G Award

An online publication for facilities-based service providers that deliver voice, data, wireless, IP, WiMAX and other content to subscribers recently awarded the Samsung Mondi mobile device with a “Best of 4G Award” in the Mobile Internet Device category. The award seeks to commemorate peak performers in the development, installation and service of cutting-edge communication offerings. A number of nominees were picked from the existing list of 4G technology, products and service providers by a team of 4G technical specialists.

The award for the Best Mobile Internet Device was presented to Samsung Mobile during a separate function held at the 4G World Conference and Expo in Chicago.

In a release, Eliot Weinman, conference chair and president of the events division at the Yankee Group said, “The innovation and effort that have been demonstrated by Samsung Mobile reflect the type of leadership that continues to drive opportunity and benefits throughout the emerging 4G industry. We extend our sincere congratulations to Samsung Mobile on behalf of the entire industry.”

The Samsung Mondi phone, with its solid black exterior, can fully utilize upload and download speeds that are almost twice as that of its competitors which are operating on 3G networks and also fully exploits the large scale accessibility of Mobile WiMAX.  The phone also has WiFi functionality and enables users to maintain robust wireless connections even when the user moves out of Mobile WiMAX segments. The device opens with a horizontal slide and comes with a complete QWERTY keyboard. The phone has a generous dose of multimedia capabilities allowing users to access email, Internet, video streaming and business applications. Many popular services like Fring, Gypsii and Windows Live Messenger, apart from several Windows Mobile Apps come fully loaded on the device. Route 66 allows the Mondi to deliver cutting edge GPS Navigation.

The Mondi phone has an all-encompassing design that allows subscribers with a more mobile and easy to navigate interface, as compared to a standard laptop or netbook. The 3.4 touchscreen enabled Mondi is beautifully propped up by an attractive Opera 9.5 powered Web browser.

The independent judging panel that picked the Mondi comprised such industry stalwarts as Berge Ayvazian, senior adviser and principal consultant for the Yankee Group, Adlane Fellah, CEO and promoter of Maravedis, Caroline Gabriel, research director for Rethink Research, and Phil Marshall, vice president of enabling technologies for the Yankee Group, among others.
