WiBro is a technology far into the future for most countries, but in Korea this isn’t far off. Samsungs new SWT-W100K Portable Media Player uses this technology for internet access, along with having pretty much anything you could ask in a PMP.
The WiBro feature will provide internet speeds up to 13Mbps, and both VoIP and video chat is supported. The 4.3″ 800×480 touchscreen can be used for MP4, XviD, WMV, and H.264 video, photos or DMB (TV), which even supports picture in picture. The device also sports a 2 mega pixel camera, GPS, and USB host. It comes with 8GB of internal memory, priced at about $520. It’s doubtful this will ever hit the US.
