Palm reveals new phone during Bluetooth testing

A new round of testing at the Bluetooth SIG, the body that oversees the development of Bluetooth standards and the licensing of Bluetooth, has revealed a new mobile phone from Palm and three from Samsung.


The details of the new Palm phone, which will join the Pre and forthcoming Pixi, are very sketchy. However, we do have a name - the Palm Ring P, a design based upon WebOS and, it's no surprise, featuring Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP and EDR. No other details are available at this time.


Three Samsung phones have also been spotted. The Samsung F839 is aimed at Eastern territories, features a WQVGA screen, a 3-megapixel camera and a full web browser. The Samsung C6112 reportedley resembles the C6620 and C6625 but, apart from its Bluetooth addition, no more is known about it. Finally, the Samsung E1390B is reserved for a European release. An entry-level candybar handset aimed at music fans, it features a 1.63in screen cramming in 128 x 128 pixels, dual speakers, music-specific keys and a microSD card slot. No more details were available.
