Samsung F500 phone supports DivX

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Gadgets and Cool Toys

The Samsung F500 “Ultra Video” is the “world’s first” handset with official DivX certification. The Samsung F500 (also know as the Samsung F500 Ultra Video or the SGH-F500) comes packed with tons of cool features for multimedia enthusiasts and will let you put all those DivX movies and TV shows onto your handset for portable handset viewing. Besides supporting DivX codec, the Samsung F500 also supports MPEG-4, H.264, WMV and AVI video formats. The Samsung F500 is the first phone to now support all the major video formats. The phone has a high resolution 2.4 inch screen that swivels to adjust the viewing angle (which also allows you to lay it on a flat surface and watch it without holding it in your hand). The F500 is dual faced with a screen and multimedia controls on one side, and a phone on the other. In addition it has a 2 Megapixel camera that even takes video. The phone comes with 400 megabytes of built in storage (way more than my Blackberry Pearl) and the F500 has a micro SD slot, allowing you to add an additional 2 gigs of storage space. As of right now the F500 is not going to be officially released in the US but I would look for it to show up on eBAY very soon! You can click here to try and Find the Samsung F500 on eBay!

Other features of the Samsung F500 are GSM/EDGE support on 900, 1800, and 1900MHz bands, and Bluetooth v1.2 w/ A2DP stereo headset. The F500 can play a variety of media files, including: MP3, AAC, AAC+, eAAC, and WMA audio. The F500 measures up at 116.4mm x 50.4mm x 10.7mm (4.6″ x 2.0″ x .4″).

There is also going to be a Samsung F510 that will support DVB-H TV and be identical in all other respects.
