Is this a Samsung phone or a camera?
The phone has a 7.9 cm AMOLED screen ( AMOLED stands for Active- Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diode) and Samsung claims it even has a 180- degree viewing angle, something that most phones don't. It also has a small, nifty feature that will delight those who are sick and tired of the speed at which phoneembedded cameras save images. Pixon12 can save and move to focusing for the next image within two seconds.
Ah, by the way, in case you are wondering how an AMOLED screen is more effective than a regular display, you would be delighted to know that the screen light does not affect the battery power much, thus helping you to listen to more music, click more pictures, watch two movies instead of one, and even do what mobile phones were originally supposed to do -- make and receive calls.
The Samsung Pixon12 is a prime example of how -- as we have been arguing for some time now in this column -- mobile phones or derivates of such gadgets could be the ultimate convergence device. We are yet to reach there, and it still might take a lot of time, but the form factor needed to make the allinclusive device would be that of the cell phone, and not the netbook.
