Samsung launched two new satellite DMB phones, the SCH-B200 and SPH-B2000, with a unique slide and rotate form factor. The phones have a unique design which allows users to first slide, and then rotate the LCD screen 90-degrees for a landscape viewing orientation that is more ideal for watching broadcasted video content on the cell phone's LCD screen. The company claims this new landscape viewing mode is also more convenient for playing games, Satellite DMB programs, MP3 playing and vod features.

The B200 has a mini pedestal attached to the battery which allows the phone to stay upright during TV viewing. It is capable of multitasking and allows users to talk on the phone and send SMS while watching satellite DMB content.

The B200 is specially designed to reduce power consumption - ideal for continuous DMB viewing for up to three hours. It comes packed with the latest features, such as 2-megapixel camera, 256MB TransFlash external memory, TV output function, and wired and wireless mobile printing.
