Samsung Ultra Video Phone: F500 Plays DiVx

Samsung rolled out its Ultra phones, and here's the F500, the video specialist of the line that's the first cellphone that can play back DivX movies. On its 2.4-inch screen, it can handle all the usual suspects, too, such as MPEG-4, H.264, WMV and AVI, storing it all on 400MB of internal memory or up to 2GB on a microSD card. It's also packing a 2-megapixel camera.

What an innovative idea to make a swivel base that doubles as a stand, letting you set it on an airplane tray table and view it without having to hold it in your hands all the time. But what's with that big honking antenna? Seems like that could have been hidden away.
