HDSPA stands for High Speed Downlink Packet Access and is a data service using packets and a feature of the WCDMA standard, which provides data transmissions up to 8-10Mbps (mega-bits per second). Pretty fast!

On August 2, Samsung launched the SGH-Z560, the world’s first HSDPA phone, at 3GSM 2006 World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. In France and Italy, it will be the SGH-ZV50. The SGH-Z560 supports 1.8Mbps data transmissions, EDGE (Enhanced Data-rate for GSM Evolution) and sports a slim 16mm thickness. It has a 2 megapixel camera with auto-focus. 30MB of internal memory (not a lot) is included with a microSD memory slot.

The main display is a 2.3″ TFT LCD with 240 x 320 resolution and can display 262 thousand colors. The sub-display is a 1.07″ TFT LCD with a resolution of 96 x 96. Video can be recorded in MPEG4, H.263 (not H.264) and Real. Bluetooth is included as well.
