Samsung Electronics has introduced a CDMA 2000 1X EV-DO handset featuring an optical joystick. The 'Optical Joystick Phone', the SCH-V960, features a joystick which can be used with one finger allowing users to move a cursor to navigate the menu system. Users can also point and click on icons on the MyScreen interface and use the joystick to scroll through listings, such as a music play list. The V960 further features a 'Smart Lighting' feature which automatically controls the brightness of the LCD screen and keypad. The handset further comes with a 2 megapixel camera, GPS, Bluetooth, and microSD external memory support. The V960 will be launched in the Korean market at the end of December.
