Samsung E700: Wha?

See, now this is weird. I just came back from South Korea and did not see this phone anywhere. Plus, it doesn’t look anything like the Samsung trade dress, with the gimpy lettering and bulk. I know the i600 is pretty beefy, but it looks nothing like this monster. Samsung is also pushing into WiMax, or, as they call it, WiBro, so this just looks weird.

It appears to run Windows Mobile and has WiFi, VOIP, and Windows Media. Maybe I’m crazy, but it looks like a pre-pre-mockup.
