I don't think this phone is bad. I like it and I think i'll get it. I've seen this phone myself and it doesn't look cheap at all, the person who took these pictures made it look like that. I mean look at this image, it looks a lot different to the other pics
To all those who are saying that this phone is a "ripoff" of a Blackberry or a Nokia E series phone, please keep in mind that no one company has the copyright to the smartphone qwerty keyboard. Just because a phone was designed with one does not mean it copied another. By your logic, all smartphones with qwerty keyboards are copycats of the Palm Treo. Also, you say it is a cheap knockoff of an E71, but in reality it is not; that's why you think it is a cheap knockoff, because you are trying to posit that it is copying something that it, in fact, is not. Samsung is not a new or startup company and does not need to copy from anyone. They are also experienced manufacturers of smartphones, and you will know this if you take a peek at smartphone history in general. If you like your Blackberry or Nokia E series phone, that's all good. Just do not claim that these models to which you so feverishly cling are the forerunners of anything related to smartphone innovation. Try doing a search on different smartphones and the year they were released, then maybe you will stop this "copycat" outburst.
some samsung detractors say that the samsung b7330 is like a copy of the blackberry phones and the nokia e71 and e72 phones, while others say that this is the worst looking phone they have seen. ergo, the blackberry and nokia phones are also the worst looking phones out there. lol. so what's wrong if samsung copy the blackberry and nokia form factor and come out with a phone with better specs and at a lower price? at least smasung owners get what they pay for unlike buyers of blackberry and nokia phones who pay a higher price for phones that should have been sold at half their prices.
this is the screen on the i780 which is almost a 2 yr old model. blackberry has upped resolution to 480x360. 320x320 sounds very outdated. not impressed!
it's realy surprising to lunch this model , i'm fonding of SamSung brand , but i was want to find lik E72 -71 , and finally i get my wish

Wow, another Nokia E71 and Blackberry wanna be from Samsung. No wonder Samsung is having high sales cuz it keeps on copying the competition.
Samsung, stop wasting time on all these B73xx phones and give us the B7610 already.

neos, 20 Aug 2009ahhhhh fugly phones like this really make me appreciate the fact that my e71 is a piece of art... moreE71? This oldfashioned grey stupid phone? Whith Symbian? My granny has one... You must be proud that you have the E71!!! xaxaxaxaxaxaxa..... B7330 and B7320 is far better from all same type Nokia... Samsung has better style, better features(cpu for example) and better OS...
