I am bit confused, weather to call it tab or smartphone?
Particularly, it lies between these two!
However, I would like to carry tab instead of carrying this large size phone!
I would have to buy an extra jeans with large size pocket!
Its to small to carry in hand and may feel odd and too large to carry in my pocket!
Also, PRICE!!! ARe REALLY! HIgH!!

( since you bought oversea, I want to buy one from oversea too), have you experience any problem with this phone when you use in US?
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2011Import?Must confess, I'm lucky in that I travel a lot, so I get to try before I buy and purchase products often months before they might make their way to the U.S.
Not everyone is so lucky of course, but I'm a charitable guy, so, sometimes I'm generous and bring a gift for my family or friends.....
I know a few people who import, but that has it's own inherent risks of course (getting what you actually want and the risk of paying duty).

Just for your information, you might be interested to know that in Asia, almost everyone has an unrestricted handset. Operator outlets exist of course, but they don't have the mafia-like influence like in certain western countries.
Also, you would be speechless at the spares and extras over the counter by most manufacturers! Can you imagine entire floors of a large mall being occupied by mobile sales, repair & spares?
Pretty much anything is repairable, whereas in the 'west' we are usually forced to buy a new phone. It is both a lie and disgrace. Just pure greed!
Some on this thread will know exactly what I'm talking about....we are the lucky ones!

If you were to buy an European unlocked version of Samsung galaxy s II and throw in tmo or at&t sim cards in it. . Sure it works to make phone calls and messaging, but the 4g data would only work on at&t due the phone frequencies. . So with tmo sim the phone will only run on edge or 2g speed. . Why do that when you pay for full price of data plan. . So you have been dumb for a long while
