Does anyone know the price of this phone for Greece (after taxes)?
Samsung must also make a cell phone with qwerty like Omnia Pro with Samsung OS and no Windows.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2009i wish they make the qwerty keyboard like from the samsung f700Really, the qwerty from F700 was excellent!!! I prefer F700 even fron i900 Omnia (I have both of them)...
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970If you live in US, anh you want to use the 3G network, then this cellphone will not work. Unless it has a North American version.
The Jet doesn't have a better browser. Opera Mobile compares just fine to Webkit-based browsers.
Nix, 17 Jul 2009Omnia Pro & S8300 Jet are so much similar but the price difference is abt. 150 euros. Omnia h... moreIt is not the same.Omnia Pro has OS WM6.1 which makes it smart phone. It has keyboard. Bigger Screen. Special button to switch between Business UI and Life UI (the same user interface found in jet and omnia 2) plus some features tailored for Pro only. Last, Pro is made for business
i hope they put dual stereo speakers like the n95 8gb and make it more stylish.
Omnia Pro & S8300 Jet are so much similar but the price difference is abt. 150 euros.
Omnia has a bigger display, a querty keypad and a better battery.
Jet has a better UI, better browser with flash player, fm recording, and more storage.
How is the price difference justified?
John, 17 Jul 2009Hey Nix,
are you 100% that it has indeed 256 MB of RAM?? Can you provide as the source you re... moreYes it's given in the specs and many other sites. You can search the web. Some websites show 135mb ram but it's not confirmed. I also read somewhere that the delay in its launch is due to some problems in the ram configurations.
And I think a TODAY SCREEN can be used in a windows mobile.

wish Sammy will do something with the matter...
may be the complaints will be heard, if a lot of people find it disappointing.
Nonetheless, I forgot to inform you that in Sammys SMS program, you have to type exactly the name of your contact if you want to send it. It does't offer what the default sms viewer does, that means when you start typing "Jo" to show you all your contacts starting with "Jo" such as John,Joanna etc...
Ths is really a BIG ISSUE...
It's WiMo, so you can disable or delete TouchWiz if you feel like it. Apparently the i8000 lacks threaded SMS, so it's almost certain the b7610 will be the same, but you could always use Microsoft's default SMS program instead of Samsung's one as it has that functionality. Setting it up so that you use TouchWiz for everything except SMS will likely be fiddly, but even that should be possible. Also, if enough people complain about the absense of it Samsung might add it in later like they did for the video recording on the i8910.
Nix, 17 Jul 2009Finally it is clear that it has got 256 mb ram.
With that it is almost the perfect mobile. Hey Nix,
are you 100% that it has indeed 256 MB of RAM?? Can you provide as the source you read that??I wish it's true...
In addition, do you know if I can remove the Touchwiz 2.0 interface and bring back home the standard TODAY SCREEN?I personally prefer SPB Pocket plus,as I have direct access to everything in a second.
Last but not least, you guys have to know that both Samsung omnia2 and Pro don't have threaded SMS...I don't know what Sammy did with the OS-she has gone really deep changing everything...but why?I found the classic sms viewer good enough...
However we have to admit that guys at Samsung are Smart enough. The whole background menu is black and that combined with the AMOLED screen makes it really energy efficient (Black areas don't use energy in AMOLED screens)
Finally it is clear that it has got 256 mb ram.
With that it is almost the perfect mobile.
i like this phone, i hope samsung philippines will release it here coz the f700 wasn't.
qwerty lovers go for b7610 cause it has everything 5mp stylus slot etc but touch screen lovers go for omnia 2 cool specs man!and camera lovers go for omnia hd thats wht i suggest
