I'm the proud owner of a Samsung D500. I'm satisfied with the phone's memory camera and other options and i think that the new samsung D600 will be almoast twice as good as the D500 wich was proclaimed the best phone of the year 2005. I hope that the new D600 will havemore options than the D500 and that the people from Samsung straighten out the card slot the mp3 player's rewind ability and a better way for the owner to view movies for example an option similar to the Full Screen option of the Nokia 6630. If theese minor setbacks are dealt with, then in my opinion the new D600 should be proclaimed the world's best phone for the year 2006.
Yeah as the guy said below, i really hope this phone gets out ATLEAST at mid august. Don't you kinda think that this phone looks just like the D630? Check it out on the samsung screen on this website below the D500. Its just a minor difference. I DOUBT that this is gonna be one of dem cheap phones...
I hope they release the D600 before mid August in US.
Waiting so long...
i found out today that in the link (UK only) the Samsung D600 will be out in early to mid september
Guess you don't go to bars with a camera and a phone in your pocket. One too many things to shake in your pockets.
If you want a camera why not buy a camera? Lond awaited, over rated rubbish! We say long live the ericsson 628!
Anyway this phone has MPEG codec which can play video clips not only in MPG-4 format. Of course, it doesn't support DiVX or AVI but still, MPEG player? That's mighty tempting...
France Telecom offers glasses to view films on mobile phones
In reply to sceptics who think cell phone screens are too small to watch a movie, France Telecom's R&D department have come up with a pair of Micro Optical glasses, developped with Essilor International, a leading maker of ophthalmic optical products and supplies, particularly corrective lenses.
Hooked up to Samsung's SGH-D600 handset, Orange Wireless subscribers will be able to view films selected from Orange's film catalogue through their glasses. Launch date is scheduled for October 2005.
I really want this phone its seems so cool, what is the release date, does anybody know plz ?. Lets hope its as good as made out. P.s i thought it was 3 mega pixel camera not 2, xxxxxxxx
What do you guys think about the D600 vs Siemens SL75? Pro/Cons? I noticed there is no instant messaging for the D600, that kinda sucks...
Why do you say they are "kickass"? They don't look that spectacular for new phones from Asia. Maybe next to a Nokia, or Ericsson, or "Hello Moto" they look cool...
yo!!! check out some kickass phones from LG
By the way, anyone with a GSM phone interested in changing their voice quality/battery life can use Enhanced Full Rate (EFR) for better quality, or Half Full Rate (HFR) for better battery life.
Depends entirely on the implementation. Higher bit rates (from higher bandwidth or spread spectrum) can result in better quality. Not all CDMA networks operate the same.
Under normal circumstances GSM uses between 4.8k - 9.6k for voice (depending on the compression used), indicating quite low quality. 16k or 24k would sound a lot better... but then much lower battery life and double the airtime cost.
I don't know about the service, but Korea has way better phones than Japan.
And I heard that CDMA has better sound quality than GSM.
One guy in Russia has a prototype and suddenly people say it's ben released there?
Again we have people saying it's released in Korea, where there is no GSM service. Need I say geeeez again... Why Samsung would launch a phone in a country with no GSM network is beyond me! It's like launching a new aircraft in a country with no airports.
Not sure the exact names for it but Korea uses some proprietary system based on CDMA (Japan does a similar job). That's why they have had 2.5G / 3G type services for many many years already (and 7 megapixel phones etc) and needless to say it is far superior to GSM in many ways. Japan probably has the best mobile services in the world, thanks largely to Docomo (with the old iMode etc), Korea is not bad, followed by GSM for most of the world, followed by the junk that's available in the states (yes I know more people are using GSM these days but many still don't even know what an SMS is).
D510? Don't even bother. The screen is crap like the D500.
