For all stupids who needs Wi-fi,Just try to understand its not smart phone. Samsung aimed it just for Fashion and its style. For a phone like this we should consider only the factor camera,mp3,performance and OS speed. Wi-fi is not a big deal. Then go for smart phone which will have only 2 MP camera and low audio quality.
yes i am ignorant and no nothing about phones so could someone please enlighten me as to how you type a message or dial or anything?
a friend of mine has an iphone and whenever he uses the wifi it always seems to be in places where I could bring my laptop except for maybe the basketball court. when he shows off the wifi at his or my house I just laugh because he spent so much extra money on soemthing that he already has (ibook)
so all this talk of the phone, but i wanna know its starting price range - please let it be not too high in price!
It is no different than what LG is doing with their latest touchscreen phones. No Wifi, GPS, and virtual keyboard. This phone doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack that even the F490 has. Even RiM is starting to consistently add a 3.5mm jack and GPS on their Blackberry phones.
i think that this is the slickest mobile i have ever see. who cares about the WiFi error!! SOOOOOOO thin. Great camera, etc... this is miles better than the crap LG did!!
Well, it's good phone,nice look, elegant and features almost perfect,not everyone needs the GPS, WiFi and QWERT in screen to make it the perfection in one set but this is the manufacturers policy which it's you can't get everything in one so play with it until we make you buy the next new one and for sure it won't be perfect as well.
i understand what you are saying, but depending on where you are and what you are doing, eg say you are a backpacker! and don't take ur lappy overseas, or do not want to carry your lappy at a restaurant (dinner) before hitting the strip where all the bars are. wouldn't the pda be convenient?
you guys out f your mind. Why you want a phoen this size PDA with no Wi-Fi??? you do not want wi-Fi means you do not know how use and ever had a phone had wi-Fi to know how nice it is. you can at home, mall, Airport ,ot office use your wi-fi free and check e-mail, do IM, look for news, or maybe access to places like youtube easy and fast. That is why IPHONE popular guys if you do not know. no Wi-Fi the phone is useless Samsung.
I agree. Wifi should not be a major feature for phones for I don't think it can ever replace a laptop. So for those people who complains & puts this phone down just because it does not have wifi, I don't think you guys don't really understand what features are more important and should really count on phones. If internet on the go is that important for you guys. Get a laptop.
I like this phone. I don't understand why some people make a big deal having wi-fi on their phones. Going online via phone is so inconvenient. If internet is that important for you guys, get a laptop. I think this phone is more for professionals who own laptops.
Wifi can be huge if you refuse to pay for data plans. I figure a company like Samsung or LG doesn't include them because of good relationships with carriers. Free wifi spots helps eliminates added revenue for carriers that also rely on data plan charges.
Seems like Samsung, LG, and even SE rarely puts Wifi on their 5MP cameraphones. HTC, Apple, and Nokia are more serious including Wifi. At least the new TouchWiz UI looks promising...
oh its a LG Viewty with a samsung badge. nothing new. nice shape. nice looks. but its a viewty in samsung clothing.
Where is the Wi-Fi on this phone Mr. Samsung???????? Why you make a phone with no Wi-Fi????
to buds, I consider myself a regular web browser. W/ that said, wifi is a must for me. Not on my phone, but my laptop =) If you're a heavy web browser and u need to browse the web even while you're walking down the street, and a laptop is too bulky for you to carry around while walking, then wifi is not for you either. Why? Because wifi is not readily available in all street corners, only at hotspots =) And this phone does have web browsing capabilities that you can access by subscribing internet through your mobile provider, which would probably be the best thing to do if you're a heavy web browser. But I bet you, a heavy web browser would only use their phone in a situation when it would be inconvenient for them to use their laptops (like when they're walking). But as soon as they reach a wifi cafe, guess what? They will pull that laptop out of the bag and put that phone in their pockets =)
