This site lists this phone as avaliable but i can't find it anywhere. every site that i've found that lists it actually sells the blackjack instead, which lacks wifi, rss news reader, podcast reader, and voice control and dialing. it don't see any reason to switch from my i320n to the blackjack since they are nearly identical phones except for bluetooth 2.0 and an externally accessible memory card. does anyone know where you can buy the unbranded and real samsung i600 and not the neutered and impotent blackjack?
I use this phone for "blackberry" function only. And it works great. For call purpose, i use d900. Like both phones and have no plan to change them for the next 3 years.
One more thing. Does anyone know what the talk time of the i-mate Ultimate 9150 is compared to the I600? The I600 claims 6.5 hours talk time, this is unclear for the i-mate. Its so fully loaded, its hard to imagine good talk time. These are both in my consideration set. Any views?
I am just about to get rid of the very disappointing Nokia E70 (slow and serious bugs that cause it hang and crash very often). I am seriously considering the I600. Does anyone know how well it interfaces with Microsoft exchange (as push mail)? In other words, will I be able to synchronize with our office microsoft exchange?
I've personally have used this model. It's screen reso is as clear as crystal. Camera clarity is very fine despite of 1.3MP only if im not mistaken. The processor is pretty fast. The battery life is good for 2 days inspite of non stop sending sms and calling. Aside from that, the generous samsung gives an extra battery. Almost every features it has, but it lacks one thing only -- touchscreen, but no need anyhow, buttons are users friendly. Ill rate this 5 stars.
USB 1.1???? why not 2.0? i'll never understand phone companies. If your gonna release a phone that does everything then let it do just that "everything". I still might get one of these =)
is the screen resolution good??? since its only 65k colors... how much worse than a 256k is it????
I was going to get this but they took so long to roll it out (it is still not out here in Asia) and (since it is only tri-band +WM5) I might as well just wait one more month and get the quad band moto Q9 with WM6
no the phone does not come with the stylus its not a touch screen phone it has a button to scroll around like the blackberry pearl
Check out the Blackjack forum, www.myblackjackphone.com. Its a decent resource if you have the phone.
To the guy above, the Blackjack here in america is known as the I607. Granted it doesn't have the secondary camera for video conferencing but it comes with 3G/ UMTS/ HSDPA. Which I find strange as Cingular is offering the Blackjack for 300 with a new contract and yet european websites are offering the i600 for $900-$1100!!
when is this coming to USA? I'm not 100% sure the 2 websites advertised here carry this EXACT phone.
was excited to buy this phone but with the new range of nokia and imate phones sorry samsung this phone suddenly is not that attractive. you guys just took too long a time to launch it.
to the confused person
BlackJack is Samsung i320 not i600.
Blackjack doesnt have Wifi.There is no front cam either cos,its not 3G.
