I'm hoping that when released there will be a miniSD slot, seriously you need memory to store all your photos and the option of being able to listen to mp3s will definitely attract more consumers to purchase this mobile phone. If it indeed has miniSD, then Panasonic has made a very all rounded phone. I'm hoping as well that the firmware won't experience as many problems as the recent batch of released mobile phones.
I don't understand Panasonic makes phones for Japanese company NTT DoCoMo that are so much more capable and well featured than their mobile phones released to the rest of the world. 16M display is very appealing however the package doesn't seem complete without external memory storage support.
I own Panasonic X70 now.
Keep the price low? Heh... Low price and Panasonic? Never. VS7 will b over 500usd when reelased for sure. For what? In what respect (except the screen quality) is it better than SE K750? 200 bux for screen, design and Panasonic logo. And loss of memory cards, radio and Sony logo respectively.
Why does a cell need memory cards? 2 mpix photo takes up about 1 mb. 1 minute of mp3 takes up 1 mb so 10 melodies and 20 pics = phone is out of memory. Just stupid... Sorry.
VS7, MX7, SA7 series has Bluetooth and infrared. It will be soon released, maybe Sept '05. Actually im using it right now. Currently on trial stage & under reliability stage to ensure quality here in PH. That's one factor Panasonic is one of the leader company in the world because of it's quality. Ask your friends if they have the GD series phone (like GD92)Ask them how durable it is.I can assure you its very tough. I already throw that phone intentionally in a woooden wall & drop it several times but still working up to now.
Yes, it has a biggest display and not only that, you can use the whole 2.5 inch display for your wallpaper. 16 million color is the same with true color of your computer so display is very very good.
Unfortunately the phone has no memory card. In my opinion, adding up an SD card means additional on its price. If i want to use the MP3 feature of the phone, I rather buy a mini mp3 flashdisk type player that coz around 3000 PHP. Much better quality on all branded phoes with MP3 features. Other user want a complete package on the phone ( video, 1.3 up camera, games, MP3, SD & etc) but they dont want to supper to much on the price.... Ha ha ha...... nothing is cheap. You can get all of this feature in cheaper price but not good quality. It has a memory size enough for your pictures,video and other application.
This phone focus more on its camera & display.
One thing more, on this phone you can customize the logo of the menu. You can chnge it with your photo or celebrety pic if you want.( Its very cool).
The design of the keypad is also the trend in japan right now(keypad is japanese design).... easily can grip and the key are not too close to each other so very easy to use.
It has no bluetooth. No memory cards, no IRDA and no bluetooth. I refused to believe it but now i got a hard evidence from Panasonic themselves:
(page is in russian)
Here goes a translation:
"VS7 model has a biggest (2,5 inch) display among all the clamshell-design phones. SA7 is done in a sporty style with doubled battery capacity and MX7 additionally has bluetooth".
So only MX7 has bluetooth, but in europe they will only launch VS3 in 'early autumn', VS7 and SA6 somewhat later and the rest of the series... They dont mention. Probably never? Because on russian website they first made an announcement of all the series (VS, SA and MX 3, 6 and 7) with a page dedicated to each model. But later on they removed everything except VS3, SA6 and VS7.
So most likely Panasonic will only release 'empty' versions that hav nothing worth notice but a camera and a screen.
not to flame, but do any of you people speak english? its difficult and frustrating to read through these comments. my brain now hurts and my iq has dropped about 25 points.
the phone looks freakin sweet though!
Does anyone know where this panasonic vs7 phone can be found in the United States? Please let me know. Looks very classy and powerful
With TV analog pal receiver and fm radio tuner it should be complete!
Does anyone know some cell it has tv PAL receiver and fm radio tuner in american market?
NEC N940 and other cells in Japan market are NTSC receiver and don't work in countries that receive PAL signal.
I heard that Pana VS7 n VS3 hasn't slot card. Is that true?
ive been looking all over the london and asking around for this phone and other types of 16 million colers phones i'm just confused in till i find out thay dont do it in the uk noooooooooooooooooo
Panasonic VS7 has bluetooth. I love this smartphone. It has 2.5 inches main lcd(diagonal).I can't wait to see how this phone can display 16 million colors.It also has infrared like VS3.it also has color sub lcd which you can change.also,menu icons can also be customize.(images from my files).It has photolight to make pictures clearer even on dark areas.
I'm waiting for this stuff.Now i have GD87 and i think the Panasonic is a class producer of mobile phones.Where will be at EU ?
Amazing phone, I'm hoping to get it in Japan in a few months..
To answer someone about the "flash", you should really look closer, because (atleast for the VS7) you can clearly see a flash beneath the camera.
panasonic is always a company who noe how to ply safe instead of being more aggresive to push more new concept n ideas of design.. while they been success for their last flip fone n they keep coming out the same designs.. but abit of diff specs..not worth compare.. just buy panasonic fone wid medium specs n cheaper wan LOL
HMMMMM, very interesting:
How come VS, MX and SA series of Panasonic phones don't have a flash? What is the purpous of having 1.3 or 2.0 MP Camera phone if it does not have a flash?
-Is the flash simply missing in the
SA, MX and VS series phone descriptions?
-Or do these Panasonic phones have a new type of technology that offers a night mode that replaces the flash?
-Worse of all, could it be simply a gimmick by Panasonic?
DOES ANYONE HAS ANSWERS for my questions?
VS 7 has Bluetooth, but not IR.
Got even answer from the german Panasonic,
that VS 7 will be launched in august. Unfortunately no comment about the price.
It's a moot point whether the models MX 7 and
SA 7 will release on the European market,
maybe only in Asia.
