This will be low budget mobile phone, thats why there is no GPS or 2 MPX camera
Am a field engineer and i think this phone will be compatible with my career, go on samsung :D
Melker63, 12 Apr 2009"Why do you need GPS on a phone to make it a true "adventure" phone?"
I have to agree. The ... moreI just feel Samsung missed out on a new market by leaving out GPS. The only phone that comes close is the SE C702. For people who love to go out adventuring like me, this phone isn't much use to them. As it is now, this is just another average nothing-special "tough" phone, and there are already lots like this.
It's also gotta be said there's no way the standby is 600 hours in this...25 days? No chance...the one I've tried doesn't last more than 3 with minimal use!

I have to agree. The idea of relying on an GPS-enabled mobile then slightly beyond civilized suroundings is ridicoules. Within 2 hours the fully loaded battery is drained. Mobile-GPS goobles up battery-juice like crazy.
As for the 1.2MP + video; well thats really more then enough for memory/explanation-help. Add to that voice-rec and notes. Add micro-SD, MP3 & radio, alarm, loudspeaker, bluetooth file- and vcard-sharing + more.
Im getting slightly tired of the current mobile-feature ratrace, and its obsessed concerns about possible scratces and fingerprints. The idea of jumping of the bandwagon at least 5+ years ahead, with a durable brute phone like the "2100 xplorer" seems more and more tempting to me.
this should bve nice . better to take it to outdoor
such as in hiking or trecking adv . then real talks begin
im sure that it is the best water resistant phone that is released yet.
Yes AT LEAST 2MP camera should have been included. Who has a 1.3MP these days. With GPS, and at least a 2MP camera this would be an AWESOME phone.
Now a Samsung version of what Nokia, Motorola, and a long time ago, Ericsson(not to be confused with the junk "Sony" Ericsson puts out. Hope T-Mobile USA picks it up and not AT&T.

My first mobile phone in 2002 was Ericsson R310s.I like'd this phone very much.This Samsung is the phone that is very similar to Ericsson.I'm interesting the price (in Euro) and the real battery life (how many days it works)?Please,somebody help!

Why do you need GPS on a phone to make it a true "adventure" phone? I mean, it“s got the perfect features like to be an outdoor phone, dust, shock and water resitant, even water proof up to 1 meter and 30 minutes! it“s supposed that, if you are into this kind of activities, you are gona have a TRUE GPS set, like a Garmin eTrex H series, wich is specially designed for this kinda activities, and is much more powerfull than any built-in GPS from any phone set. Besides, going outdoor and using your phone as a GPS you will only waste the phone“s battery in vain, and when the battery“s over, you won“t have neither the phone, neither the GPS. That“s why there“s no GPS.

Lance, 20 Mar 2009this a copy of nokia express phones..samsung sucks!!!You don't know what you're talking about man at all! It seems that you don't understand much about mobile phones. Nokia does not have any model that is fully antishock and that gives you the oportunity to throw the phone to the water and for more than 1 meter and 30 minutes long. Besides it has capability of memory card and a good screen. The battery may be not to good compairing to Nokia's Phones, but as a AntiShock Phone it is pretty Good. Go Learn and then you may talk.
