Wow thats my dream phone~! long live Samsung~! Can't wait for this phone out to replace my D410...
hello i love this phone d720 so much
i know the mb share memory will be a super one i cant wait for this poduct to be available great phone.
does anyone now when this phone is comming to norway or europe????? should i buy this phone or nokia 6230i???
Samsung is planning to reach 1GB capacity on MMCm b4 end of year.But i am almost sure that they will be VERY expansive.Btw mass production of MMCm up to 256 Mb is already started.I am still interested in this phone bcos a symbian device with 64Mb of ram will b able to run EVERYTHING and very fastly,and the stereo mp3 player with dual loudspeakers sounds very nice to me.If only it has radio & SD slot this phone was going to be the killa of the scene.
it was wishful thinking on my part. i would have bought this phone if it had a 512mb or 1gb memory card. microMMC=128mb max is a sad, sad joke!
now that the D720 is out of the running, time to decide between the SE K750 or Nokia 6681... they too have weird memory cards but at least they're larger.
I don't think that the actual s60 devices really need this rush to rising up the data transfer speed considering the poor specifics of most s60 phones.Actual standards are more than adequate.Phone companies need SMALLER memory storage cards because the trend is 'we pack a bunch of features while we reduce phone size',not bcos of data speed.They only need to convey on what kind of storage support in the future.All the brands together.But dis will remain a chimera.OH...And sgh-d720 will come with an humble 32Mb MMCm.Sad.
I known that the photo comes from a pre-sale model of the D720,so the looks may change a bit,but as i stated b4 the info sheet was definitive.Samsung will adopt his own-developed MMCmicro for his phone line-up.So we're all forced to fork out more ca$h.
i guess it's micro mmc. too bad then :(
there still seems to be too much conflicting info all over the web. i wish samsung had a website for their new phones - with release dates too! how can we trust a company that is this secretive.
It looks like it will be micro mmc after all fone dude. Read a detailed preview at infosyncworld about a working prototype model at cebit. I'm becoming a bit concerned though at changes that Samsung are going to be making to the Series 60 software.
the link posted is to the prototype phone (when it was initially announced) and the specs have changed since then. notice the speaker is silver and not orange. also this photo is a larger version at ~25mm thick and the final phone is 22mm thick. neither of us can be completely sure what type of memory card will be used. this is not a personal attack, i just don't want to give people wrong information. :)
Just like in the world of PC's, standards change and technology improves. The transfer rate with mmc/rsmmc is becoming too slow so the manufacturers are having to adopt new and faster memory devices. I know it must be annoying but that's the way it has to be unfortunately.
I read somewhere that a 256MB card will be included in the retail package. Can anyone confirm this?
As for the Series 60 software, I'd say that a very high percentage of existing apps will work fine. All the major software writers will be quick to fix any compatibility issues.
Any news on whether the phone will be running Symbian 7.0s or Symbian 8.0?
So,again i'll have to trash my beloved 512Mb RSMMC and transfer all the data.This is going to be a curse for both my finances and patience.Why don't they all stupid phone makers adopt a single standard?Even one brand uses 3/4 kind of memory storage for it's phone lineup...that's crazyness!Also i read that sgh-d720 has some 'special' custom features in his symbian OS that probably will make 80-90% of the software already out incompatible.We'll see.
@Fone Dude & Neophyte:
Here's the official & definitive data sheet for D720 at Samsung's CeBit2005 Stand.As you can see MMCmicro is CLEARLY specified as supported memory standard.Check out..
Exactly what I thought fone dude.
Still no news on a release date for Europe? Found out that in some countries the phone will be EDGE enabled and in some cases be 3G (WCDMA). No idea what countries will get which configuration. I really hope it'll be 3G enabled for the UK market. Obviously it won't be capable of video calling but there's not much point in video calling anyway.
As a warning to people, several auctions on eBay claim to be selling this phone. Do not be tempted to bid as this phone does not exist yet and they are obviously trying to con people. This site will be one of the first places that will tell you about this phone being released.
where are you reading MICRO mmc?
every spec for D720 says regular MMC which comes in 128, 512 MB, 1 GB.
OMFG!This phone is using a new proprietary MMCmicro!When this is going to stop?Every new phone uses a different mem exp standard,so i have to buy a new mc and transfer all the data everytime!Plus,MMCmicro currently are VERY short on availability,small in Mb size (the larger is 256 Mb)and very pricey.Shame on you Samsung for not using traditional SD/MMC!!:-(
"Handsfree speaker" is in the specs on some other sites. google 'D720 handsfree speaker'.
