Looking to upgrade, can't decide between:
or Samsung D840
Here is my problem, I have all my contacts in my Adress Book on my MacBook. Nokia and SE are supported through iSync but Samsung are not - but I would much rather the D840... any other way to upload my contact data to the phone???
I just love everything about this phone, it will be the best ever, having said that, the thinness will take out its character...the D820 isnt that thin but it has this curve that make it the "FERI" (Ferrari). Also, what is with the keypad??? i thought they have proved it not so good with the D800? Otherwise it would be prefect! it is going to be my next phone in 2 years time (maybe)!
only black? I want ivory color or the other color cell phone.that is very thin but color is not my color.
hehe yeh In US we get the junks when it comes to cell phone. It will take another 5 years or so to catch up. I use GSM so that I can buy unlocked latest phones.
Most of the Samsung models does't have Ired. I assume they did their market-research as well and there has to be a reason.
actually live in Australia ;)
You're speaking for all of the US population...damn! I thought the US were the last to receive new technology, so Infrared should be way cool LOL
I'm SO joking! :)
The latest Nokia's, SE's, BenQ's and LG's still offer IrDA, so I let them do the market-research for me and say: it's still popular.
This goes for most of the GSM market I think, but then again the US is mainly CDMA so I don't know. But last time I checked your CDMA models weren't exactly "advanced".
If you are in Japan, then there is no point arguing. There are reasons for Japanese models to carry it. Here in US and most probably in many other countries we simply don't need it. USB and bluetooth are enough.
---and when I said MP3s i meant music files. I'm well aware of AAC+.
well, I use the 903SH which STILL has IrDA & Bluetooth, as most MODERN JAPANESE phones do.
Give me some credit, I use a CARD READER for transfering any file as Bluetooth is too slow. Though M2M is done via bluetooth of course. You're way behind if you still use MP3 - efficiency is called AAC+ v2. Talking about catching up with time...
IrDA still has it's place and it will be a disadvantage to SOME not having it.
Can you live with that?
I am currently on a IBM Thinkpad the T42 issued in 2005. It houses both bluetooth and of course Infrared. Infrared is implemented when bluetooth is either interrupted or when faster more private transmissions between devices are needed. When I had my S710 SE the bluetooth was still thinking when IR was transmitting
i have this phone cos i own samsung and its great. i reccomend evry1 to buy it
Which most modern phones carries Ired...you are talking about SE/NOKIA?, they kept it so that peps who are living in the past don't compain.
Its good to see Samsung not using it and the rest will follow.
Which laptops/computers has Infrared!!. I'm using them from 90s. Havent come accross with any.
Yes bluetooth is not yet common in computers and laptops, but there is a thing called USB for that. That makes life much easier to trasfer files.
I cant just imagine that you are using infarred to trasfer all those mp3s and videos to your phone.
i would like to know how much mermory it can handle? 1gig or 2gig or maybe more???
this is for Bliss:
you are correct it is such a shame it doesnt have infared. however you pe-narse it has bluetooth which is slightly more important and useful you toolbag. what do u want to do infared you trainspotting photos to your mates u brown eye!
this phone's great, id rank it 9.5 out of 10 its features r amazing...slimmer than the razr......great picture quality
I have seen the set (photo) it looks good. But I need some clarification bout its features. D820 is having a problem its keypad tone cant be turned off. Does this set also carries the same demerit? ? Does it has 128MB card along with the set? ? Can the camara be rotated like D820? ? And finally can anyone tell me what is the expected price in India and when is expected to come? ? ?
Anyone can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hey! The phone looks great!!! Im eagerly waiting for this. Can anyone tell me how much this will cost and what is video resolution of this phone. Is it as good as D600??
