I like this model very much with the buttons under the 2nd LCD and the oval shape... But I agree if you say that samsung makes the most horrible phones at the moment, for example the new samsung smartphones like the P860/P850
i really think that Samsung has really getting off the track of good looking fones. i mean take a look at serene. and the thing is that now days NOKIA is producing even better looking fonez with more features. I'm sorry, but Samsung has left the battelfield, for quit a time.
do you really think that everybody's searching for a total-phone with all the useless stuff you mentioned (for a crazy price)?...this phone has all you may need in a phone (and even more). Simple.
No 256K colors, No Card Slot, No MP Camera, Old Design... Sincerely, a Crap phone.
Terrible mistake by Samsung.... What a useless phone this is... It is not a high spec phone, nor it is low end. It doesn't fit anywhere. Mp3 buttons indicate that it's an mp3 player, but with 40mb memory and no card slot makes the mp3 useless. Camera is horrific. The era has moved onto 2mp cameras....and yet this still has VGA. Not to mension disadvantages of being Triband, rather than Quad band (especially in USA)
This phone has most things that High spec phones have...with less quality. Hence, having these unneccessay functions that don't even work properly prevents the prices being cheap. Samsung wasn't thinking when the annouced this phone. My guess is that this phone will not reach mass production stage.
