Finally a full feature phone that is not as big as a PDA. I wish this had GPS, but on other notes it is perfect!
Any idea when this will be for sale?
For all those who bemoanded the lack of wifi on the F480, and read on this forum my suggestion that soon a revised model would come out offering wifi for you, GPS for me, well it's announced the i900 which has all the features we want in a brilliantly styled 490 lookalike.
Downside we have to wait until September. So don't buy the 480/490 save up since the i900 sure won't be cheap
You sound like I am Nokia Fan. I buy phoen that is nice, slim and with good features. I agree with you about Nokia phone even I owened many Nokia phone before like many others. If you always look fro good option phone so you are not stock with one MFG. Right now I have E51, HTC touch C. and IPHONE. Looking forward in seeing Sony G900 next month. Nokia has run out of idea or they waiting to surprise everyone soon. We do not see them coming with anything exciting sicne they announce the N95. I do not like N95 is to big I do owen the N82 which is a great phone but is too big too. That is why the Sony G900 is a good replacement.
well this phone is prety good, for those who want wi-fi maybe you don,t know that 3g is better than wi-fi. get yoselves laptops wi-fi lovers.
samsung go get a what?!
here's my experience from all my other phones. i've tried samsung, nokia, sony ericsson. samsung is a sturdy phone... try dropping in water. if you insist.... the samsung has a higher rate of actually working as long as you dont turn it on right away...
'Why anyone wants to look Samsung when only making a basic phone when Nokia was doing 10 years ago' - Hello! 5mp camera, 7.2mb G3 and it's touchscreen. Now go look at nokia's coming soon phones, the 5000, 7070, 2680 and the 1680, then come back and say sorry for you foolish comments!
F490 has qwerty and a different UI similar to the F700. F480 is more up to date more colourful check which you like best before you buy. Probably easy to get a deal on F490 as out of date already. Push hard, and ask for customer retentions or disconnections if you cannot get a deal be firm and you will get big money off.
The mobile phone is great. But one thing i don't inderstand. What's the reasons for Samsung Phones don't have Wi-fi??
Have you guys look at the Nice looking phone from Samsung F700 but no Wi-Fi?? I have visited Samsung Engineers in Korea and they have no direction in what t ooffer except try to come up with many phone in kind of different market. No time to see what they missing on their phones.
I do not understand you. You looking or phone can work for you or you looking for a phone is just a nice looking? Many phones are coming from LG, Samsung, and Sony nice looking but not have the functions customers need. Just look at Sony G900. It is fantastic nice looking phone and offer everything but with a poor Flash and no EDGE. This means if you travel area have no 3G then you have no fast Date rate to communicate. Like in Thailand and many other countries the 3G not avaialble but EDGe is. Plus 3G require alot of battery life.
omfg. i cant believe all you guys are saying bad stuff about it. I looks amazing, has an amazing camera and is touchscreen. if it doesnt have wifi then get a laptop. It isnt even expensive.
can someone tell me how good the touchscreen is on this ie does it experience faults after a while like some other handsets namely the prada fone?
Why need a Wi-Fi. If you live in Thailand like I do there is no 3G and then take the phone to USA the 3G on this phoen also not compatable with 3G USA 850. Now you know why?
Another Phoen from Samsung D780 jsut announced no 3G, EDGE or Wi-Fi. Why anyone wants to look Samsung when only making a basic phone when Nokia was doing 10 years ago. Samsung go get a life.
all i hear is no wifi whats the point if you have 3g its just as fast even faster and you dont need to worry about wireless internet..........
I thought Sprint was exclusively CDMA/EV-DO? Will SAMSUNG release a CDMA version then?
i saw an article about the price, says its gonna be around $200-300. I work for Sprint and we don't have any updates yet.. I'll let you know.. ^_^
here in usa we don't have the 3G so surfing the web is slow. wifi is only on certain spots and wherever there is wifi there is a computer or a laptop. i just hope f480 is not very expensive and it has a long battery life.
