i guess in the near future GSMArena could now conduct a camera test from the four 5Mp camphones.
according to: http://news.softpedia.com/news/No-Samsung-F700-for-the-US-Phone-Users-55990.shtml it will not be available in US!
??Concept phone?? If this is a concept phone, then this should doesn't have an availability date! IMHO, this phone will go head to head with N95. Great phone!
I saw this phone in the internet and it was awesome!!!!!But before I buy this phone, I want to ask, can we change the message tone with another music we want, because my last samsung phone, I can't change my message tone with another music except 10 short musics that already set by samsung.....Please answer my question......!!!
for ppl who r complaining about the lack of wifi, here's something that may offer you a lil hope: this phone was only a prototype when it was introduced during 3GSM in Feb - it couldn't even be turned on, not to mention about the full list of possible functions it may have. Personally I highly favor this phone and it may just have the stuff to compete (or even OUTcompete) N95.
To Carlos: the exciting thing about WiFi is that it's FREE. To Rhea: the reason why Samsung did not include WiFi or GPS is that Samsung is STINGY and does not understand the market.
i like this phone for my husband but their's no wifi...c'mon how come this beautiful phone's no wifi this is an important....
@Dick S. White
Here is my healthy advice. I've lost money through Western Union while buying D720 when its not even been out. I strongly think F700 is far away from coming to the store. So please have patience. It cant be that cheap.
no wifi???.....c'mmon samsung u r laggin behand the leaders.that aside it's a beatiful phone...
Chucky D, you say the company is reputable, yet the person you are dealing with has been having computer problems for the past YEAR?!! These guys don't accept paypal and don't even have a half-decent website, for Pete's sake. Not only that, but the F700 isn't available anywhere in the world and they have it on sale for $340?!!! Don't get me wrong, I would love it if they're legit, but they seem very very fishy, if you ask me.
Hilarious post Chucky D, it looks like Peacestore is one to avoid. Mmmm....Samsung F700....it seems that this company is just too STINGY. It is obviously a high-end multimedia device therefore WLAN is compulsory. I will just have to look elsewhere eg Nokia E90 or I-mate 7150. I must admit the design is great!
No, not at all. This company is highly reputable-I bought an N70 when they came out through PEACESTORE at a bargain price. Unfortunately the royal mail lost it. The nice man at PS said he would sort out another one for me, but I think he is having trouble with his computer or telephone as I haven't been able to get through to him for the last year or so. I can't wait for my N70 to arrive!
I'm in the USA, but recently made contact with a company in the UK called PEACESTORE. The guy says the phones are made in Finland, and he has them ready to ship. The weird thing is, they only use moneygram or western union. There is no paypal option. He gave me an address which I google mapped. Does this sound like a scam?
Because Wi-fi is for free, and HSDPA via operator which gonna cost you arm and a leg ;))
Thanks for the info, Just to add a few, Samsung is actually promoting i600 as "Ultra Masseging" not F700.
The OS is Samsung OS, Flash based interface, derived mostly from windows mobile. It's not exactly a smart phone but it incorporates most of the sramt phone features.
And those complaining about WiFi, its equipped with 7.2 mbps HSDPA which is highest speed at this moment. How come no one is talking about that I wonder.!!
To those guys, the OS is a Samsung OS so it will probably be much better than any winmo they put on there when it comes to utilizing graphics and functions.
To others, this is called the "Ultra Messaging" phone, which is part of Samsung's Ultra line-up. It doesn't need Wifi, it doesn't need GPS, and it doesn't need a radio to be a messaging device. It's not a smartphone, and it doesn't need anything like wifi, radio, or gps to drain battery life.
Man, some of you guys want too much outta this phone, just take it for what it is. Don't complain about the features it's missing, ya know since it's your choice to buy it or not. Complain when you are the owner of it instead.
BTW, the phone is on pre-order right now. The cheapest place is Negri, my pre-order amount was a little less than $700 at their site.
