Got mine last week from cti-miami.com better than the Q but not perfect. Wish it had wifi.
Does ANYONE know if you can use this phone to share a GPRS internet connection with your laptop or not? Thanks for any tips.
416 Mhz Intel processor in this small size !?
There is EDGE for browsing and data transfer.
Well, great business solution in great size: QWERTY keyboard, Camera, OS...
Only ergonomic of Samsung phones is the bad thing...
I got mine today from www.omnicelusa.com
I recvd my phone next day great price too.
As far as cti, they seem to be one of the cheapest right now...good or bad-unk.
I see it is available on CTI Miami. Did anyone buy from these people.
@Ax, Err... NOPE you can't fit a WiFi SD card to the I320. Firstly it only takes *MicroSD* cards.. and secondly they are fitted *inside* the phone's battery compartment (there is no externally accessible card expansion slot on the I320.)
So there you go. Pays to do your homework before posting eh?
I am raveling in Europe and had a chance to stop-in at a store in Paris to check this phone out...the piece is an abslute beauty and the perfect size for a combination phone/PDA...much better than the Q, the Nokia E61/62 or the Treo...however, lack of standard headphone jacks, wi-fi, and the fact that it costs a whopping $650 (unlocked) makes me pause at the moment, otherwise I had been eying to buy this phone as soon as it came out.
So far I liked samsung phones..but i dont know whats the point of releasing a smart phone for busness people without Quadband and WiFi. I know there is EDGE..but where is the HTML browser???..If Samsung is really serious about it..then they can easily give hard time to anyone be it NOKIA or MOTO or anyone..with this model by incorporating those features....no other brands has a slim and such a light model like this. It just lacks few things.Whats wrong in putting them together?
I'll jump over it if they care to put in wifi & quad freq. Even in the expense of taking out the camera for the sake of keeping the weight under 100gr.
Not much too point in WM5 with no WiFi and no 3G. Edge network not available in UK.
Won't run Skype (Skype don't work over 3G let alone 2.5G).
Browse internets over GPRS? Good luck with the speed and cost of that!
Seems a bit pointless.
Oh well. Next please!
actually, one of the reasons I am getting it is beacuse of the SD card so that I can combine my MP3, phone and PDA functionality all into one!!! is there an adapter for the propriatary headphone jack to the standard jack?
There you go..now you want a 3.5mm jact too. Ask yourself, does this look like a music phone to you!
Get an adapter and use your ear-plugs if you are so desparate.
I was about to buy this phone and just realized the headphone connection is non-standard!!! Why??? I can't use the included headphones I use the newer ear plugs for my mp3 player)...any suggestions?
It looks great - but run a google for "HTC Excalibur" before you buy anything wwoooof ! its hot .
Samsung has released a i320 variant called i320n in Europe. Other than the slight change in appearance, there seems to be no difference in specs except for the following:
i320: GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz
i320n: GSM 800/1800/1900 MHz
Also, no wifi !! :(
Beats me why Samsung would shoot themselves in the foot by having a micro SD slot instead of a SD or mini SD. We can find mini SD wifi cards.
Does anyone know if there's anything such as a micro SD wifi card?? Arrghhh
Too bad no wi-fi so no free browsing from Starbucks, hotel or workplace. otherwise it has perfect form factor.
