This is not a Quad band (850/900/1800/1900) device. I got one from Plemix, advertised as quad support, but sadly a European triband. I liked the form factor and device in general, but in the States on AT&T the loss of the 850 band makes this a less than desireable device. It still could get decent reception, but lacked the signal strength and 3G support I typically see with 3G/Quad devices I have.
Sigh.....guess the wait for a WM 6, slider is still going to be a long wait.....
the phone has no WLAN. next...
You would rarely see an ugly Samsung phone. It is safe to assume that as part of Samsung's philosophy, the design and appeal precedes, then adding the features follow.
Samsung is synonymous to diversity. Think of Motorola's recycling of design, but better.
In short, this phone is nothing but an attempt to add a variant among Samsung's line-up of windows mobile standard OS phones.
Your choice: Blackjack - dated but abled or i640 - fresh but less-abled (as far as wifi is concerned). Only sales will tell whether Samsung has accomplished a win-win deal.
Whats the deal with WLAN? Why does everyone need it so much? Not every place has WiFI. use a laptop man for wifi. Using Wifi on phone only saps battery and spoils eyes because of small display.
does anyone know if this phone is capable of browsing internet? im lost!!
I was just about to take off and go buy the phone! but ... No WLan!!!!!!! forget it... i wonder how they think in Samsung!!!
I sometimes wonder how many people here actually played with the phone they find fault with. This phone looks great! well done Samsung! I had a sam i320 and now have a i600. Bouth phones absolutely a dream to have. Yes, yes true, they not perfect. BUT I also had various HTC's and Imates. EXPERIANCE tells me its the best WinMobile available. (If you dont know how to work with windows mobile you'll obviously struggle)
the mbile should be thinner and samsung should give wlan to it...then the mobile has a good chance to get sold...
you can make no wi fi into 1???? please do explain as then i shall buy 1.. has any1 tried this???? thnx
I buy this model, but i don´t usere.
Can you give for me a manual.
hey guys get this! the samsung i640 has NO WI-FI right? but don't cry cause since this phone runs on WM6, you may be able to inject a WI-FI device in it! with what? well...with MICRO SDIO WIFI 11b\g card. check this site
why this keypad though? and why a slider? makes no sense to me, sliders are meant to be compact, and that keypad is the same one as on the i607, which i hated. so uncomfortable to type on. get going with something new samsung!!
It is already out!!
