http://asia.cnet.com/crave/... moreGreat! amoled screen, Wifi, 12 Mpx, Xenon and Led flash, touch auto focus...hope this time they will let you easily install applications. Too bad they forgot HD video, but i guess they want to sell Omnia HD too.
Pixon is already great, this one is even better.
Samsung Pixon will going to have a 12 mega pixel camera upgrade
KC, 31 May 2009Hi jj I use 3G to connect to the internet. The phone has its own internet browser which wor... morei can't make opera mini work on my pixon. it says file type not supported. its .jar though.
burt_robinson, 31 May 2009thanks alot. if i do that and i try to install the .jar or .jad file, will it work then?Yes it will work, just upload the jar file (jad not needed by wap) with the Pc and download with the phone. Java games 240x320 work ok, most of them being non touch screen games there will be small arrows at the lower part of the screen.
Games on my phone at the moment: http://www.savefile.com/files/2122311
jj of santolan, 31 May 2009your comment on the phone is confusing because as you said and as we all know there is no wifi... moreHi jj
I use 3G to connect to the internet. The phone has its own internet browser which works quite well. I haven't had any problems with it. I also downloaded opera mini (java, which the phone supports) and tried it out. It works fine, but Opera Mini hasn't been optimized very nicely for touch input, so I prefer the default samsung browser.
As for email, I've entered the gmail POP3 and SMTP settings into the phones email client, so I can open the email client from the phone and download my gmail messages to the phone. The interface looks almost like your sms inbox. However, you only receive emails when you choose to download them to your phone. Push email is not supported. If you have a data bundle added to your contract, its fine, but could be quite expensive if not.

KC, 29 May 2009Hi. Just my take on the phone... may be helpful to some. Have had the phone for a week now ... moreyour comment on the phone is confusing because as you said and as we all know there is no wifi but you also said that internet is ok and you can download your e-mail messages, how was it possible considerng their is no wifi connection and opera mini is a internet browser. Kindly enlighten us about this. thanks a lot.

Go to www.davidpye.com, upload the jar file to their server with your pc, and enter in your pixon the adress they will give you to download the file via wap. Easy and cheap, you just pay the wap charge.
(There is another way using hidden menu and codes in the phone with special software but quite difficult and not for the standard user because you can mess up the phone...)
I just had my pixon and I am having problems downloading java applications. Pixon always shows "FILE NOT SUPPORTED" both for .jad and .jar. help please!!!

Hi. Just my take on the phone... may be helpful to some.
Have had the phone for a week now and I'm really happy I chose it. Was considering much more expensive options, but glad i didn't. Camera is AWESOME! Can fault it there... video quality is superb. Only thing is photo quality in low light. I'm used to the perfect night shots of my old Sony Ericsson K800i. The Pixon disappoints in that regard. However, night shots are still better than most phones with an LED flash.
Battery life is another thing. 1st full charge lasted about 12 hours, but I played around with all the features quite a bit. 2nd charge 2 days, 3rd is 2 1/2 days and counting. So after optimizing the battery, I guess it should be ok for about 2-3 days of normal use. I make about an 30-45mins of voice calls a day, send 20 messages, use internet for about 30mins a day. Also the odd photo taken and still play around with the features a bit.
There's no wifi but that doesn't really affect me. Besides, I'm sure that'd REALLY kill the battery quickly! I was also sceptical about getting my first full touch screen, but I can gladly say that its probably even easier to use than a normal keypad (and I text alot!). No need for the annoying separate stylus, as finger input is so easy! Internet works like a charm even without downloading Opera mini. Omera mini need to become more touch friendly though. Document viewer works well and I've set up gmail to access through my inbox. Its quite easy and works well. Some emails don't download if "too large".
The widgets are quite cool and the side-bar is a great idea. For the price, I don't think you'll find anything better! I must say that I am happy with my purchase!
If you guys have any questions, leave a post directed to me and I'll try my best to help. Be prepared to wait up to 2-3 days for a reply as I don't check the comments every day.
Happy shopping and if you're undecided, choose the pixon. You really won't regret it!
good phone, nice design, good camre. not the best from samsung but in top 10 www.google.com
hey people out there.. does this phone has usb port? so it can connect to computer..
Bilou, 25 May 2009I think the video recording is very good. In low light the frame rate is obviously lower, but ... moreCan you please send me a video recording of moving objects. Thanks my email is - firstname.lastname@example.org
Very satisfied with M8800 pixon.
camera 8,0mpix is enough good to replace your old photocamera. Video is 720x480pix in dvd quality + divx, MP4, 3gp reproduction.
very good watching office documents like word, excel. pdf on 3,2inch huge display. Zooming, rotating, panning...ok
Phone size is very handy 107x55x13-15mm, 120g.
Battery life with internet surfing lasts 2days; without internet, only calls and messaging 3-4 days (Experience).
Install Java Opera Mini and really enjoy internet.
Photo browser is very good.
Phone is loud enough in earpiece , loudspeaker or spreakerphone. Ringing also loud enough. I have 5/7 or 6/7 ringtones without vibracall.
Profiles normal, vibra, silent, outdoor etc.
I have memory card microSD 4GB without problems.
Thios is multimedia phone+camera+office viewer+internet+email(downloadlimit is 5MB/E-mail...good enough, best samsung in no-smathphone class).
Important thing...very very simple to use, to type messaging ABC+QWERTZ+Handwriting with finger/nail (without stylus)+VERY IMPORTANT vibra feedback during typing, adjustable 1-7!!
Music recogniser is good also.
+ a lot of good applications (some are downloadable MORE WIDGETS) and functions (Video editor, drawing, Java games, google, gmail...)
Sunlight legibility, on the direct sunlight is bad :(
but indoor is perfect color vibrant 10+
