I think that this phone will not be sucessful in the market due to 2 reasons
1 It has only 1000 phonebook entries: in today's time when there is an option of unlimited entries why anyone will go for 1000 restruicted entries?
2 This phone has a weak battrey: As all samsung phone(except guru range) has battrey problem so will this one have as this battry is half of e 71 or e 65.
Finally people can buy cemra but in the phone the see features but they do not compromise on battry due to this .
I think this phone will be a big time flop except it's cemra
Arak, 20 Jun 2009you can shut off the sound in se too. if your mobile broke in 1 fall then samsung failed the ... moreThe phone didn't break as such, just got some noticeable dints/damage on the casing and camera mode toggle switch, but has annoyed me enough to want to compliment the existing phone I have. I want a better cameraphone with Xenon flash, so it's looking like its between this and Satio, although i'm leaning more towards this because of the slightly better video recording. I have no use for the advantages S60 brings. The only problem as you correctly point out is the lack of a conventional keypad. I loathe touchscreen, but I want something relatively soon, so might make the sacrifice and see how it goes... I just want some info on the official release date and pricing already. Hurry up Samsung!
FoneeConsuma, 20 Jun 2009I recently bought an i8510. Was quite satisfied with it, but dropped it recently on cement. No... moreyou can shut off the sound in se too.
if your mobile broke in 1 fall then samsung failed the stress and break test.
the isue is not smasung or se or nokia , i personally prefere hybrid mobiles to have both touch screen and a keypad , only touch screens is a risky bussiness
I recently bought an i8510. Was quite satisfied with it, but dropped it recently on cement. Now it is significantly damage and i'm quite pissed off about this. As soon as I read about this phone (Although displeaed at it being solely touch screen), I have considered getting this phone. One critical factor will make or break a purchase of this phone. Does anyone here know, like with the i8510, can you turn the shutter/camera sound off for taking photos and recording video? The reason I don't bother with Sony Ericson phones is because you usually can't which is very annoying. If the answer is 100% yes that the shutter sounds can be turned off for photos and recording video, then i'll seriously consider purchasing this phone...
For a better than nothing First look at the Pixon12, follow the link
maryjane, 17 Jun 2009is this camera better than the idou camera from sony ericsson?? Idou (Satio) will be running on an open platform and therefore the better option.

Even Qwerty is too much, if a phone is MOBILE I want to be able to do everything on it using one hand - and use the other hand to hold an umbrella, dog leash, bag, something to eat etc, etc, etc. I want to see a high-end bar phone with keys.
Were not gonna get this in June are we!!!??? We'd have a hands on by now. Whats going on?
all the cell phone companies need to stop with all this touch screen crap. all the high end phones are becoming touch screen. why cant they make a bar phone with these specs qwerty or t9 i dont care. i just like to have a little mechanical aspect to my phone.
'Pixon 12 -- which runs the same in-house Samsung OS as the Jet, but packs a 12 megapixel camera'
that info is from Engadget. Also they have loads of photos of all the new samsung phones and some really nice ones of the Pixon12 (which i think is the phone i'll be getting over the Jet) Click link for photos
Looking at this video on youtube, the phone looks gorgrous.....but no 3.5mm jack.
