Laziale, 05 Jul 2009there is no Jet on category , just go to samsung S models , and you'll be fine . Won't the resolution difference be a hinderance when choosing any other s model at getjar, since they got low res screens?
Very good phone indeed. All functions r easy to use, very user friendly. I love it ...no regrets...
Filipe, 05 Jul 2009I own a Nokia E71 (Symbian) and use it mostly with Google Maps and Internet browsing - because... morebrowser is better than nokia's.
s8000 and s8003 are both same. just location (language) based commercialization models.

4th day since i had this great mobile .
- sound is loud and clear , ringing is loud .
- i tried the multi task , and it works great , opened 3 large application at the same time , No Prob .
- the touch screen is very nice , more responsive than old samsungs touch .
- web browsing fast ( facebook , youtube ).
- Camera 5MP works fine and easy and takes a very nice shots , i didn't transfer the videos to my PC to judge on it .
- music player and the headphone included is great .
- it only uses google map V2.3.2 Java , so there is no latitude and u can't upgrade to V3 ( only symbian & WM ).
- The only 3rd party navigation available is route66 , expansive , and still not available for asia market V S8003 .
- this is NOT a Symbian or WM mobile , it has its own OS ( TouchWiz v2.0 UI ) , i tried many applications ( java ) from getjar.com , and they all worked just fine .

I own a Nokia E71 (Symbian) and use it mostly with Google Maps and Internet browsing - because its browser works fine for my needs and has Flash support so I can watch full YouTube videos. But I am longing for a fullscreen, 3G-enabled feature phone from Samsung because I don't like the miniscule keypad on E71. Now there is S8000 and I8000 coming. So I have a few questions.
a) Can you use Google Maps the same way it can be used in a Nokia running Symbian? Are all the same functionalities there or is it hindered, forcing the user to pay for Route 66?
b) Is web browsing as good as with Symbian? The Symbian browsers are accredited to be the finest you can get on smartphones.
c) What are the real differences between S8000 and S8003?
d) For recharging, does it already use microUSB or still the old plug (same as J700, G600, D880, B5702, C5212, E746, E215, M310...)?
Naeemahmed, 05 Jul 2009I heard that in india the price of jet is just around 21000/- thats cool,such 800mhz processor... morewhere did u hear it ? voices in ur head ?
twas supposd to be 24k+ and available by June end... no word so far aaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrgggghhhh !!! where is it where is it where is it :(
they tagline it 'impatience is a virtue' n then make us wait forever for it..
May I ask how to check the total call time for Jet. As I am receiving my new phone soon. (To make sure the new phone is not used before by others.)
I heard that in india the price of jet is just around 21000/- thats cool,such 800mhz processor even iphone doesnt have this much capacity of processor,this phone is a hot cake,very good touch screen,media gate cubic and multi task with 5 megapixel and many more!
Andy, 04 Jul 2009At what point is this NOT a smart phone. I used to have an HTC tytn II. The Jet does all of ... moreIm verry interested on buying the phone. Since u have It I would like to know if it has document viewer and editor. I have an Dell Axim I do most of my work on it. So I would like to change and move on to buy a phone that covers all my needs. Can I play Power Point Excel and Word on it?
At what point is this NOT a smart phone. I used to have an HTC tytn II. The Jet does all of what that did and more, and it's much easier to use.
The Touch screen is way more responsive than the Blackberry storm, Data connection is good, again way better, quicker and more stable than the HTC.
Had this for just over 24 hours now and I can't fault it at all. I can take a picture and instantly upload it to facebook, which with the HTC Tytn II was a nightmare, if it would even upload.
The Jet is by far the best phone I have ever had. Only issues I have found so far is that playing a vid from youtube, the vid is fuzzy, that could just be the quality of the vid though. The only other thing is that the route66 navigation is not installed by default, I have gone though and installed it, but at £89 for 12 months just for a map of the UK, then £9.99 each for things like traffic, speed cams, weather... I looking for an alternative.
The 800mhz Processor is fast, applications take 1 - 2 seconds at the most, and it multi tasks better than my Windows XP PC. you can just keep opening stuff and it doesn't lag.
All in all I am very impressed with this phone. It was either this or the Nokia N97, I defo made the right choice.
looks really nice,,just wondering which OS does it run and is it upgradeable to WINDOWS?? I read its Android,, can anyone help me out....
