Samsung Adds to Ultra Lineup with Smart F700

Article Comments  55

The new Ultra Smart F700 from Samsung is a GSM 900/1800/1900 multimedia slider with 7.2 Mbps HSDPA for fast wireless downloads. The F700 adds a Flash-based touchscreen user interface (similar to Apple's iPhone) that lets users interact with the features and functions of the phone, such as accessing playlists or adjusting the volume directly on the screen. The screen uses a technology called VibeTonz that alerts users when they have activated a control or button. The 2.78-inch screen slides up to reveal a full qwerty keyboard for text messaging, emailing or web browsing. The F700 also has a 5.0 megapixel autofocus camera and Bluetooth. It will be showcased at 3GSM next week in Barcelona.

Apple look what you did!!!

Haven't they always said let sleeping dogs lie... well apple done f-d that up...
This is a great looking comm device.

But I must say that Samsung hos NOT been sleeping these past years waiting for the iphone to wake them up. Sammy has put forth outstanding phones in their Ultra line for a while now as well as their YEP playe...

What OS is this thing running?

Is it Windows Mobile or something else, I can't tell?
My guess is it'll be running WinMo 6.

WOW, WOW, and WOW, is what I have to say, I'm curious if theres a WAY to configure this thing to be used on Cingular's HSDPA network, oh I do wonder.

Samsung needs to be given a talkin to about the lack of q...

U.S. ???????????????????????

I doubt it it is a great idea but Apple stil has a fe advantages. One of which is there OS which isbetter then anything Windows can come up with unless they blatently rip Apple off(Windows Vista Laughing ) what a joke. Also It probably will only be out in Japan or something. Cool
Apple iPhone LACKS a keyboard, Hello!!!!!!!!
And because it lacks 3G, it's pretty much irrelevant in June of 2007!!!!!!!!

Which one is better: Iphone or Samsung F700??

I, personally, am not decided which phone is better. That's why I would like to know what others think, and see if someone can convince me one way or the other. To be honest both phones are great. Smile
Have you experienced either phone yet or are you just speculating? I think having it and using it is 90% of the battle.

no 850 no hspda running on the right speed(band) we just r getting 2 mexipal camera phone 5 is at least 3 years away think about it it 2007 and we r at 2 megapixal cameras 4 years ago my regular digital camera was 2 megs so it a way off but if we did get this (which we won't) it definlty compete with t moblie sidekick (i love it) but don;t get ur hopes up it not coming to cingualr/att that a garuntee

I love you samsung F700 Drooling
This love affair may be short lived when you find out the price of this lovely phone. Beautiful to look at delightful to hold But if you break it it is sold!!! The big trouble with phones like these is they make you drool all over the touch screen. ...

This phone could be the end all for me. The all in one and beautiful look. I will switch carriers, sell my house and my soul for this phone.
Hold on now!!!!! It LACKS quad band GSM, and lacks Tri-band HSDPA! ! ! !

HTC on the other hand has ALL the frequencies!!!!!!!

Go Samsung!!!!

Take the apple, chew on it and spit it out!
Why all the Apple/i-product hate? I'm NOT an Apple fanboy. But give Apple creds for it's popular design philosophy- simple and functional.

HOWEVER, this Sammy is in a different category. The qwerty pad makes it in a different league altogether...

Based on the picture and the Pythagorean theorem, the size of this phone is 1.87 * 3.61 inches, or 48 * 92 mm.

The Apple phone is 4.5 * 2.4 inches. That means the face of the Samsung is 38% smaller than the iPhone... very pocketable... unless the width is ridiculous I'd much rather own the Samsung...
actually, if you click on more info and look at the specs (bottom of page) the dimensions are 104 x 50 x 16.4 mm, so smaller face but a little fatter than the iphone (not bad for having a sliding keyboard though)

WHAT ?!?!?!?!?!?

Holy Crap... 5.0mp Camera, Touchscreen, and Bluetooth... Throw in the kitchen sink and you got a deal... too bad the US will never see it... Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Laughing Laughing Twisted Evil Twisted Evil
Ah heck, try to get it unlocked!!!

If it's not coming to the U.S. I'm NOT even interested!!!!!!!!!
Throw in QUAD BAND and you got a deal!!!!!
Hopefully it does, we just don't know it yet, maybe we'll find out for sure next week during 3GSM, that 5MP w/auto-focus is absolutley awesome.

I'm curious what's going to happen with the digital camera m...
