Samsung Adds to Ultra Lineup with Smart F700
Feb 8, 2007, 9:05 AM by (staff)
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!!!
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?
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.

Apple awoke the sleeping giant...
And because it lacks 3G, it's pretty much irrelevant in June of 2007!!!!!!!!
Which one is better: Iphone or Samsung F700??
my 2 cents
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
is this love...that im feelin...is this the love, that ive been searching for
HTC on the other hand has ALL the frequencies!!!!!!!
HOWEVER, this Sammy is in a different category. The qwerty pad makes it in a different league altogether...
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...
If it's not coming to the U.S. I'm NOT even interested!!!!!!!!!
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...
