So what is it with Panasonic...

I just need some opinions. I was planning on saving up for the Panasonic X700 and have heard many excellent things about that phone but now I'm wondering if I should wait for the X800 to be released. It sounds the same but with internal atenna and no flash.

Slow Carriers

What is with these SLOW carriers? The USA really needs to speed up with the GSM techno vibe. T-Mobile is really lacking on nice phones packed with tons of features. Verizon, in my opinion, is doing the best. T-Mobile needs to really kick it with EDGE in the summer, because it is behind on the cell phone train. Cingular is to busy with trying to make its plans better, and providing new services like streaming TV that it has no focus on the make and model of the cell phone. There are so many great phones out there that are just sitting in the Manufacturing Office, waiting to be service .(metaphorically speaking) Verizon is issuing nice phones and and services, like V-Cast. CDMA is beating GSM by the mile.... Surprised
Not true. Look at all the cool phones Verizon has Rolling Eyes! Prior to the Cingular/AWS merger ATT had UMTS in I belive 8 Cities, they had a nationwide EDGE over lay. Now I think cingular is working on a EDGE overlay correct me if i am wrong, but hands ...

UMA - Bring it on baby

That's one fix with UMA...people who don't have coverage in their houses. Step through the door to seamless coverage through WiFi. Beautiful.

Samsung - Same phone, different shell...

Samsung really seems to disappoint me these days. They use to have all the new gadgets and features - but even then, it was "all beauty, no brains" You couldn't really do anything with some of the toys. Now, the beauty is slipping too. They are still flashy, but pack no truly new features.

Same flips, different trade show.

Bleh!

PS - Shame on Samsung for making such big news of the P705 TV Phone back in the 4Q of 2003 - where is it?!?
I don't understand your post. What is not a new feature on these phones. I've been dealing phones for 5 years now and all of these handesets include everything that all of my customers and I want. We want a phone that has bluetooth (check) more than a...

The mm-a700 is a tv phone, i have it-
Just because you don't see it, that doesn't mean Samsung is not producing new interesting phones. In Korea, they aleady have TV phones in the market, they also have phone that can do banking, etc. Samsung is becoming more careful about showing off n...

SGH-E730, E880, E720

Will these phones be released in the US?

They look great and have all the "essentials", but none of that matters if the phones never come out.

It would be great if one of the phones could come out for T-Mobile.

Just my opinion.

Thanks Rich Brome for the inside scoop.

US carriers need to open their ears and hear what customers really want. I've been wanting D500 since it came out but haven't heard anything from any of the US carriers yet. In the U.S. market, there's only one phone that interests me currently, Mot...

rich, question for you!!

can you post pix of the 3g phones that support GSM as well? such as the samsung z500, the z800i by SE, etc.....because those phones could be used on a US network :-)
Theoretically, yes, you can use some European 3G phones on GSM 1900 networks like T-Mobile.

But there are usually not "generic" unlocked versions of 3G phones, unlike regular GSM phones. The 3G phones are usually heavily customized for specific car...

where are the pics of the new SE's?

How come we dont have any pics of the z800 and the k600?
Because they're 3G phones for Europe and Asia. Phone Scoop focuses on the US market.

Samsung 720

I have the E715, and although I had a brief (and ill advised) stint with the E315, I love my phone.

Is the exterior display on the 720 still just the multicolor, or are they switching to full color on it?
Full 65k colors on it.

I know Haier with their P7 was in 3GSM....

so any new photos? Or you decided not to shoot it again? Cool
I saw the Haier P7 its nothing special, in fact its only dual band 900/1800 Mgz it can't even be used in the US. You are not missing much. However I have held the Nokia 7280 an that is a beauty, but no keypad really. It's hard to dial.

Disappointed

I am very disappointed with what i am seeing at this trades show. Isn't this the year of the mp3 phone? Where are the hard drive phones the ones with the micro drives? I guess i have to wait till next month to see what SE has in store for us w/ there walkman branded cell phones. Sure they have mp3 out but on stinkin flash memory. I would personally hate to have to use one of those tiny cards and know i would lose one if i had one. The industry needs to get w/ the program, the technology is there they just need to utilize it.

I take it back...

I'll take back everything I said about the Nokia 6101 looking decidedly "Samsungish". What a great looking handset...thanks for the closeups, Rich!

Hey Rich... what about that D720?

Is that going to be a real model?

What are the chances of seeing this in the US?
Just posted some info on the D720.

I wouldn't expect an official US release, but it is tri-band.
