Review: Samsung Instinct
Does Not Sync With Outlook????? MAJOR MAJOR MISTAKE!!!
There is no excuse or no reason for this omission!!!!
I don't care what Sprint/Samsung say about this not being a phone for business users...that it is for "consumers". Why not have a bigger vision (such as Apple) and make it for ALL MARKET SEGMENTS of the cell phone industry?
DUMB DUMB DUMB!!!!!!
There's the treo the centro, the curve, pearl, and 8830, touch, mogul, ace, and 700wx, that's 9 phones that sync with outlook. Do we really need another one?
There's no such thing as an "ALL MARKET SEGMENTS" phone. This phone is the high-end feature phone, not a PDA.
It syncs e-mail and your contacts wirelessly, and will in the future sync the calendar. What else do you need outlook for?
Don't have it sync with Outlook because 9 other phones DO sync with Outlook? It would seem to me that should be the standard for high end/flashy/expensive phones such as the Instinct.
I understand there is not an "ALL MARKET SEGMENT" phone, but why limit yourself to one segment? Why not TRY to go after the business segment? Especially the "Pro-sumer" segment? That's what RIM has done and they have been more profitable and popular, and successful than ever!!!
And how hard would it be to give this phone the capability to sync with Outlook? If you don't use the feature, no big deal, but for a lot of people, the fact that it doesn't sync with Outlook is a DEAL BREAKER!!!
What else is there to sync? You...
I understand that now pretty much every phone has a camera. Not every user uses a camera. The same may come to pass with this and other features.
Instinct just took the lead (at least in my book) against the iPhone.
It's possible that it syncs with outlook but to what extent I don't know.
I installed the software again, and it only syncs with outlook contacts. No Task, Calendar, Memo support yet.
The instinct will do the following:
