What I meant was that Samsung was one of the first to the market with a color screen flip - this was a big feat seeing as there weren't too many out there.

Now, they introduce things *after* everyone else.

Features that are becoming stale/common: Bluetooth, megapixel cameras (2 or 3mp would be what I consider *new*), music

At this point bt, music, and 1.x megapixel cameras are common - I could purchase any of a number of phones that play my mp3s or take 1.3 quality picture. I want something new - I don't drink coffee, so a phone doing that for me wouldn't be too awesome - maybe I'd be impressed for the "cool factor" -

And as for "all beauty, no brains" - sure Samsung has bt on many of their phones, but the last bt enabled Samsung I bought let you do virtually nothing with your connection. Needless to say, I'm a bit skeptical to purchase another one solely because it has bt.

Right now, the creative things I'm interested in are being put out by Motorola. Samsung seems to be in a holding pattern/catching up with the creative and imaginative things that Moto is doing. Even Nokia seems to be stuck in the same old form factor with the same old mp camera, just with a different faceplate.

Samsung needs to finish their TV phone, work on built in GPS (the real deal - mass market), and more - be creative!
