Re: Samsung - Same phone, different shell...
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!
wha wha what?! samsung only has bluetooth on ONE of their phones currently for sale and that is the D500, NO other samsung that is out now has BT, so i think you are confusing it with another company, the only thing i DONT like about samsung is how they put out all these bad ass show phones but never release them, and as for GPS, you need a FAST network for that, and guess what? america doesnt have a nationwide established HSDPA network just yet, when it does GPS will be availible, my friend in japan has it on his phone and its awesome
