VGA 1000 - Possible Video Capture???


Dec 3, 2003, 5:39 PM
When the Samsung A-620/VGA 1000 was announced, the Phone Scoop page for the phone noted that the phone was capable of video capture (now more interesting that Sprint has launched the video service), but may or may not be enabled when the phone came out. Well, it was not enabled. But I wonder if it now can be. Any thoughts? Could a software upgrade be in the works that would 'turn on' the video camera?

Actually, the page said the A620 was capable of streaming video playback. The hardware was originally designed to do that, but the feature didn't make the final design. I doubt a software update will be released to add it.

Ahh...thank you Rich. Well, I guess I can HOPE for a future upgrade for the video playback.

Video Streaming and Playing the video the video phone records are different.

The Samsungs were supposed to stream video with 1KTV, RealONE, and MobiTV.

Only Video phones will play the video they record.
