Not So Hot...

Eh?
Cons: Phone looks kind of cool, but after handling a new one for about 1 minute, I saw how quickly this phone will be smudged and scratched. The main lcd is lower resolution and looks a lot worse than the decent screen on the Katana and Katana II. No color outer display is a downer too. VGA camera, seriously, what's the point in a camara with such low res?

Pros: It is a Sanyo, so it should be pretty reliable. Good first phone for your 14 year old daughter or for someone that wants a camera phone, but doesn't know what a megapixel is Smile

Degrade

i consider this a downgrade of the katana 2,
The screen is smaller, the internal screen resolution is less, external screen is not color, and the Katana 2 is much thinner and it looks a million times better

Instinct UI Question

So the "home" screen on the m800 Instinct is just the menu, like the iPhone? So the user CANNOT apply any sort of wall paper, let alone change the color of the UI itself.

I'm really wondering why Sprint was so afraid to include the Samsung TouchWIZ UI that just launched in Korea. Now that would have been really innovative compared to this bug-ridden build from the ground up (WHY??) fisher-price looking user interface.

It is my opinion that they should have let Samsung design the UI themselves, not outsource it to a 3rd party company. BAD idea.

HAHA TAKE THAT STEVE JOBS & ATT WIRELESS

Let me start off by saying I'm proud of Sprint and Samsung for coming up with the Instinct. This phone seems very profitable. Competition is what made America great at one time. IF YOU BUY AN UNLOCKED iPHONE YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO W/E HELL YOU WANT WITH IT AND IT SHOULDN'T BE RELOCKED. OTHERWISE DON'T CHARGE PEOPLE SUCH A HIGH PRICE FOR THESE WORTHLESS SOON TO BE OUTDATED DEVICE.
Before you know it walmart will be peddling Apple's iphone on shelves for $75 due to the fact so many better devices came out because people didn't want to wait for an unlocked iphone or the price to go down and the iphone has become yesterday's news. I hope the Samsung instinct is a big success that allows people way more freedom to tinker with it then Apple doe...

Samsung Soul

Samsung brought the new Soul (U900) to the show and they claim it is a GSM QUAD band (vs the tri band they brought to BWC 200Cool. I am hearing that it will not be available in the U.S. anyway. Has anyone out there herd anything about this phone coming to the U.S. or if it can be purchased as an unlocked QUAD band?

Joby Zivio???

Anyone have any updated info on availability of the Joby Zivio bluetooth headset?

(their website for ref: http://www.joby.com/products/zivio/ )

It seemed to make a splash when announced a few months ago, but I can't find any news of it from CTIA. Zivio was supposed to be available this spring (according to the company), but still nothing but dead air out there in the marketplace and in the media.

Anyone have any current info on the Zivio?

Again T-Mobile fails to deliver

Everything seems to be AT&T, Sprint, Verizon. Nothing ground breaking for T-Mobile. Really sad. What is wrong with them as a company? Are they scared to show and talk about new devices?

Hey Rich... LG Phones

Rich, did LG bring any slim sliders (other than the Glimmer) that rival the LG KF510 that was unvailed at MWC 2008. Seems like Europe gets the cool phons and we get the cheep plastic phones. A KF510 would be killer in the US! Cool

VZW's enV2

...looks pretty ugly on the outside. The extra-huge keypad is a real turnoff, it looks like it's made for the elderly.
