Samsung SCH-A790 / SCH-A795 / IP-A790
Wow - Got the Phone!
I'm on the road at this moment (Seoul, Guam, Hawaii, California) and when I get home, I will write a review. In the meantime: I'm sure the #1 question is, "Hey, how did you get this phone?!?!?! I mean, WTF, over????" And this is really a good question.
The answer is, I didn't do anything special. I called 611 and basically ordered the phone. I was extremely nice to the lady who took my order and made...
Dimensions and feel...
It is WIDE. Almost too wide. It is pretty big for a modern cell phone, and a bit heavy at that. My most immediate comparison is the T730 I own, so it felt bigger and bulkier to say the least. The metal shell is very sturdy, and the phone has a solid feel.

No go. Order cancelled
I guess I'll have to wait the June 7th date.

I can't seem to find any trace of this on the Samsung site.
A way to get the phone
Click on "register your line" on rhw right hand side. If you are a home depot employee, all's well. If you are not, you still can fudge and register for now (hopefully unregister later). This makes you a b2b user.

Tomorrow - New Phone
Why the high price?
is it true...?
its a simple feature which seems wierd not to have..
please someone tell me why or correct me if i am mistaken..
Bad News !!!
This phone will not be sold to the general public ... unless you are a business customer of theirs.
a790 data capable?
Also, it would be great if that guy with the PDF could post it somewhere and provide the FTP details for us to grab it!!!

Anyway, the nice person at Intl Traveler said it would be out for us slugs June 7th. But get this: she wasn't sure the NE2 would apply!! WTF, over!?!?! I hope she's just being cautious and this isn't really the case.
She also confirmed in their specs it shows speakerphone. Whahoo.
