Anything can be refuted. There are no absolutes in life. Wink

It sounds like you dislike Motorola. I think both companies have their strengths and weaknesses. Both opinions are valid.

But just to play devil's advocate... let me refute: Twisted Evil

Where is Samsung on Bluetooth? They announced the SGH-X410 but never shipped it. They do that a lot - announce cool phones that they never deliver. They're the only top-5 manufacturer without a single Bluetooth model.

What about voice dialing? They have the excellent Voice Signal software on their CDMA models, but all too often their top-end GSM phones lack this critical feature.

How about smartphones? And I don't mean PDA phones. They have the i600 for CDMA, but again on the GSM side - nothing. They promised the D700, but again they canceled it. Only time will tell if they actually ship the D710 or I250.

And quad-band?? Nothing.

Notice that Motorola is far ahead in all of these areas.

I would also ding Samsung for their horridly un-intuitive interfaces, but I'm not sure Motorola is any better in that department.
