A Samsung spokesperson today confirmed that the company no longer plans to release the i645 CDMA smartphone. The i645 was to be the first Windows Mobile Smartphone with EV-DO high-speed data, and was slated to be offered by Verizon Wireless. According to the spokesperson, the decision was made jointly by Samsung and the carrier. It is believed the i645 has been replaced on Verizon's device roadmap by the Motorola Q, which also runs the Windows Mobile Smartphone platform, and will be available in a CDMA EV-DO version. The cancellation of the i645, combined with availability problems for the Motorola MPx220 in Cingular's lineup, leaves a vacuum of new Windows Mobile Smartphones in a traditional clamshell form factor, as the trend toward QWERTY-keyboard devices like the Moto Q and Palm's Treo accelerates.

Am I the only one that wants this?
I want a flip style phone with Windows Mobile so I can have Outlook, and I want to get it under contract so that the features will be supported and the price will be discounted. Just seems impossible right now. It's a little frustrating. 😕 Oh well, another one bites the dust.
hmmmm.. did anyone want this or did anyone even know about this phone?
any one else?
the q is a tmo exclusive
1. Cingular has bought the exclusive rights to Motorola's RAZR line. The Q is a part of that line. T-Mobile will most likely get it at a later time.
2. I don't think T-Mobile is dumb enough to blow their money ...
While there is a GSM prototype of the Q, apparently its production is not certain. They may skip it and work on a 3G WCDMA version instead.
The CDMA EV-DO version, however, is definite. So if T-M...
Is anyone else a little worried...
It is very very likely that I'll not get another PDA/Smartphone until they start making new clamshell models.
Am I the only one?
Now, I truely couldn't care less about the cancelation of this phone. However it marks a disturbing trend away from clamshell style PDA and smartphones.
It is very very likely that I'll not get another PDA/Smartphone
The Q will be a much better phone anyway.I don't think verizon is going to be know very much longer for having the worst handset line up. They seem to be really stepping up to the plate in so many aspects. Go verizo
