🤨 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 🙂
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
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.
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 OTHERWISE DON'T CHARGE PEOPLE SUCH A HIGH PRICE FOR THESE WORTHLESS SOON TO BE OUTDATED DEVICE.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... (continues)
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 200😎. 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?
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.
Does anyone know if they will when they will start adding phones to the list of devices that can be upgraded" I used to have a Shadow and now I have a Dash and I am dying to get that UI back from the Shadow without actually owning another one. Thanks
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! 😎
