😁 I have one question about the picture taking portion of this AMAZING camera phone! Umm it seems that this phone can only take horizontal pictures, 🙄 I'm sure it can take vertical pictures but since the camera is on the side of the phone it would be quite difficult wouldn't it 😕 (if you understand what I'm trying to say) 😉 I wish there were more pixels on the main screen and a 262 color screen on the outside, it seems a pity to down-grade my Sanyo MM-5600 for this phone... 😳 BUT this phone looks so cool and has tempting features and such a beautiful design. 😁

Almost perfect!

First of all, big up to Samsung. They have finally delivered a phone that I'm actually very interested in. Bluetooth and speakerphone, Wowee!!! Samsung has been listening and delivered the goods but will the phone be bug free. That will remain to be seen.

I have faith the pic quality will be great but something tells me Samsung is gonna screw up somewhere. Probably with it's infamous noise cancellation bug.

Nethertheless, sounds like a great phone. All it needed to be perfect was a QVGA screen. Watch the scumbags give Sprint a similar version but with a QVGA screen. Everyone knows Samsung has their lips on Sprint's ass. Always giving them the better stuff and treating Verizon has second best. Have the tables finally turned? Stay tuned...

Release Date

The estimated release date isn't until Christmas. Later when Verizon launches the Music on Demand they will also launch the Samsung SCH-a950-----music phone------. The phone should be expected to be around 249.99 with a $50.00 mail-in rebate or online rebate

Just recieved the Rebate Forms today!!

We just recieved the rebate forms for the phone already.... They say that they are "valid if purchased through August 28"... but who knows Verizon always takes extra time with testing. I'm hoping it comes out before the end of August too... but I wouldn't be surprised if even the rebates that we recieved are wrong.

😳 I can't believe I got the Sanyo MM-5600, I should've waited just a little bit longer for this phone to come out, oh well 🙄 I guess I'll wait for the sprint version to come out or whatever...yeah. But I know as soon as I get this phone a new model will pop up that I will envy over 😢 Before I fly away does anyone at all...no one in particular, just someone, if they know if this phone is half or full duplex speakerphone 😕 Well I'm gonna go now, so I'll leave you with my signature 🙄 , here it is... KUNG POW BAM! 😁 😛

CCD Camera Phones

Were there any camera phones that use a CCD sensor rather than a CMOS?

All the megapixels in the world done mean a thing if the lens and the sensor are not high quality.

If you compare the MPX220 1.3 mp CMOS camera to the SE S710A 1.3 mp CCD camera there is no comparison.

Aside from the s710a are any other manufacturers planing on putting together a phone with a CCD camera to compete with the s710a?

The reason I ask is that I like all the features on the Sony-ericsson, but I do not like their interface. I may stand alone on this fact but I prefer the motorola interface, especially when it comes to their predictive text input and various menu navigation.

I am trying out the s710a for a few days and I have decided they...

I think what is missing

That should have been reported were the small upstart companies.

I talked to some of the manufacturer reps and more than a few of them were impressed with the design and build qualities of some of the smaller Chinese and Korean venture groups.

One group that was really impressive at the show was NewGen with their really cool designs.

Under an inform discussion in the eating area, some of the these product managers feel that in the next 10 years, some of them (like Hop On, Bird, New Gen, Telson) maybe in the top 10 market and some of the older stalwarts in the world markets (like Alcatel, Philips, Siemens and Mitsubishi) may pull out as phones becomes total commodity items.

About "Cingular" on the F7200 screen...

Like I mentioned for reasons stated in the new Part 2, I complied with LG's request and covered up the carrier logo on the F7200 keypad.

I'm sure some of you also noticed that it said "Cingular" on the display, and I did not cover that up...

That was intentional. It was not an oversight, and is not any kind of "cheating" with LG's request.

The deal is... what a GSM phone says on the screen is not necessarily the carrier that brands and sells that phone. Depending on how the phone and/or SIM chip are configured, the name on the screen is usually that of the carrier that sold the SIM, or the current network the phone may be roaming on.

So the fact that it says "Cingular" on the screen means very little and doesn't necessarily gives...

Lack of Quad-Band GSM phones

I am always amazed that more carriers don't spend the extra money and make their GSM phones Quad-Band (850/900/1800/1900) instead of coming out with one or even two tri-band versions of the same phone.

I realize that very few people actually seek out quad-band phones, but if you're making the phone capable for three frequencies, why not four?

Perhaps the rest of the manufacturers know something that Motorola will not admit - that squeezing 4 radios in these compact phones affects RF performance.

Anyway I will continue to only purchase quad-band, as the last thing I want to do is get stuck wishing I had GSM 900 in Gabon or GSM 1800 in Trinidad. And you pretty much need 850/1900 here in the states. Oh well.
