One of the last released phones of 2007 is the Samsung F700 (super) Smart Phone – which will only be available on the Vodafone network. A touch-sensitive screen, and the standardised QWERTY keyboard make this phone an ultra-desirable handset for this up-coming Christmas.It looks gorgeous – it feels gorgeous and it is released on the 27th November 2007.
The touchscreen takes advantage of Samsung’s own VibeTonz technology which vibrates when it is touched. The iPhone touch-screen is occasionally fiddly as you are constantly flicking between looking at which keys you are pressing and then the display to see if it has recorded your touch. Using this VibeTonz technology feels more intuitive than the iPhone and makes for a swifter method of using a touch-screen. Well done Samsung!
Business users will love the horizontal slide-out keyboard which makes your typing easy.
The phone weighs in at only 139g, it is a weeny 15.9 mm thick. The 3.2 inch widescreen displays at 440 x 240 pixels. The phone is capable at browsing the web at super-fast speeds as it is 3G compatible (have that Apple!) and even has a built in HTML web browser to display websites as you would see them on your computer.
Did I forget to mention the stunning 3 Megapixel camera, coupled with the 1 Gb memory card (The phone can hold up to 3.5 Gb) – enough for around 1,000 MP3’s or 90 entire albums.
Vodafone are also throwing in some excellent Bose headphones with this phone.
Many websites have already declared this the iPhone-beater and ssshh, don’t tell the mugs buying the iPhone, but this IS a better phone – especially for those who not only want the media playing capabilities but also the ability to send emails etc.
