Samsung SCH i-760 Cellular Phone/Smart Phone
Truth in advertising prevails with the Samsung SCH-i760 smartphone. The Samsung SCH-i760 proudly bears the tagline of “your new mobile office”, and it is one of few products that can successfully live up to its boast.
There is a lot to admire about the i760. First of all, the front screen is a full touch. This might not be a new feature since we live in the age of the iPhone, but the i760 conquers some new territory with its design.
You see, one of the problems that many touchscreen smartphones have is that a user can open up something he or she doesn’t want. There are certain areas that are precise, and the slightest brush with a finger can trigger it. Considering that the i760 has a high resolution, it is no wonder why it comes with a tiny stylus that collapses right into the side of the unit. Now all a user has to do is not lose that thing.
The user also has the option of interfacing with a QWERTY keyboard that is revealed once the screen is slid up. The screen then goes from vertical to horizontal view quickly and automatically.
The QWERTY set up is perfect for surfing the web, and the i-760 is Wi-Fi capable. Not only can it surf the web from the cell-phone line, but it can automatically detect and latch onto any access point available. A user can surf the web or check email from almost anywhere. A user can also use the phone as a tethered modem thanks to Broadband Access connect.
The i760 also comes with Windows Mobile 6 already download into it. Programs like Word, Powerpoint, and Excel can be accessed, and then, with the help of Active Sync and a USB connection, anything on the phone can be downloaded right into the computer. I even found that my schedule from Microsoft Office Outlook was somehow magically downloaded onto my phone.
I found that this was a pretty good camera feature for 1.3 Megapixels. The camera has a flash, and can even do video footage. The user can even send their videos to other mobiles with MMS Video messaging. Transmissions are also capable via Bluetooth wireless in order to sync up with other Bluetooth devices.
The phone comes with 128MB Flash Memory, and 64MB of RAM. It also has a microSD slot for expandable memory in case you want to store extra audio, video, or any other types of files.
The Samsung SCH-i760 is available from Verizon for about $449.99 with a 2-year contract. You can probably get it on a discount from Verizon for about $349.99.
