Samsung SCH-i600


The Samsung SCH-i600 is a dual-band phone with support for 800-MHz and 1,900-MHz CDMA. It's a bit larger and heavier (5 ounces) than the Motorola MPx200, but if you need CDMA's superior coverage, you won't mind carrying the extra bulk. The Samsung...

Schnelles Smartphone mit vollständiger Tastatur: Samsung SGH-I600


Die superschnellen Verbindungsoptionen und die QWERTZ-Tastatur machen das Samsung I600 zu einer guten Wahl für alle, die auch unterwegs arbeiten wollen. Vor einer Kaufentscheidung sollte man aber testen, ob die Tastatur den Ansprüchen genügt.

HSDPA und Wi-Fi, Scroll-Rad, Erweiterungssteckplatz für Micro-SD-Karten

Tastenfeld zu eng belegt, Kamera mit dürftigen Funktionen

The Samsung phone has slightly larger keys and buttons than the Motorola model, but the 2.2-inch, 176-by-220 resolution displays are the same, and both phones have a single SD/IO slot. The SCH-i600 comes with a standard battery that the company says...

Samsung SGH-i600 Ultra Messaging Windows Mobile Smartphone


Thanks to Samsung, I've recently got my hands on the final version of a Samsung SGH-i600, the EMEA/APAC version of Samsung's BlackJack which was launched late last year. While the i600 was announced earlier, the U.S. got it released faster but since...

Is the Samsung SGH-i600 the perfect device? No, it's not but it's close to be perfect. However, I have a couple of objections. First of all the stand-by time which is way too short. The standard battery gives a stand-by of around 48 hours without any...

Samsung i600


You either love Windows Mobile or hate it, and the Samsung i600 isn't going to win any beauty competitions, but overall the SGH-i600 looks like a very versatile and impressive device. Samsung say that the i600 should be available from Q4 2006.
