Samsung SGH-i780

Samsung i780 is one of the few recent models of the manufacturer, running on the Professional edition of the Windows Mobile 6 Operating System.

Samsung boasts of having some of the slimmest mobile phones in the world. The company has obviously applied its know-how to this i780 as it is a mere 12.9mm thick.

It has a large touch-sensitive display with resolution of 320 x 320, but yet utilizes the slim candybar form-factor with a full hardware QWERTY-arranged keyboard. The LCD takes up most of the front of the handheld.

The keypad buttons are longish in shape and well-spaced out with good tactile feedback. It makes for very good thumb typing, as good as what you’d find on Treo and BlackBerry devices.Samsung is innovative with the navigation method: there is no D-pad, joystick, or even trackball. There is a touchpad as in a portable computer, through which you must sweep a finger to control an on-screen pointer and press it to confirm. If this method is not your favorite, it can be turned into a 'virtual 4-way controller and in addition, the 2.55 320×320 pixels touch screen and the stylus are present, of course.

Samsung i780 supports triband GSM/GPRS/EDGE at 900/1800/1900 MHz and single-band UMTS/HSDPA at 2100MHz. The connectivity side passes the test with WiFi of 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. The long-rumored GPS is indeed included, which is fast becoming a standard on high-end smartphones.

CNET Asia Reviews:

The good: Attractive price; good QWERTY keyboard; convenient shortcuts; slim design; extra battery included.

The bad: Square screen may not work well with third-party programs; optical joystick not as fast as regular directional pad; bundled GPS app not optimized.

The bottom line: Though not perfect, the i780 is an excellent choice for those who want the most features in a sub-S$1,000 PDA-phone.

Motorola ZN200

Motorola latest mid-range slider, the ZN200, has shown its face on the FCC pages recently.

This handset sporting such specs as a 2 megapixel camera with 8x digital zoom and video recording capability, Bluetooth, 2.5mm audio jack, microSD card slot, media player and built in FM radio. unlike the 5 megapixel Kodak shooter lavished on the MotoZINE ZN5, however a 2 megapixel camera will still take the images a user needs.

The ZN200 only brings dual-band GSM (850/1900MHz) to the table, however, which hints towards at either T-Mobile or AT&T Mobility here in the U.S. as possible carriers.Unfortunately that's about it spec wise as no other specs were mentioned about the MoroZINE ZN200 apart from the slight references to possible multiple audio and video formats, but as multimedia recording and playback was expected anyway on the ZN200 it's not that much of a surprise to see mention of video/audio support.
