Samsung Ultra Smart Touch-Screen Qwerty Phone: iPhone's Vader

Brian Brotarlo 7 years ago

Beating the Apple iPhone to the punch will require more than just 3G connectivity, slim dimensions and a higher megapixel count put Ultra Smarttogether. But what if you've got a phone with all three features with touch-screen and - a pause is called for at this point - a slide-out QWERTY keyboard all packed... another pause... in a slim design?

Samsung have just announced their latest Ultra offering and the F700, which is a smartphone with slide-out keyboard, HSDPA, a 5.0 MP camera and touch-screen, and built-in Wi-Fi, looks like an iPhone killer if there has ever been such a thing.

The QWERTY keyboard looks absolutely fantastic with big keys, minus the peripherals a separate row for numerals, F-functions, arrow keys, etc. The 2.78-inch touch-sensitive screen uses a Flash-based user interface, which will be a welcome site for Web addicts. Virtual controls will have enhanced usability because of VibeTonz.

More info, especially with regards to pricing and date of availability, next month during the 3GSM World Congress.

  • zbiggie 7 years ago

    the keyboard is key. many people will love, especially if they have openoffice functanality, The camera is also great at 5mpx you are looking at great pictures, as long as the lense is good quality, and hopfully it comes with a stocked onboard memory at least 2G with a decent proccesor

    so it has a keyboard cos it doesn't have a '''multi''' touch screen like iphone.unlike iphone the screen act as screen and keyboard and it works well with itunes.iphone is just like a mac,you can download whatever application in a website.

  • colton 6 years ago

    all depends on what cell carriers it has i could love or hate

  • violet_54873 6 years ago

    i have this phone and it is amazing! i love it, easy to use and i dont know how i lived without it. its small enough to put it in your pocket and big enough to hold it with your shoulder when your hands are busy. p.s if u have long nails, cut them bc it's a big difficult with the touch screen, i cut mine:)

  • buzzyy 5 years ago

    Help mee

    ( = x

  • Joyce_66283 5 years ago

    I'm sure I have the same question as many people.
    When will this phone come to Canada?
    I WANT IT SO BAD!
    Also I heard the touchscreen messes up easily?
    I would like to know. =)

  • violet_54873 5 years ago

    In a way it's true, the battery dies faster when you use text messaging and games, when you talk on the phone it doesn't die as fast. It is available in europe and it cames unlocked. But the internet option does not work if u buy it somewhere else outside north america. Except for that, it's an awesome phone and if you are text messaging junkie this is your best friend.

  • michaela_20825 5 years ago

    i want this phone so bad but is it avaluable for sprint??? and what you dont get the internet on it??

  • michaela_20825 5 years ago

  • kelsayy 5 years ago

    Do you have to have verison to purchase the phone?
    Do you have to buy internet or television when you buy it?

  • lobog 5 years ago

  • Matthew Farrer 5 years ago

    where can i get one?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

  • sydney_69822 5 years ago

    drat . . . i want it sooooo bad . . . y canada have NOTHING!

  • Mart_91492 5 years ago

    I would hope that Canada will start getting the cool phones a lot sooner.
    The CDMA phones are a lot nicer than the GSM phones unless your
    willing to paying an arm and leg. I will never go with Bell Mobility again and
    would like Rogers and Fido to step it up and sell nicer phones on a
    plan not the shit that they have know.
    Thanks for reading hope someone that works for Rogers or Fido reads
    this...

    I heard its really good, but i dont think it could beat my phone. i love my phone, its an LG enV2but i kinda wannna get the enV TOUCH cuz its really good!!!!!!

  • Justin_30984 5 years ago

    i don't know why people say iphones good.....
    i don't know why it's so popular...
    i mean it has respectable features like buying any application u want, or u can jailbreak it
    but there are so many other better phones that has less flaws than iphone
    and F700 is definitely one of them

  • krystal_5495 5 years ago

    wow this phone looks exactly like the qlyde !

  • PhoneLova 4 years ago

    I really want a touch and a QWERTY phone but it has to be on Pay As You Go! As soon as I find a really nice phone, it's either too expensive or it's not on Pay As You Go! I'm starting to get really annoyed but if anyone has any suggestions it would help me out alot!
    Thank You.

    PhoneLova! x :-)

    Hi, I am not totally satisfied with this phone. I have been using Nokia for years and am sorry now I stepped over to Samsung.
    The Qwerty has a tendency to turn itself on/off in my pocket. Last week it went so far that I had to use the PUK to get it going again. When I turned it on again the settings were changed. When using phone, calling a company with " dail #1 for sales" etc, you need to be careful that your ear doesnt diall for you when you put it back to it.
    Also, I have a " clamp" phone holder in my car. I cannot put the qwerty in it cos then the buttons on the side will be pressed in.
    My next phone will be a Blackberry.
    Sorry Sam

  • RhiRhi 4 years ago

    omygosh! I really want this phone does anyone know how much it is??
    thnx!

  • sursura 4 years ago

    Only kids and morons who love doing thing complicated way get it.
    Once they got it, play it for awhile, a yr or less, dumb it for a new one.
    Unlike iphone or RIM BB, simplicity and specific targeted design. Once you got it, last for as long as the much better version out. More than 2-3 yrs?
    This prove, people who bought copycat who lack of genuine creative from origin, will always loser.
    Samsung, LG etc, are all losers.

  • that guy_23501 4 years ago

  • Kathleen Synea 4 years ago

    I know from all of the comments bellow that a lot of people like this phone, but is this phone actually reliable? Like is it a phone that will last a long time (meaning year(s))? It's Samsung and I'm not all too familiar with phone brands so...is Samsung good? More specifically is this Samsung phone good and will last long? Thanks!
