The Samsung Reclaim is a full-QWERTY slider that offers a nod to the environment with its bio-plastic shell and efficient charging system. And, of course, it’s green. A nice shade of green.
The 2.4-inch, 320 x 240 pixel resolution display offers crisp images and accurate colors. The phone book has a 600 entry capacity but, interestingly, syncs with MS Exchange, a feature that will be welcomed by many.
Another subtle but very important feature of the Samsung Reclaim is that it offers threaded SMS, meaning you can view/read text messages in an IM format, where the conversation is continuous and unimpeded. So, rather than searching for individual texts from the same conversation, they will all be linked together automatically for your convenience. I would hope this trend continues and becomes the norm.
The Samsung Reclaim has GPS, MMS, a 3.5mm headset jack, MP3 player, 2MP camera with video, speakerphone and other meaningful features that people actually use.
When you add up the full QWERTY keypad, threaded SMS, GPS and music player, you get a versatile phone that should appeal to a broad demographic.
