Samsung Jack to arrive this May 19th
Samsung does make pretty good cell phones, and they have managed to introduce the super slim culture quite a few years back with the Ultra series. Their efforts on the smartphone front ain’t too shabby either with the BlackJack and BlackJack II offering a decent Windows Mobile experience wherever you are, but they do pale in comparison (along with a majority of other handsets, I might add) with the mighty iPhone when it comes to usability and ease-of-use. Well, Samsung ain’t about to throw in the towel just yet by getting ready to release the new Jack which will be available from AT&T this May 19th.
Hopefully the Samsung Jack will be able to follow in the footsteps of its predecessors, and it does help that the device looks pretty sleek and serious for the business person. Definitely not a phone you would want to pull out and flash for some fashion points, as the main focus is keeping you connected at all times no matter where you are over the nation’s fastest 3G network. In order to compose your emails and text messages in double quick time, Samsung has thrown in an optimized keyboard for accurate typing alongside a bevy of communications options including SMS, instant messaging as well as access to multiple e-mail accounts.
The inclusion of Microsoft Office Outlook Mobile on the Jack allows both enterprise and small business customers to stay connected with synchronization of schedules and contacts, while Internet Explorer Mobile makes Web browsing painless. As for Office Mobile, productivity is enhanced on-the-go thanks to its ability to handle Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents. It might run on Windows Mobile 6.1 at this moment, but it can be upgraded to Windows Mobile 6.5 when that becomes available. Other hardware specifications include 256MB RAM, a 3.2-megapixel camera with video-capture capabilities, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) connectivity and integrated aGPS support.
