Samsung BlackJack Review
19 December 2006
Excerpt: At some point cell phone designers will stop screwing around with the keypad layout. To help differentiate its otherwise slammin’ Blackjack (aka SGH-1607), available from Cingular for $499.99 (or $199.99 with the usual contract commitment stipulations), Samsung’s industrial designers could not resist screwing with the numeric keypad.
Pros: Windows Mobile 5; thin and slim; MicroSD card slot; extra battery and charger included
Cons: Poorly designed and tightly constricted keypad; non-standard headphone jack
Summary: A solid, if not outstanding entry to the smart phone market, the BlackJack is a mixed bag. It has HSDPA, an excellent display and good email functionality, but the inability to edit documents and the lack of Wi-Fi are sour points.
Pros: HSDPA capable, ships with two batteries and a second battery charger, bright, wide display, three-way scroll wheel for navigation
Cons: Cramped keypad, no Wi-Fi, no included microSD card, no included headphones and no 3.5mm jack, limited multimedia file support, can't edit Office documents, USB 1.1
