In his wacky commercial about finding the perfect personal assistant, Ozzy clearly elucidates the benefits of the Samsung Jack – a 3G Windows Media 6.1 smartphone that’s actually smart (complete with that scheduling thingie), fully multimedia equipped and (almost) fun to use, and, at $99.99 after rebate and two-year contract with AT&T Wireless, really cheap.
Pros: Easy-to-navigate; Full array of email, text and IM options; excellent music and video playback options; WiFi; 3.2 MP camera
