Samsung Jack – AT&T Wireless

Samsung Jack – AT&T Wireless

Samsung Jack is a smartphone that definitely aims at an audience that loves texting as it comes with a full QWERTY keyboard and decent messaging features. You have text and multimedia messaging with threaded chat view, instant messaging and mobile email with access to POP3/ IMAP accounts and to Outlook Web Access; you also have great call quality. You can view attachments in Word, Excel and Power Point format files.

The 2.4 inches LCD display delivers colorful images and legible text, but it will not impress you by any means. Underneath the screen, you have the navigation array and the QWERTY keyboard. The latter has decent sized buttons that are clearly delineated from each other and, overall, the typing experience is a pleasant one. However, we would have wished for the keys to be much better spaced between each other.

This Windows Mobile 6.1 device has basic features, such as: vibrate mode, polyphonic ringer, conference call capability, alarm clock, calendar, speakerphone and others. More advanced users will appreciate the presence of GPS (AT&T Navigator), stereo Bluetooth, voice commands, Wi- Fi, internet browser and 3.5G speeds.

As for fun, you have a digital player and a 3.2 megapixel camera with editing options and video recording capabilities. The picture quality is decent: there is very little image noise, but the colors look dull and washed out. Jack comes preinstalled with a few applications, such as: Mobile Banking, MobiTV and My Cast Weather.

Other high points of this device: you can upgrade it to the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system, it has an easy to use menu interface and it is quite responsive. Plus, you can get it from AT&T Wireless for free, as long as you are willing to sign a new two year agreement.
