Samsung i730

MobileTechReview have a very deep review of this very cool device: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/samsung-i730.htm

The Swiss Army Knife of Pocket PC phones. It has everything except a camera: Bluetooth, WiFi, EVDO, an AV remote, excellent thumb keyboard and voice recognition. Not only that, it's quite compact, especially with the standard battery. If you're a power user craving serious processing power, plenty of memory and triple wireless, the i730 beckons. The keyboard slider is well made and has nice spring-loaded action and the keyboard itself is on par with the Treo 650. The screen is vibrant and bright, incoming call volume is good enough for even noisy places and Bluetooth plays well with all the headsets we tested. Samsung includes nice goodies in the box: both a standard and extended battery, a folding cradle which can charge both batteries, a stereo headset and a spare stylus. Not bad, though the Samsung isn't perfect. Battery life isn't stellar, you must turn off the phone to use WiFi and the buttons are maddeningly easy to press by accident. Yes it has a key lock slider, but who wants to use that to carry the phone from one room to the next? Gamers won't be happy that the i730 doesn't support simultaneous button presses. And of course, as per Verizon's rule, it doesn't support Bluetooth DUN.

This is my primary device. The best PPC I have owned yet plus EVDO on Verizon is killer fast. I recommend this device to anyone that needs highspeed connection and a good phone. I added Intellidialer to make it perfect for me.

Yeah, its a good one no doubt. I recently switched from it to a 700w. I'll be posting my Pros/Cons list between it and the 700w tomorrow.
