Samsung's New Jack SGH-i637
The BlackJack II has been changed and perfected to produce Samsung’s new Jack SGH-i637. With the many useful updates and the reasonable price, the Jack certainly looks like an interesting new phone to consider.
The Jack has a very similar look to the Blackberry Bold or the Blackberry Curve 8900. It features a metallic charcoal gray paint and thick chrome band around the edges. The Jack measures 4.4 x 2.4 x 0.5 inches (HWD) and weighs only 3.6 ounces.
It includes a roomy, four-rowed QWERTY keyboard with the perfect amount of click and resistance. The Jack also has a 2.4-inch , 320 x 240 pixel LCD screen. Although the it does not have a touch-screen, the five-way control pad is touch-sensitive.
The Jack has a 528-Mhz processor, 256MB ROM, 175MB RAM, and 141MB RAM free for programs. It also features a built-in GPS chip that is capable of supporting AT&T’s TeleNav-powered Navigator. The music player on the Jack supports WMA, MP3, and AAC files, and the smartphone includes a 3.2-megapixel camera.
For just $99.99 (plus a two-year service contract), the Samsung Jack can be yours. It’s a great value for the fantastic features it includes. No, its not the iPhone3G S or Nokia E71x, but those phones will cost you a lot more. The Jack is a smart, practical, reasonable smartphone that can take care of most average people’s needs.
