>> Hi I'm Bonnie Cha. I'm your Editor at CNET.com and today we're taking a First Look at the Samsung SCH-i760. This is for Verizon Wireless and they finally have an updated Smartphone for their lineup and it's a good one. In terms of design it's pretty bulky but there's a reason. You slide it up and you get this full QUERTY keyboard here. I found them pretty easy to use; the buttons are a little bit slippery but there's enough spacing in between so it's good for composing messages, and what's also cool is you get an external dial pad which I haven't seen on too many devices, so you can easily dial numbers although you can call up the onscreen dial pad as well, so obviously it has a touch screen so that's nice as well. On the back you've got a 1.3 megapixel camera and it was actually producing some really nice quality photos. In fact you've got Windows mobile 6 Professional Edition so you get the full Office suite, as well as e-mail capabilities and it's got all the wireless you need. It's got E-video, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi so you're pretty much set there. The only thing missing is GPS. Overall a really fast device and call quality was decent. Like I said it's a great device for Verizon Wireless, probably best for our business users. It's available now for about 350 dollars so it's a little bit pricey but if you need a demanding device this is a good Smartphone to get. I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been the Samsung SCH-i760. ^M00:01:22 [ Music ] ^M00:01:26
The Verizon Wireless XV6800 comes with most everything a power business user will need from a smartphone, but its less-than-stellar call quality gives the Samsung SCH-i760 the slight edge.
For Verizon's globetrotting customers, the Samsung Saga offers a sleek messaging smartphone with world-roaming capabilities and solid performance, all for an affordable price.
The Motorola V600 has enough business-centric features and style options to satisfy the needs of most pros on the road.
In addition to the HTC Touch Diamond, Sprint introduced the HTC Touch Pro at CTIA Fall 2008. The business-centric smartphone offers tons of features in a sleek package.
At CES 2007, we take a look at the Samsung SCH-i760, a smart phone with a 1.3-megapixel camera, an MP3 player, and a 2.8-inch screen that slides out into a QWERTY keyboard.
For Verizon's business customers who need more than just a messaging smartphone, the HTC Touch Pro2 delivers with more robust productivity toolsand good performance.»
The Samsung Delve is an attractive, feature-rich phone with good performance. It lacks some important features, but it's a solid addition to Alltel's lineup.
For young professionals who have outgrown their cell phones but aren't quite ready for a business-centric device, the T-Mobile Shadow offers a nice compromise.
Though you sacrifice some higher-end features, the Samsung Conquer 4G gives Sprint customers a solid 4G smartphone at an affordable price.
Samsung SCH-i760 (Verizon Wireless) Review
The good: The Samsung SCH-i760 features a slider design with a full QWERTY keyboard, external dialpad, and touch screen. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone also offers good performance and has integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EV-DO; a 1.3-megapixel camera; and real-time e-mail delivery.
The bad: The i760 is bulky, and we wish there was a built-in scroll wheel. There's no support for Verizon's V Cast services, and it lacks Windows Live integration.
The bottom line: The Samsung SCH-i760 goes big (literally), delivering a solid set of features and good performance to Verizon customers looking for a business-centric smartphone.
