>> 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.
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.
The Motorola V600 has enough business-centric features and style options to satisfy the needs of most pros on the road.
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.
Though you sacrifice some higher-end features, the Samsung Conquer 4G gives Sprint customers a solid 4G smartphone at an affordable price.
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.
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.
