Want to know just how many cool features Samsung can fit into a phone? The Samsung Jet S8000 has the answer-- if the technology exists, it's in this very sophisticated feature phone. Though it's not a smartphone, it comes as close as possible with a little help from Samsung's desktop syncing, MS Exchange ActiveSync and a full HTML web browser (Samsung's Dolphin browser).
The Jet is an import GSM quad band world phone with EDGE in the US and 3G overseas. It's sold unlocked and surprisingly it averages $450, despite the long list of features. These include:
AMOLED resistive touch screen woith haptic feedback TouchWiz 2.0 UI (now you can add widgets to TouchWiz) a second 3D user interface is on-board that works with touch and phone movement via accelerometer 800MHz CPU 2 gigs internal storage and it has a microSD card slot GPS WiFi Bluetooth DivX playback 5 megapixel autofocus camera than can shoot 720x480 video
