Officially announced back in October, AT&T Wireless now released the Samsung BlackJack II (aka Samsung SGH-i617), a sleek, smart and simple Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone which features quadband GSM/EDGE/GPRS, triband 3G UMTS/HSDPA at 850/1900/2100 MHz as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR. Furthermore, the BlackJack II features built-in GPS, a 2.0 megapixel camera with video-capture capabilities and 256 MB ROM / 128 MB RAM which can be increased using microSD memory cards up to 4 GB memory.

The powerful and performance-driven BlackJack II, which is now available in slick black and red wine color from early December, furthermore features a full QWERTY keyboard, large 2.4" QVGA color display and a front jog wheel to elevate productivity and improve the mobile experience:

The BlackJack II is available now exclusively from AT&T. With a 24 months contract and mail-in rebate, it costs US$ 149.99; without a contract it's available for US$ 399.99.
A release outside the U.S. is yet undetermined.

UPDATE: The Boy Genius Report got its hands on a brand new BlackJack II and has posted a couple of photos on its site. Compared to the original BlackJack the BlackJack II design isn't groundbreaking but the GSM and UMTS-band upgrade is worth the new device anyway.

Hi,  I dont seem to be a ble to start a new post.  but anyway the Samsung SGH-i640 went on sale in UK form Vodafone on 30/11/07.  Frustratingly no WiFi or GPS although it looks like it is just disabled in software at the moment.  Also no Cardwheel homescreen option (only Voda option).  The voda homescreen is OK but I still think you cant beat cardwheel.  It also seems quioker than SGH-i600 for everyting except Slingbox which takes an age to get started.
