late last year already,
Sprint has now
released it's version of the
Windows Mobile standard smartphone, the carrier calls the Samsung ACE.
The Samsung ACE is the sleekest world phone, featuring Windows Mobile 6 Standard
and offers the ability to use one device both in the U.S. and while traveling
outside of North America because the Samsung ACE supports both CDMA and GSM/GPRS
networks by plugging in a SIM card into the unlocked device. Within the U.S.,
where coverage is available, experience broadband–like download speeds using
Sprint's EV-DO network.
The Samsung ACE is a mix of the
2.5G GSM smartphone and the
3G smartphone. While the front looks pretty similar to the i320, the side and
backside looks like an i600/BlackJack:
The integrated QWERTY keyboard provides a familiar interface and allows for
quick and efficient input of information while the 1.3 megapixel camera allows
you to shoot digital pictures as well as recording video clips and play them on
the screen. The inbuilt memory can be extended using microSD memory cards.
While the Samsunce ACE doesn't features WiFi, it supports Bluetooth which can be
used with headsets, car-kits and other Bluetooth-compatible devices.
Last but not least, the Samsung ACE features a 2.3" QVGA TFT display and the
i600/BlackJack typical thumbwheel
for a more convenient one-hand navigation.
Without any rebates, Sprint's Samsung ACE is now available for US$ 449.99
which reduces to US$ 199.00 with all instant savings and rebates on a 2 year
