Today, Cingular Wireless, Samsung and Microsoft unveiled the BlackJack (we knew so far as the Samsung SGH-i607), a robust, slim smart device packed with the power and functionality desired by business customers and consumers alike. With the BlackJack customers can get rich entertainment features, powerful business applications and the familiar look and feel of Windows Mobile 5.0, turbo-charged by Cingular's 3G-enabled BroadbandConnect service in an ultra-sleek design. This ultra thin, 3G device features a fully integrated QWERTY keyboard with a large high-resolution QVGA color screen.

Built to satisfy everyone from the music fan to the business user, BlackJack includes a bevy of cutting edge features:

  • MP3 player and access to Cingular Music, the most comprehensive music subscription service of its kind ever offered by a U.S. wireless carrier, including access to online subscription music content from Napster and Yahoo!
  • Cingular Video -- Cingular's on-demand streaming video service featuring exclusive content such as HBO
  • High speed internet browsing over Internet Explorer optimized for Cingular's 3G and EDGE networks
  • 1.3 megapixel digital camera with video capture capabilities
  • Stereo Bluetooth version 2.0 with stereo headset support
  • QWERTY keyboard for fast email and texting

In addition, the BlackJack provides users easy wireless access to business and personal email accounts through such solutions as Good Mobile Messaging, Microsoft Push Direct with Pocket Outlook and Cingular Xpress Mail. The BlackJack also offers over-the-air synchronization of calendar, contact and to-do lists, access to enterprise applications and superior music, photo and video capabilities. Unfortunately, Cingular's version lacks support for W-LAN which the European BlackJack version (the SGH-i600) is going to support.

Nevertheless, the stylish and compact BlackJack will be available exclusively from Cingular in the U.S. in mid-November for as low as US$ 199.99.
