Also not new for American readers but quite interesting for Europeans is the Samsung AT&T BlackJack II to what I got my hands on during last week's Möbius meeting. I'm still a big fan of the Samsung SGH-i600, the worldwide version of the original BlackJack (which is - for me - one of the best Windows Mobile Standard smartphones so far) and therefore I was really looking forward to get my 5 minutes with a BlackJack II. While it's still not confirmed if it will also be released outside the U.S., the SGH-i617 shows how an international version could possibly look.

The overall size hasn't changed much but the BlackJack II became thicker since it features the enhanced battery by default now (what makes absolutely sense since the slim BlackJack battery was definitely not good enough to power the BlackJack/i600) and also you don't have a thumb-wheel on the side anymore but a jog-wheel instead:

The 2 megapixel upgrade is an overdue enhancement from the original 1.3 megapixel camera. Unfortunately, and I'm sure it's AT&T's fault, like the original BlackJack also the BlackJack II lacks WiFi which hopefully will finds its way into an international version, if ever released.

Cheers ~ Arne
