We have read about Samsung SGH-i617 earlier this month and it looks like the SGH-i617 is the expected BlackJack II. However, according to rumors, the BlackJack II is again a North American version only (like the previously released SGH-i607/BlackJack, since unconfirmed radio specs are told to be GSM 850/1900 and WCDMA 850/1900 only which means this device is useless outside North America.

I'm looking for an upgrade to my i600 but the i620 is out of the scope since it lacks Wi-Fi! hmm

William G., you could also take a look at i640. According to rumours it should be like i620 but with a bigger screen, WiFi, possibly GPS and it should be out in a couple of months.
