Mossberg takes on the Samsung i730

 

It's been a full eight months since we first spotted this bad boy at a press event last year, but today Verizon finally started selling Samsung's new i730 Pocket PC Phone, at least to business customers. Mr. Mossberg scored the first "official" review,...

Samsung SCH-i730 (Verizon Wireless) review

 

Samsung SCH-i730 (Verizon) The Samsung SCH-i730 for Verizon Wireless manages a pretty impressive feat: It shrinks a Windows Mobile-based smart phone into a form factor that actually fits comfortably in your pants pocket and includes broadband wireless,...

Five-way wireless support (IrDA, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, CDMA 1xRTT, and EV-DO); speakerphone; comfortable slide-out QWERTY thumb keyboard; two batteries included; excellent third-party software support.

No support for modem use with a laptop; Wi-Fi and phone can't work simultaneously; Wi-Fi is a battery hog; no camera in initial Verizon release.

Small, light, and powerful, the Samsung SCH-i730's high-speed data support and built-in Bluetooth and Wi-Fi make it an excellent choice for those who have to stay connected at all times, though the crippled Bluetooth support may spoil the party for...

Speakerphone sound problems. So-so battery life. Expensive data plan. ; See the Samsung i730 in Action ; !

The most powerful cellular device available, as long as you can recharge it daily.

Samsung SCH-i730

 

The most powerful thing you can hold in your hand short of a pocket nuke, the Samsung i730 PDA/phone is small, blazingly fast, but guzzles battery power.

Samsung SCH-i730 Cell Phone Review

 

The Samsung SCH-i730 is a PDA phone with unique features including five ways to wirelessly connect and a clever thumb QWERTY keyboard. There are other convenient features on this PDA as well which will help make the modern technological parts of your...

This is a great item to own if you have a lot of things to do on the road. The SCH-i730 can accomplish almost anything you could wish a wireless device to. You can almost always be connected wirelessly (just watch out for the battery life), and on top...

Samsung's Flyweight Contender

 

This Windows-based mobile phone takes advantage of high-speed wireless connections to pack in a host of extra features.

The Samsung SCH i730 ($399.99 with two-year Verizon Wireless service contract)is perhaps the slickest of the new smart phones running Windows Mobile 5.0. It's basically a micro PC, complete with two kinds of high-speed Internet access and a slide-out...

Review: Samsung SCH-i730 – A Loaded, Flawed Smartphone

 

Well, there's Windows Mobile 2003, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, EV-DO cellular broadband, CDMA, 1xRTT, and IrDA. The front cover slides up to reveal a thumb-operated QWERTY keyboard, or you can use the stylus to input on the screen

We recommend that you always have the spare battery charged and standing by, since the phone doesn't last long on the regular battery. Officially, the handset lasts for 2.2 hours of talk time or 5.4 hours of standby time, but that flies by

Samsung SCH-i730 Review

 

Samsung's SCH-i730 is Samsung's current entry into the PDA/Phone category. What sets this model apart from its Windows Mobile/Palm competitors? EVDO data capability, for one. The i730 also features a slider-type design that reveals a QWERTY keyboard....

Note that these are theoretical speeds. In real life, both speed and performance typically vary greatly from these advertised speeds. In the Atlanta area, I have used all four types of service, and find EVDO to be the only solution that comes close to...
