Samsung's Jack

Samsung has recently released its latest smartphone – Jack – a third revamp of the original Blackjack. The Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone is now available exclusively to AT&T customers in the US and powered by the nation’s fastest 3G network. The handset is a sleek combination between a business and smartphone. It has a 3.2 MP camera, Wi-Fi, 256 RAM, GPS and a beveled qwerty keyboard. It comes with Windows 6.1 that can be upgraded to the upcoming 6.5. The phone, like its predecessors is a message-centric handset and so the specially designed keyboard should help it maintain that status. The screen is slightly small for the standard we’re come to expect out of smart phones — it’s only 2.4 inches. Still, this series of phones is the largest selling of all Windows mobile phones. The phone features Microsoft Direct Push for enterprise and small business users, while AT&T Xpress Mail offers access to most major personal email accounts. The Jack also features over-the-air synchronization of contacts, calendars and task lists with Microsoft Exchange Server or Xpress Mail.

In terms of entertainment, it has various music and video options. For music, you have AT&T Mobile Music service — an on-the-go music service that delivers access to a collection of music content, including access to XM Radio Mobile and more. For video, the phone comes with Windows Media Player 10 Mobile and a microSD slot that can take up to 16 GB, so you can carry a lot of stuff with you. Besides, AT&T’s Cellular Video service gives viewers access to thousands of video clips on categories such as news, sports, weather and entertainment via streaming video.
