SO TRUE MANIf there was never an iPhone, there wouldn't be this phone.
The iPhone still has one more upcoming to win...I think this would be my next choice for a phone, but only if i couldnt have the iPhone. I only say this, because this is the closet thing to the iPhone that i have seen. The physical body of it is appealing enough to me, the software isn't amazing like Mac OS X iPhone, but its a lot better than most cell phones I have seen. Its funny though because it has quite a few of the same faults as the iPhone (and then some) like the lack of a good camera quality, and camera features other than video. I would never choose this thing over the iPhone though.
Same here, a friend of mine just got it and it wasn't all that bad. I don't have an iPhone yet but have played with both a little bit. I would say Sprint is going to take some market share with their very competitive pricing plans. At&t is basically dropping the phone price but recovering the cost within your 2 year contract. I thought I was going to save about $30 switching from Verizon but it appears it may cost me about $10 more with At&t's ridiculous text plans.my friend just got the instinct and it was actually better than I thought. I used it for about 5 mins and it responded to every touch input. Though I did dislike the vibration.
don't forget the super-slick design of the iPhone over the plastic blocky InstinctIf I had never used/owned an iPhone, this phone would seem incredible to me, and I would want one badly. However, since I do own an iPhone, it seems a little clunky. iPhone's strongest draw, at least for me, is it's wonderful browser, and it's super-slick interface. It's just so hard for other companies out there to develop anything that doesn't seem clunky in contrast.
I seen that. Look in page 45. I'm thinking of getting that garmin nuvi 260wCheck your Best Buy ad today. They're selling the Samsung Instinct for $49.99 after a $50 instant rebate. They're practically GIVING them away!
