Samsung i780 unboxed

Until the launch of the HTC TyTN II back in September 2007, my phone of choice was the Samsung i600. I liked the integrated keyboard and slim form factor but the one thing missing was built in GPS.

However, Samsung recently released the i780 which looks like an updated version of the i600 but has built in GPS!

In reality the Samsung i780 is an all-new device. First of all it uses WM6 professional, so there is an integrated 320×320 pixel touchscreen. The CPU clocks at 624MHz and there’s 256MB ROM and 128MB RAM. The i780 also has a new “optical joystick” for navigating through the OS.

So can the Samsung i780 turn me away from my TyTN II? I’ll discuss this and all the new features in the review which will be here soon. For now though, here is our unbox video:
