In this preview we are going to introduce the Samsung Jet S8000 to you. It sports a 3.1-inch AMOLED display with WVGA resolution, 5-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and DivX/Xvid support. In other words, it’s a really promising multimedia device…

maybe it's just me, but I didn't notice any mention of the radio on this (GSM, CDMA, etc.). any word on any potential carriers?

In the beginning of the preview "This is a European GSM phone. It can be used with AT&T and T-Mobile USA but without 3G"

The 5MP pictures look great. I would buy the camera for that alone.

so this is a proprietary OS ? no S60 5th edition? can't install any software on it, I guess... meh, looks better than 5800, but I guess if you want flexibility and navigation, this won't do the trick

After using the Samsung Jet for one month, here is exactly what I get: THE GOOD: very good screen resolution and colors, but only in the shade. THE BAD: extremely weak battery life. Half a day in average usage. The phone EATS the battery in a very high rate. Screen not visible in sunshine. Phone restarts by its self, this happens during using its menus. I have tried 2 phones same result. Touch screen is not sensitive and phonebook freezes in the first 2 or 3 touch trials then responds easy. Very annoying. (don’t even think of comparison with iphone). Extremely weak GPS, almost useless. Also you have to pay to use Route 66 GPS navigator. No light color theme, all very are in dark background. Browser does not re-arrange pages after enlarging. Very difficult to read pages after enlarging. I did not succeed in opening a single flash file. Power point files are not supported. Body is very slippery it will fall from your hand for sure (someday). The NEW PCSTUDIO will not be installed on your computer if you are using Win7. A Final word, this phone is not reliable, too much advertisement but reality is totally different.

When will phone arena people learn to write some honest down to earth reviews like the one from mob? I mean it's nice of them to introduce to us the features of the phone but they should cover a little bit about the real life behavior of the phone also.

Simply, a piece of junk, without any support from Samsung. I baught it from "Union Group" company in Egypt as authorized agent for Samsung. The phone screen stops working completely in addition to all buttons, i have to take off the battery and put it in again to restart the phone. I sent it for maintenance 4 times (4 TIMES!!!), and everytime they say they changed a part inside the phone, but in vain. They refuse to give me another phone and they actually lied!!! I sent an email to Samsung for help but as expected i received no reply because i know this phone is a failure and they would not support it.
