Exclusive Samsung U940 Images and Screenshots!
posted by Nanko R. / Nov 15, 2007, 4:27 PM
Currently, we can confirm that the camera is only 2 Megapixels, unlike the GSM version which offers 3. Unfortunately, the wide-screen is the same as on the F700, which means is reacts to touch only by finger and not other objects. In our testing of the GSM version, this type of display is way worse than the regular touch ones.
The QWERTY on the Samsung SCH-U940 is arranged in three rows instead of in four, just as the version we say during the 3GSM 2007 expo in February, but still not quite the same. Like it, there are no stereo speakers on the front face, unlike the final F700.
Of course as always, we will update you with the latest available information as soon as we have it!
Yea it has touch screen just like the voyager does, the only thing i dont like about this phone is the way the top slides up to reveal the qwerty keypad i'd rather it open up like the voyager. they seem more or less the same tho i doubt if this phone would be much of a big difference from the voyager

There will be no data plan manadatory, this is just one of the dumbphones, just like a enV or voyager #5 the reason they got this with a slide up is there is a rather large portion of the cusotmer base who doesn;t like the fact that the enV flips open and want a slide up qwerty pad I know I would do this over the voyager #8 quit being a cheap bitch, the i760 does everything you just described, you want to be a cheap bitch and not pay for the data plan, be my guest.

Please tone it down, angry man. The i760 is a Windows Mobile device, which many people (myself included) refuse to purchase on principle alone. There's no reason to be offensive, there are plenty of people who are looking for a phone that doubles as a good mutimedia device, without necessarily investing in a smartphone... this product and the Voyager both fill that bill well as far as I can tell.

ok, gps--on all cell phones but not in the capacity you would like to use probably--all cell phones are required to have gps for emergency purposes only, that is the only requirement and the only reason it is mandatory. If you are looking for a location based service and using the term gps we have something to help you in that capacity as well. As for smartphone/pda/"normal" phones, they all have different functions that make them different, hence the classifications, so look up what makes a phone a smartphone first, and all you jumping on people, how bout we help them learn before we beat them down over being ignorant in the sence of not knowing--and the Voyager sold out before 10 am PST--iphone what??

I think what everybody means by "GPS" is VZW's VZ Navigator service. Technically, like it's already been mentioned, all cell phones are GPS ( E911 and Location On ) capable. The u940 is NOT a smartphone ... just a regular phone with lots of capabilities ( like the Voyager ). Since it's in that category, I'm pretty sure VZ Navigator will run on it. Every Verizon camera phone ( except the Samsung u340 ) has VZ Navigator capabilities. Right now, the only "smartphone" that has VZ Navigator is the Blackberry Pearl... but they others will follow suit real soon.

Is this phone going to be as chunky as the voyager??? casue it looks to be maybe thicker. hope not... i thought if anything they would try to make slimmer touch phones. the thing about the voyager is that it starts to curve down around the edges to make it look slimmer but in the picture above this phone looks FAT! i really would rather have the slide out QWERTY rather than it flip like the voyager but my biggest problem is the size of these touch phones verizon is putting on the market. I mean what happened... who cares if verizon had disageements with apple on the iphone sales work it out they should have never passed that deal up.... another thing why is verizon letting these European countries get the cool new slim touch phones... the prada..... the armani......the viewty... and plenty more! its not like im going to switch networks casue they dont release the phone i want but what is nost important is the service they provide! THE BEST EVER!

Is anyone other that myself wondering why the phone didn't go into landscape mode once the keyboard was slid out? Maybe it's a pre-production bug, I'm over reacting I guess. I may fork over the full retail for this handset if it proves to be as good as the Voyager (to have it as my back-up phone).

the u940 will probably work like the voyager.......in the way that you can have the voyager as a "DUMB" phone, or have the option of having it a smartphone. Well the FCC approved the phone in Dec. 2007 and they are not allowed to release information about the phone for 180 days.... now i take that as the phone wont be released untill that date or after.(June,10th)

Yeah. I'm in a phone crisis. I was going to hold out for the Curve, but that looks like it'll never happen. So then I got into the voyager for its multi-media capabilities. But let's face it: the voyager is girly and not too flashy. This phone however, is definitely flashy and worthy. I am reall curious to know if it has mobile TV, because if it doesnt ill settle with the voyager. If it does, then ill keep waiting until whenever it comes out...because look at it. Its beautiful. Sure, the keyboard may be more tight, but its awesome.
