Here's a little something for those of you taking the "I'll believe it when I see it" approach to Verizon's imminent release of the Samsung i600. Member thetruth has sent us copies of the scans he posted to Howard Forms (http://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php?s=&postid=1748454#post1748454).

Here's a scan of the information sheet that Verizon has created:

And the Samsung information sheet detailing the phone:

One thing that's news to me on this sheet is the voice recognition features. Voice activated phonebook and menu commands are a pretty common feature request. I'd say this falls in the good news category! :D

Cool! :D

David, do you have higher-res pics that you can link to from each of the "thumbnails"? Some of the print on the spec sheet is hard to read.

Because I am already a Verizon customer I'm probably more inclined to go with the Samsung phone.

However, if Verizon offered the new Motorla 200 phone, which is a better phone overall and what are the pluses and minuses of each?

Appreciate any insight. I am looking forward to these new devices but am concerned about the text input. While I want to move away from my pocket pc at least there are multiple text entry options. Text entry on a phone keybad is painful for me. The Treo 600 seems to be a nice solution with the keyboard but I'm not interested in using a palm device....

Very excited to see the device finally. I'll be one of the first in line. But eeesh! What an ugly looking phone!

I stopped by Verizon today and picked up a flyer. They didn't have an exact date yet, but they did expect it "very, very soon." :D

Wonder how much this will cost. Verizon's other "smartphones" aren't exactly cheap, the Kyocera 7135 is $500 and the Samsung SPH-i700 Pocket PC PE is $600....

That is cool, I dont have verizon, but I always think it is great when U.S. carriers get involved in what is going on more. I have cingular and wouldnt mind them doing the same. :wink:

Anybody who's seen or played with the i600 know what kind of holster it will come with?

The i600 makes a small first advertising splash in Time Magazine this week. Only a few pages in there is a full page i500 ad, with the i600 along with the i700 shown in the lower left hand corner.

I can't wait!! lol
