Hello My Fellow A T & T Wireless Avatars,

Today I trekked over to my local corporate A T & T Wireless store to take a look at the direct successor to the Samsung Blackjack II SGH-i617 Smartphone, the Samsung Jack SGH-i637.  Running Windows Mobile 6.1 but slated to be upgradable to the soon-to-be-released Windows Mobile 6.5, the Samsung Jack is a non-touch-screen device. 

At the bottom of this post, along with a link to the official Samsung Jack page, you will also find a review of the Jack by InfoSync Review.

The following is my personal impression on this, the latest incarnation of Samsung-sweetened Windows Mobile wireless wizardry. 

1.
The primary hardware difference between the BJ2 and Jack is that the Jack, along with a Bluetooth and internal GPS radio, is equipped with a Wi-Fi receiver, as well.  The jack also offers a 3 mega pixel camera.

2.
The Jack is significantly faster than the BJ2 particularly in regard to video rendering.  I’m telling you, when you scroll through photos, this thing is smoother than smooth and the display is brighter than bright.

3.
Unlike the BJ2, the Jack no longer sports a JOG Wheel (for clockwise/counterclockwise navigation).  Instead it has a more traditional non-optical 5-way navigation control. 

4.
Samsung has improved the overall hardware quality of the Jack in comparison to the BJ2.  In fact, to my supreme delight, the Jack feels as solid as my beloved Samsung Epix SGH-i907 touch-screen Smartphone.  The full QWERTY keyboard, like the Epix, is well designed and allows for tireless texting to those in the “know”. 

5.
While newcomers to the Windows Mobile Samsung product line may be somewhat disappointed that the Jack does not offer a standard audio port for wired headphone connection, those of us who have spent proverbial millions on Samsung accessories are oh so happy that the Jack will accept all accessories designed for the Blackjack 2.

6.
Lengthwise, the Jack is somewhat shorter than the BJ2 and I think a little thinner as well.  It is definitely smaller than the Epix. 

In conclusion, I like this phone and I applaud Samsung for continuing the tradition of delivering high quality, well made, Windows Mobile wireless technology for the A T & T Wireless network.

I strongly recommend the Samsung Jack SGH-i637 for anyone who wants to ride the ever waxing wave of Windows Mobile wireless wonder.

So go ahead and let Samsung “Jack You Up’!

Most Sincerely,
