Samsung Blackjack vs RIM Blackberry 8800

CNET’s review team did a prizefight review of the Samsung Blackjack vs the RIM Blackberry 8800…

As a spoiler – the Blackjack won!

To quote CNET – Ouch. The RIM BlackBerry 8800 almost took out the Samsung BlackJack in the first two rounds, but it really didn’t have a chance. With its slim profile, a plethora of wireless and multimedia options, and solid call quality, the BlackJack simply overpowered the camera-less, 3G-deficient BlackBerry 8800. One can only hope that RIM comes back stronger with the rumored BlackBerry 8820. Until then, the BlackJack retains its crown.

    Can you get the Blackjack in the UK? I recall reading you managed to get your hands on one. I haven’t been able to pin one down either on a UK operator or via eBay.

    Rob see however note that the estimated days have been rescheduled many times over the last two months.

    Although a nice read I am suprised that battery life was not considered in the tests and unfortunatley the i600 does lose out in this area even though a second battery is supplied and large capacity batteries are available in the US
