Click to viewApple's iPhone may have been announced first, but Samsung's Ultra Smart F700 (announced yesterda) seems to be one-up Apple's effort in a few feature categories.
If you'll take a little journey with me, we'll compare the iPhone and the F700 and see which one comes out on top—on paper.
|Apple iPhone||Samsung F700|
|Screen Resolution||480x320 at 3.5-inches||440x240 at 2.78-inches|
|Touchscreen||Yes, With Multitouch||Yes, With Drag and Drop|
|Connectivity||Quad-Band GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900), EDGE, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0||Tri-band GSM, HSDPA, EDGE|
|Camera||2-megapixel||5-megapixel with Auto-Focus|
|Keyboard||Touchscreen/onscreen||Slide-out qwerty with VibeTonz|
|HTML Email||Unknkown (probably not HTML)|
|Browser||Full HTML Browser||Full HTML Browser|
|Codec Support||Standard iPod Support||MPEG4, H.263, H.264, Real MP3, AAC+, eAAC+, Real|
|Storage||4-8GB||Unknown onboard + microSD expansion|
So it seems like although Samsung's F700 has more megapixels, a little bit more format support, an actual keyboard, and 3G connectivity, the iPhone has it beat on screen size/resolution, HTML Email, storage, widgets, google maps, and push email. Plus, of course, the whole built-in iPod thing.
We're looking forward to seeing more of the Samsung F700 next week at 3GSM.
