You don’t know Jack, but you might want to get acquainted. Samsung’s third Windows Mobile smartphone for AT&T and the successor to the BlackJack and BlackJack II looks to be perfect for business and casual users alike looking to stand out from the Crackberry owning crowd.
Why drop the Black from the BlackJack name? You can thank RIM for that. It’s funny and ironic then that Samsung’s newest smartphone dropped the rough edges of its predecessors and now looks more like a BlackBerry Curve.
For the businesswoman on the move, the Jack features a full QWERTY keyboard, built in Wi-Fi and allows you to edit business documents using Microsoft Office Mobile, which includes mobile versions of Word, Excel, and Powerpoint. The phone also has support for multiple e-mail accounts. E-mails, contacts, calandars, and tasks are synced up using “over-the-air synchronization” via AT&Ts 3G network. If you’re traveling in a new city, the built in A-GPS will keep you from being late to that all important meeting.
Meanwhile, non business users (like myself) will probably be more interested in some of the Jack’s other features, including its 3.2 megapixel camera (with video capability), built in web-browser (hello Facebook Mobile!), SMS capability, and Windows Media Player 10 so you can listen to your music on the go. The Jack’s memory is expandable up to 4GB (via micro SD cards) for those with larger collections. Windows Live Messenger is a part of the package as well. You know that’s what that keyboard is really there for anyway, right?
The Jack is available now at select AT&T stores and online for a very recession friendly price of $99.99 after rebates on a two year contract.
