Here’s another set of pics between rivalry smartphones: the latest Samsung i900 (SGH-i900) and of course for a type of phone like this with a nice large touch screen that runs on Windows Mobile 6.1 what else is there better to do than to compare it with the iPhone!
The i900 has some interesting specs, though I still think Samsung smartphones tend to target the business trade rather than the vast general public, but maybe its just me. There are some features I find merits some mention though and this was mentioned over at Crave’s…
For the uninitiated, haptic feedback in a mobile phone is designed to make the feeling of pressing an onscreen virtual button more realistic. If you use your finger on the i900, it buzzes slightly to let you know it has registered that touch. This was very useful when we tried out the custom Samsung text input applications–making it almost like typing on a real keypad.
Ok, you might say some phones on the market now already have a similar feature and it may actually get to be quite annoying, all the buzzing once you’ve used it for long enough but what I like is that the i900 also has an optical sensor which acts as a mouse pointer, now that’s really cool…
…the i900 also has an optical sensor for a directional pad. This can be used in two modes–as a regular four-way directional pad or as an onscreen mouse pointer. Pressing on this optical sensor selects.
