Samsung is touting the new Jet as “smarter than a smartphone”. Not sure how they measure “smartness”, but the claim probably stems from the beefy 800MHz processor powering the phone. However, opting for Samsung’s own TouchWiz 2.0 platform instead of a traditional smartphone operating system means the phone is more likely to fill a niche between feature phones and smartphones.
The Jet is packed with a laundry list of features including 5.0 Megapixel AF camera, A-GPS, D1 video 30fps recording, DNSe and SRS WOW Sound Effect technology, Bluetooth v2.1, microUSB and Wi-Fi. But the first thing you’ll notice when laying eyes on the phone is the beautiful 800x480 Active Matrix OLED (AMOLED) 3.1” touch screen display, which boasts a resolution four times higher than a WQVGA screen and allows the Jet to consume 40% less power than a mobile phone equipped with a TFT-LCD display.
