I thought that the touchscreen-equipped Samsung Epix was supposed to be the third phone in the Blackjack series, but I guess I was wrong. Here is the true Samsung BlackJack III, also known as the Samsung i637 Jack from AT&T.
And this is where I get slightly confused too. Over on Fido and Rogers in Canada, the Samsung BlackJack II was being marketed simply as the Samsung Jack. How is it, then, that the third phone in the trilogy can also be dubbed the Jack?
In any case, the Samsung i637 Jack gets a bit of a redesign over its predecessor, taking on a curvier approach reminiscent of the Motorola Q9h. Features include a full QWERTY keyboard, Windows Mobile 6.1, and high-speed 3G data connectivity.
Other specs include 256MB of RAM, Office Mobile, 3.2 megapixel camera, Windows Media Player, microSD slot good for up to 16GB of additional storage, XM Radio Mobile, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, aGPS, and AT&T Navigator.
Look for the Samsung Jack i637 to launch with AT&T on May 19th. They’ll want just $99.99 with a two-year contract and mail-in rebate.
