PC World: Hands-On With the Samsung Mondi

Updated on 23 July 2009 by

mondi_rightMy first impressions from this review are ‘oh crap.’ The most important element (in my mind) has turned out to be sub-par. The keyboard.  “…as I started tapping away an e-mail, I was immediately disappointed; the keys are too flushed into the phone’s hardware, making them difficult to press.”

A few more thoughts:

Does it really do voice?

Just what does this mean: “The WiMax connectivity made browsing the Web, fortunately, a zippy experience… pages like ESPN.com or CNN.com load correctly—a pleasure compared with other popular phones, including Apple’s iPhone 3GS

The subsidised price is a crime. Just $100 off ($350) for a 2 year lock-in? Are U.S. customers worth so little? [Info from sidecutreports]

There are lots more questions outstanding and I look forward to detailed reviews that cover battery life, screen brightness, web browsing speed, camera quality and more.
