I wonder why Samsung skipped the WiFi capability. That’s gonna turn off *a lot* of people. It’s a bit on the slim side though, at 12.7mm. 

This model is somewhat similar to the LG Secret. Price and availability is TBA.

    Yep, it’s really disappointing and puzzling, they didn’t put in Wi-Fi capability on such a phone. What were they thinking?!

    awesome….. I like that

  11. Obed says:

    With regards to the keypads, its a lot better than Samsung Omnia, Omnia has a hard capacitive.. But you guys are right, what’s the use of this kind of touch phone if it doesn’t have a Wi-Fi connectivity…

  12. lexx says:

    my god, it’s totally a waste for wifi owners

  13. Ryan says:

    Omnia is much better than this. No wifi??? But i like this phone having a keypad underneath it and it’s not running on Windows if im not mistaken.. Looks promising. :)
