Samsung to release Blackjack 2?

Samsung to release Blackjack 2?

Probably next week, here in the Philippines. I guess. We’ve been invited to a Samsung event this Wednesday so I’m thinking they’ll show us the new Blackjack by then. Reports in the US on the unit being available with AT&T revealed new features.

Samsung Blackjack 2

The new Samsung BlackJack II will be slimmer and gets more juice on the battery department.


– Windows Mobile 6
– HTML email support
– Office Mobile
– 2.4″ QVGA display
– Built-in GPS (!)
– Tri-band 3G UMTS/HSDPA & Quad-band EDGE/GPRS
– 2.0 MP camera
– over-the-air synchronization of contacts, calendar and task lists with Microsoft Exchange Server
– Support for Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008
– Stereo Bluetooth
– Windows Media Player Mobile 10
– WiFi

From the pictures above, there has been some usability changes — the thumb scroll wheel on the side is gone and now replaced with a jog-dial at the center.

More on this next week if and when it will actually be launched. :D See full specs of the old Blackjack here.

P.S.: Any other tech blogger interested to attend the Samsung event can leave a comment.

    Hello mr yuga, could you teach me how did you install opera mini in i600?

  5. yuga says:

    jan2x, using your i600, just go to, select Opera 8.0+ on WM5/6 and it will install itself directly into your phone.

  6. jan2x says:

    Thanks. Can’t seem to install opera mini on this device. bummer. And another bummer, it’s only 30 days trial.

    JGC, yes, the BJ2 is indeed in stores. There are some good deals running now actually if you are wanting to pick one up.

    One quick note, the BJ2 does not have wifi :( but everything else is on the device.

    I have some comparison pictures and a UI video here that will help compliment the summary above:
