2 more days and we would have hit the threshold with zero active Solo Mobile threads. Now I have to wait another month before calling Solo "as good as dead."
New touchscreen with full QWERTY keyboard for Solo.
Not the best phone but its also not that bad either, fast enough for a touch screen phone at a decent price for kids.
What you want:
* 2.6" full touch screen: Helping you stay in "touch."
* Full QWERTY keyboard: For high-speed texting, and more of it.
* 1.3 MP camera, supports up to 32 GB expandable memory: Capture the moment and send it.
* Samsung Entro
* 1000 mAh battery
* Travel adapter
* Quick reference guide
* Safety and warranty guide
$130 - No Contract
$50 - 2 Year
And No it is not EVDO or HSPA
Hahaha... If its true then I said it first in the bell forums under "bell's speculated response to chatr"
Just wonder, for those using the discount brands, do they get slower data and network speed? I've been using Solo and my 3G speed is only about 2.2Mbps. I heard that the Bell/Telus network is supposed to be pretty fast because of less congestion.
I know Bell is also releasing the Entro under the "dumbphone" list.
Can't seem to find any info on this phone on the usual phone info sites. Is the "Entro" name only used by Bell?
What is Samsung's official name for this phone?
The official name of the phone is SPH-m350 and Sprint is calling it the Samsung Seek.
They have the phone reviewed Samsung Seek at:
To me it looks like a basic text messaging phone with QWERTY and with touch screen capability.
In fact I can't think of any device that Bell's given their own unique name to. [edit: Samsung Double-Flip u740.]
US carriers frequently give their own branding onto devices, such as:
T-Mobile G1 vs. HTC Dream
T-Mobile MyTouch vs. HTC Magic
LG Cosmos on Verizon vs. LG Rumo[u]r on Sprint/Bell
So it could have easily been Sprint wanting to have a different name.
Other cases it's possible that the trademarked name is property of a carrier, and not Samsung. (Such as the LG enV 2 and LG env3 are trademarks of Verizon, so the devices were called LG Keybo when Telus started carrying it.
Canadian carriers wouldn't want to distance themselves from free marketing when people watching network TV are seeing ads for the LG Rumor, Palm Pre, LG Neon, and Motorola Backflip on primetime TV.
[2nd edit: Looking deeper about Entro/Seek specifically, Seek appears to be trademarked (most likely by Sprint) whereas the Entro isn't trademarked. (most likely Samsung's default name)
