    Samsung SCH I830 Launch/Info/Reviews..............................

    Well here you go, for those of you who have been waiting for this device. It is expected to launch on the 10th of January for B2B and the 24th for Retail. This is basically an I730 minus the WIFI capability but with the GSM for International Roaming. Oh boy this is an expensive device. That's all I have to say about that.

    Description

    Go Global! The Samsung SCH-i830 Global PDA is definitely not for the technologically impaired. This global powerhouse is designed for business focused technology pros who want productivity-enhancing features like Wireless Sync email or Exchange Activesync. It is the PDA that offers the ultimate in speed, convenience, and sound -- internationally.

    Nice VZW Employee strikes again

    Also No WM5 and will have to wait for it.
    No WiFi which was expected i think.

    Might be suitable for some people.

    This is a conspiracy of epic proportions. As of now there are announced dates for the release of 3 new smartphones for January and no news on the Q. Sorry for the side track . . . let the i830 parade continue.

    Once WM5 is released for the i830 it will be a killer device for those who frequently travel overseas.

    No, it will come with a only one and you'll be able to plug in different adapters to the end of it to fit whatever country you're in. There won't be a full blown adapter with cord for every country. It's most likely just going to come with changeable "heads" for lack of a better term.

    The only (key) difference is the GSM radio (for non-US, GSM networks only) replaces the wi-fi radio. The memory is the same.

    Will we be able to unlock this phone to use it on overseas providers? Does it even have a SIM card ?
