Samsung Jet is a multimedia touch screen phone based on their Touchwiz v2.0 OS. It is based on Qualcomm MSM6246 , 800 Mhz processor., which is configured such that it can be operated by figures. (which means No Styl;us is provided)
Looks & Aesthetics :
Well it is having 3.1 ” AMOLED display & pixel packed 480 x 800 resolution which is quite bigger, having a black holographic panel & designed such that, it can be well fitted in your palms & pocket.
Interface of Samsung Jet:
Like all Touchwiz phones, it is having three home screen, & drag & drop feature for handful of widgets that are embedded within the sidebar. The touch experience igives vibrant & instant reposne to fingures, which makes it the best quality touch screen experience.
The Full QWERTY keyboard is only provided in landscape mode, which is not comfortable with some people (not all), because there are restrictions due to screen size. Widgets like world clock, calender,Facebook are pre installed.
Its is having Java MIDP installed but does not allow to install third party java application in it. Which forces you to buy apps from there store, which is not availabale as much you wated it. (Wallpapers, games are there, which are not apps)
Other true thing is apps like Google Maps, search, Gmail, Facebook etc., are already provided and many of you wont need more than that. So its kind of OK.
Good News !!! – You can unlock phone using plenty of tricks out there on internet, & install other java applications also.
