20070208130714890_1.jpg Samsung announced its latest addition to their Ultra line of phones with the Ultra Smart F700. Or as we like to call it, the only phone we’ve seen with the potential to be the iPhone killer. The phone will be displayed at the 3GSM World Congress.

The F700 has a pretty looking touchscreen, which happens to be very iPhone-esque. Samsung goes one step ahead of Apple in this case and adds in a QWERTY keyboard. Accessible after the touch screen slides out of place.

The F700 isn’t only a pretty face, but has the features to back it up. VibeTonz technology adds a vibration to every button so users can tell where their hands are. The F700 also delivers a “drag and drop” like interface on the touchscreen, meaning easier navigation and control for us users.

From AVING:

The Ultra Smart reflects the latest speed of 7.2 Mbps under the High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) network.

A full HTML browser along with the QWERTY key pad enables easy access to the internet for e-mail and data services.

The device features 5 mega-pixel camera with auto focus and Bluetooth. With 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, it makes it easier to watch videos, listen to songs, share high-quality photos, or catch up on email on the move.

Can Samsung bring the iPhone down a peg? We shall see.

Looks pretty cool, and I particularly like the 5 MP camera vs. the iPhone’s 2 MP version — but for those of us seeking an all in one entertainment & communications device, what storage capacity and what video formats will it play? Any news on that yet?

Thanks for the update on this product!

“Samsung goes one step ahead of Apple in this case and adds in a QWERTY keyboard.”

Ahead? I would have said backwards, to be honest. Why have a keyboard when you can have a touch screen?

The keyboard on this phone looks like it will be faster to type on than JUST a touch screen. I love this samsung product. I just hope it is priced under $300 (doubt that).
