iPhone / Samsung F700 / Prada Phone Rumors Debunked

The following image has been circulating the internet for the past few days, resulting in mass hysteria due to the fact that Apple is currently suing the pants off of Samsung for infringing on their copyrights. This image appears to show that the Samsung F700 was first shown at CEBIT 2006 and released in February of 2007. What whoever made the image didn't take the time to do was check their facts and find that although Samsung may have spoken about advancing their cell phone plans previous to 2007, they only showed the F700 design for the first time February 8th, 2007.

Samsung F700 aka the Vodafone Croix Reviewed

Samsung F700 aka the Vodafone Croix Reviewed

Vincent Nguyen got his grubby little hands on another phone the rest of us will just have to dream about, Samsung F700 or the Vodafone Croix. We’ve written about this phone several times before eventually getting some hands on time at CeBIT a few months ago, but Vincent actually got one in for review.

Rumor: Samsung F700 “Croix” coming to US?

Rumor: Samsung F700 “Croix” coming to US?

Word on the streets is that we could see that amazing smartphone stateside sometime soon. The rumor states that Verizon might be the carrier of the “Croix” that the Jesus-Phone gets nailed to, that was a bad pun, I’m going to hell for that one.

Furthermore, the phone is supposed to be getting fitted with the necessary CDMA and EV-DO chipsets instead of the HSPA and GSM that it has now. Everything else, including the 3MP cam, touch interface, and sliding keyboard would stay.

SlashGear at CeBIT: Samsung F700 Hands-on

SlashGear at CeBIT: Samsung F700 Hands-on

The Samsung Ultra Smart F700 has been more than adequately covered on SlashGear and My iPhone. What’s been missing is our very own hands-on with the handset. Others have video coverage of the Ultra Smart F700, but none of them will show you what you’re about to watch. Gizmodo ran an article titled “Samsung F700 Video Tease: Look, But Don’t Touch.” You’ll see that this isn’t the case, because I’m all over it!

SlashGear Exclusive: Video hands-on with Samsung’s F700 iPhone-rival

SlashGear Exclusive: Video hands-on with Samsung’s F700 iPhone-rival

Last month Vodafone announced their agreementwith Samsung to sell the F700 smartphone under the unusual name "Croix", and at the time I lamented my lack of in-depth playtime with the handset.  Well, thanks to yesterday's Samsung event which SlashGear were invited to I had an opportunity to grab some footage of the HSDPA-toting, QWERTY-sliding F700; back in October I said it was "one of the strongest competitors to the iPhone", and that opinion has only got stronger.

Samsung brings out the big guns: F700 is Ultra Smart

Samsung brings out the big guns: F700 is Ultra Smart

Let's get it out of the way first: Samsung's brand spanking new Ultra Smart F700 looks a whole lot like an Apple iPhone with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard.  Right, okay.  But actually, whereas Apple seem to have concentrated on building a nice little ecosystem of OS and pre-installed software, Samsung have gone the extra mile when it comes to hardware. 

 

Let me reel it off to you until you get dizzy: 7.2 Mbps HSDPA, VibeTonz vibrating feedback, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, 2.78-inch 440x240 touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, microSD memory slot, front-mounted camera for video calls, Bluetooth and a Flash-based UI. 

Oodles of photos after the cut...

Samsung: Hey, doesn’t the iPhone 4 look a lot like our old MP3 players

Samsung: Hey, doesn’t the iPhone 4 look a lot like our old MP3 players

Samsung has ramped up its PR offensive in the aftermath of the $1bn Apple ruling, highlighting similarities between its media players and the iPhone 4 launched later on. There "is a lot of misunderstanding" about design inspiration, Samsung wrote on its official blog, and it intends to use "objective facts, one by one, to reveal the truth [and] resolve all the misunderstandings."

Samsung finds itself on the wrong end of the Apple trial with spilled evidence

Samsung finds itself on the wrong end of the Apple trial with spilled evidence

Earlier today it was revealed that evidence Samsung spilled to the press in their trial against Apple regarding supposed Sony pre-cursors to the iPhone was not supposed to be seen. Federal Judge Lucy Koh had previously blocked said evidence from the trial altogether, and both Apple and the judge have since earlier today come down on Samsung demanding an explanation for Samsung releasing documents to news outlets. Samsung is now on the hot-seat speaking on why they found transmitting these documents to the public "entirely consistent with this Court's statements" - these statements saying that, "workings of litigation must be open to public view."

Samsung infuriates Apple with iPhone evidence leak

Samsung infuriates Apple with iPhone evidence leak

Samsung has incurred the wrath of the judge in the Apple vs. Samsung case, after publicly releasing trial evidence it had been blocked from officially submitting to the ongoing patent battle. Pleading "fundamental fairness" as its justification, Samsung dropped a pair of presentations along with an official statement on the media, aiming to squash Apple's claims that the Samsung F700 was an iPhone copy. "The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design" the company said, in a move Apple described as "contemptible."
