Wall Street Journal Review: Samsung Blackjack Beats Out Treo 750
Walt Mossberg is one of the icons of “Personal Technology”. I look forward to his column in the Wall Street Journal. And boy, did I like his recent head-to-head review of the Samsung Blackjack vs. Treo 750.
There’s a bunch of advantages that Mossberg points out in his All Things Digital column reviewing the Samsung Blackjack and Treo 750, both on AT&T Wireless (formerly Cingular):
- The Blackjack is 35% lighter than the Treo
- The Blackjack is 36% smaller
- It runs on a faster data network than the Treo 750
- 38% better battery life
- Full keyboard
- The Blackjack is much cheaper (actually it’s now free) than the $399 Treo
He’s eager to see the highly anticipated iPhone, but clearly says that the Samsung Blackjack is the way to go. But for now, “Of these two phones, I prefer the BlackJack.” from his concluding paragraph sums it all up.
