Release date?

WHEN IS THE RELEASE DATE ON THIS WONDERFUL SMARTPHONE?! I have been dying from my Nokia 3650, and not just from unreliability of the actual phone. I hate how it's so cheaply made...I've also been dying for a flip-phone. The Samsung SGH-D700 is the phone I'm meant to have!

Does anyone know if the D700 will get a speakerphone...?

I doubt that the D700 will ever appear. Its no longer on the Symbian phones page. However there were rumours that Samsung are developing a different Series 60 based device. Lets hope they are and they announce it soon possibly at CeBit?

Anyway the Panasonic X700 is very similar to what the D700 was meant to be anyway.

Dang Samsung! I love the brand and all, but please be smart and release the D700. I'm sorry, no matter what anyone says, the X700 is still inferior to the D700!

Well, guess what? It seems as though Samsung will still release the D700. One website is offering pre-orders and is saying the ETA Release Date is the 20th of March THIS YEAR. I hope this is a beacon of light for those who are dying for this phone as I am. The website is:

The SGH-D710 was just announced. Chances are that means the D700 is no more?

The SGH-D710 is a slide-style phone. Very annoying. I loved the flip & twist style of the D700.

:(

SGH-D710

Where did you find out about the D710? I looked on the actual Samsung website and they don't show a D710, much less a Symbian OS phone!

http://www.samsung.com/DigitAll/Glob.../01_cebit.htm#

The 2004 link pops-up an exhibition window. Go to Products, then Mobile Communications.

It doesn't list the D710. It does however list four other Samsung phones:

SGH-z105 (standard clam)
SGH-e800 (sliding camera shell -- the D710?)
SGH-p730 (swivel & flip camera clam)
SGH-i500 (swivel & flip clam Palm OS)
SGH-v4400 (swivel & flip camera clam CDMA)

You can download brocheres, but the links aren't active yet?

the Design Award Winners also lists:
SCH-X800
SPH-x9100

How can you be sure?

How can you be sure that the E800 is the replacement for the D700? I mean, it's a far cry from the D700 and the website states nothing about it being a Symbian OS phone...what makes you so sure?

I don't know if it's a replacement. I'm making the connection of:

d700 cancelled? -> d710 announced, and it's a slider phone -> e800 only slider phone at cebit.

I personally loved the design of the d700, so I'm by no means happy with the guesstimation.

Where did you hear of an announcement of the new D710 because personally, I haven't found anything on this mystery phone!
