Samsung Jet S8000

 samsung-jet

Devices with awesome multimedia capabilities have been all the rage in the mobile world lately. Samsung has taken over the competition with their blitzkrieg introduction of the OMNIA HD i8910i. Now the manufacturer needs to put a more affordable device on the table, since not everyone is willing to shell out an amount equal to the gross military spending of a small European democracy over such a thing as cell phone, even if this happens to be the ultimate move to watch the next Miss Universe contest with stunning quality. This is exactly the market niche Samsung is targeting with the Samsung Jet S8000, initially known as the Cubic. It comes with new version of the TouchWiz interface that is all about a 3D cube that, truth be told, brings the LG ARENA KM900 to mind the second you see it. Although it is not a smartphone, Samsung touts it to be smarter than one, with multitasking, Microsoft Exchange support and a fast 800MHz processor.Let´s go over its design and overall look first.
