Samsung Exec with US Cellular

Samsung has released a smartphone for the corporate sector. For executives looking for something besides the Blackberry line of smartphones, there is the Samsung Exec . Released by the carrier US Cellular, the Exec is a slim smartphone device which should provide consumers with fairly decent service for the price and better than previous models.

The Samsung Exec has a 2.4 inch QVGA screen display, measuring 320 x 240 pixels as well as a full QWERTY keyboard. It measures a slim 4.61 x 2.36 x 0.45 inches, weighing only 105 grams. In addition, the external memory can be expanded up to 32 GB. The smartphone device runs on the Standard Edition of Windows Mobile 6.5 using a Samsung WizPro UI. The device may not be running on the Windows Phone 7 but is satisfactory for its time. One of its major disadvantages however, is that it does not have Wi-Fi. Instead, the Exec has 3G EV-DO, GPS/A-GPS and Bluetooth.

The device has a meager 2 MP camera built-in which would not be missed by the corporate sector. Neither does it have flash. Although the megapixel level is much lower than that of other smartphone devices currently available, it can take sharp photos. It also has a camcorder with features such as white balance as well as a number of shooting modes. The Exec also has a default video player which can play files such as WMV, MPEG-4, H.263 and H.264.

Along with the device is 1500 mAh lithium ion battery which is able to run up to 8 hours when being used for calls. When on standby, the device can run on 18 days. The Samsung Exec can be purchased at a price of $99.95, after using a $70 rebate under a two year service contract with the US Cellular carrier company.
