Samsung Jet
Samsung has announced a new consumer smartphone, and is already claiming its Jet handset is better than the iPhone

Smarter than a smartphone and better than the iPhone – that's the billing given to the Samsung Jet. And the hype emanating from the Samsung camp doesn't stop there...

The Samsung Jet uses a 3.1in wide Active Organic Light Emitting Diode (AMOLED) screen, which Samsung claims allows for colours so bright that they're 'better than life-like'.

Off-axis viewing is said to be improved, too, while they're also less power hungry than TFT LCD rivals, and the resolution is four times higher than the WQVGA.

Doing the donkey work is an 800MHz processor. This should allow for fast response times and high-speed access to all the various functions. Again, it should also help extend the battery life.

More after the break

Navigating the machine is done using a 3D touch, TouchWiz 2.0 interface, and there's a one-touch zoom function on board the handset, too.

Widgets are all the rage in the TV world at the market and the Samsung Jet joins in the fun with downloadable widgets giving you access to various applications focusing for now on the usual selection of news, weather and finance.

Other features include a 5 megapixel camera, built-in GPS, DNSe & SRS Sound Effect technology, and DivX and XviD video support for downloading and viewing.

We've no information on release date or pricing for the Samsung Jet as yet.
