Wireless review: Samsung SGH-T509

As published on infoSync World:
"OK, we’ll just come out and say it: we’re smitten with the T509. Here’s a phone that’s actually a bit weak on features: a so-so VGA camera, no media player, and no memory expansion. Compared to the music-centric but slightly thicker Motorola SLVR, the T509’s specs look a bit shaky. But this gorgeous wisp of a phone (the thinnest available in the U.S.) was irresistible. We found every excuse we could to take it out in public, just so we could watch friends and passersby drool. And its Bluetooth and EDGE support are nothing to sniff at. "

Wireless review: Kyocera Switch_Back

As published on infoSync World:
"No teen we know would turn down the compact, too-cool-for-school Switch_Back, and its solid thumbboard and impressive VGA camera certainly weigh in its favor. However, we can’t help but be disappointed by the phone’s lackluster messaging abilities, and its lack of conference calling is a key omission. If Virgin Mobile would support more IM clients and add three-way calling, we’d really have something here."

Wireless review: LG F9200

As published on infoSync World:
"LG takes a swipe at the growing teen messaging market with the F9200, a QWERTY phone designed for all things text: SMS, MMS, IM, e-mail, you name it. This sleeker version of last year’s F9100 also adds a VGA camera for on-the-go shutterbugs. Unfortunately, the F9200’s messaging prowess is marred by the cheap display and sub-par camera. Our bottom line? Not bad, but you can do better. "
