Samsung Jet S8000 Cubic Officially Unveiled

We’ve noticed that when Samsung rains, it pours. Today is one of those days that Samsung has chosen to come out with around a million handsets or so. Okay, not a million — but Samsung has just announced the fifth handset of the day.

This one is the Samsung Jet, aka S8000 Cubic. The Jet is being hailed by Samsung as “smarter than a smartphone.” So what does that mean?

Well, we are not exactly sure at the moment ourselves. But it seems that Samsung is now starting to proactively blur the line between its feature phone and smartphone lines, with the help of its own TouchWiz user interface.

By opening TouchWiz widgets to third party developers and allowing them to run on any (proprietary OS, Symbian, WM or Android based) Samsung phone they are creating another app plaform. And with sales volumes Samsung has for its touchscreen phones, it has a very good chance of succeding.

So, in addition to new UI,  what does the Jet offer, anyway? Quite a lot, it seems:

  • 800 MHz processor
  • Touchwiz UI 2.0
  • ActiveSync support
  • WiFi
  • 3.1″ 16M WVGA AMOLED display
  • 5 MP camera
  • GPS
  • Dolfin HTML web browser
  • DNSe & SRS Sound Effect technology
  • DivX and XviD video support

Lots of great features, and we have to assume that the Samsung Jet will be coming to the US in some way, shape or form (since it was reported on SamsungUSAnews). More on release details when we get them.
