The Samsung D807Â quad-band Cellular Phone is a another super-slim slider design with the latest technologies from Samsung. The D807 has almost the same exact feature list as the T809, and both are about the same size and very slim. Featuring a 1.3 megapixel camera,Â Bluetooth, support for EDGE high-speed data,Â a music player, and a microSD memory card slot, theÂ Samsung D807 is the perfect way to take advantage of all that Cingular service has to offer.
The D807’s sliding design hides the phone’s number pad under the display until you need to make a call. The big 176 x 220 display supports up to 262,000 colors — plenty of resolution and color depth for your videos and photos. A five-way center control button is positioned below the display, as are shortcut and selection keys. The phone’s 1.3 megapixel camera is housed behind the screen. There’s also a connector for a stereo 2.5 mm headset.
With 18 MB of internal memory, the D807 is designed to hold all the contacts, phone numbers and addresses you can throw at it. A call list remembers your most recent missed, received and dialed calls, and in addition to a vibrating alert, the D807 supports polyphonic ringtones and MP3-based music ringtones. You can also download additional MP3 music ringtones from Cingular’s MEdia Net service. A speakerphone lets you talk hands-free while you’re doing other things, and picture caller ID lets you assign a photo to specific callers. Similarly, a ringer ID lets you assign ringtones to callers. Speaker independent voice dialing makes it easy to speak the name of a contact and dial it instantly. And lastly, the phone’s Bluetooth connectivity means that your favorite Bluetooth headset is fully compatible.
Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The D807 has all the bases covered when it comes to messaging. Support is built in for sending and receiving text, video, graphics and sound via messages. When used in combination with the phone’s built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. Messaging clients for AOL, MSN, Yahoo!, and ICQ are included. Meanwhile, the phone’s email client lets you stay on top of your emails when you’re on the go.
Getting on the Internet is easy with the D807, too. It supports the GPRS protocol, as well as the high speed EDGE data protocol. When used with a Cingular data plan and the phone’s Bluetooth data capability, the phone can be used as a wireless modem for laptops and PDAs. There’s also a built-in browser for MEdia Net downloads and mobile Web browsing. Cingular’s MEdia Net service lets you receive and send emails, read news headlines, get weather updates, download games and ringtones, and more. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit– a plus for mobile text messaging users.
A number of handy productivity tools are bundled with the D807 including a voice memo recorder, an alarm clock, a calculator with unit and currency converters, a calendar, and a to-do list.
Imaging and Entertainment
The D807’s built-in 1.3 megapixel camera captures stills and video to the phone’s internal memory, or to an optional microSD memory card. The still camera features white balance and brightness controls, as well as a multi-shot mode and a self timer.
Into music? You’re in luck with the D807. Store your favorite MP3-based music on a memory card and listen whenever the feeling strikes you. And if you want to dress up the D807, picture effects, custom screensavers, backgrounds, and themes can be set to fit your personality.
Java support is built into the D807, making it a powerful gaming companion. Games are downloadable via the MEdia Net service.
