For people who need power and performance wherever they roam, the Samsung SCH-i730 offers the answer. It's the ultimate business-class device for mobile professionals, plus it has a few groundbreaking entertainment features. A full color display slides down to reveal an integrated QWERTY keypad, while integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and EV-DO wireless broadband keep you on the cutting edge of connectivity. Powered by the Windows Mobile 2003 Pocket PC Phone 2nd Edition operating system and with support for corporate e-mail accounts, this device is designed for maximum efficiency, wherever you are.
The i730 follows the standard form factor of the latest Pocket PC devices, with one major addition: a sliding QWERTY keyboard is hidden below the screen. A generous, 240 x 320 full-color touch-screen display dominates the face of the unit. Just below the display is a five-way selection button that allows you to navigate and control the Windows Mobile interface. Meanwhile, shortcut buttons offer quick access to your Outlook calendar, contacts, messaging, Internet Explorer, and more. Alternatively, the device can be directly controlled with an included stylus that slides out of the rear of the i730's case.

Under the hood, the i730 sports a 520 MHz Intel Bulverde CPU with 64 MB of RAM and 128 MB of embedded flash memory storage. The unit's SD IO memory slot supports additional flash-based memory so you can expand available storage. The Windows Mobile operating system is completely touch-screen-enabled and features advanced handwriting recognition that is compatible with all of the device's applications. There's a standard stereo 2.5mm headset jack, and USB data and charging is handled by the i730's docking ports on the bottom of the device. To kick the i730's audio features up a notch, Samsung has also built a pair of 3D stereo speakers into the unit's case.

Calling Features
Many of the i730's calling features are integrated with the Windows Mobile operating system. For instance, the included Pocket Outlook software features a contacts list that is cleverly integrated with the phone's dialing functions. Meanwhile, the phone's handwriting recognition software can be used to dial numbers and enter contact information. Speaker-independent voice dialing is integrated, too, meaning the phone recognizes spoken contact names and quickly dials them. The i730's built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear, and polyphonic ringtones are available, as is a vibrating alert. Caller ID and call waiting are also supported. Lastly, the i730's Bluetooth connectivity makes it easy to sync the unit with a wide range of hands-free, wireless headsets and car kits.

Messaging, Internet, and Tools
The i730 is designed as a complete mobile office solution, so Internet and messaging capabilities are robust.

In addition to keeping track of contacts, Pocket Outlook features integrated calendar and e-mail functions. Microsoft's ActiveSync software keeps the device synced with all of your PC's Outlook information (via USB, infrared, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth connection). Users who want Internet connectivity on the road with their laptop or PDA can tap the i730's wireless modem capabilities (Verizon Broadband Access data plan charges apply). Verizon's next generation EV-DO broadband wireless network is compatible with the unit, meaning you can tap into blistering Internet speeds in areas where EV-DO coverage is provided (see below). Of course, if you're in a Wi-Fi hotspot, you can also fire up the i730's 802.11b connectivity and surf away at broadband speeds. Meanwhile, the unit fully supports basic text messaging, as well as multimedia messaging (MMS).

A generous toolset ships with the i730's Windows Mobile 2003 software. Pocket Outlook includes to-do lists, and pocket versions of Word and Excel are included so you can review and edit documents on the go. A calculator, alarm clock, and voice memo recorder round out the tools package.
