Exclusive: Video Unboxing of the Samsung SGH-i620 (aka: BlackJack Slider)

When the SGH-i620 first surfaced in May of this year, I was intrigued by the form factor and excited to try it out, because it seemed to be a variation of the BlackJack (and if you know me, you know I love my BlackJack). Though the unit is officially called the SGH-i620, it’s also known as the BlackJack slider because it looks like a shrunken BlackJack (that’s the SGH-i607) with a slide out keyboard.

So what’s different between the i607 and i620? In the next two weeks or so, we’ll cover the device in full via video reviews, but in summary: the i620 adds a faster processor (400MHz versus 201MHz), front-facing video camera, a 2MP camera on the rear, stereo speakers, and touch-sensitive keys on the front with a rotary wheel built into the D-Pad. Unfortunately, the device doesn’t have WiFi.

Lots more to come, and a big thanks to Negri Electronics for sending the device!
