The Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg weighs in with a review of the new Samsung i730 smartphone, which boasts the ability to surf the Web and e-mail functionality at broadband speeds. Basically, he likes the i730 because it delivers on its promises for making calls, accessing the Web, sending and receiving e-mails, playing music, and displaying pictures. However, he does point out drawbacks such as its size, low battery life, and having to use the stylus for most applications. Plus, the $599 price tag certainly can be a drawback by itself. On the whole, Mossberg gives it a fairly steady thumbs-up.
