Samsung’s Katalyst (SGH-T739) packs a solid suite of features into yet another sharp slider.
Featuring WiFi, a 1.3 megapixel camera, MP3 player (AAC/AAC+), and up to 2GB of additional memory, the Katalyst is the big brother to the SCH-r610.
When closed, the Katalyst boasts a simple and familiar key arrangement, including a D-pad in the center and large “send” and “end” keys. The large LCD screen is crisp and, while sturdy and easy to hold, the Katalyst weighs in at only 4.1 ounces.
Like the SCH-r610, the Katalyst should appeal to folks who want more from their phone but who don’t yet want to move completely into the smartphone category. With the Katalyst you can record video up to the 2GB capacity of external memory, leave voice messages, play music, surf the web and of course make calls. It comes with 5MB of built-in flash memory.
The Katalyst has a respectable 5 hours of talk time and an impressive 240 hours of standby time.
One small criticism about these latest Samsung sliders: the microSD slot is located beneath the battery. This makes accessing your memory card a bit of a hassle, however it does provide a USB port, so once your card is loaded it is an easy matter to transfer items to your computer.
Samsung’s history of making esthetically pleasing, comfortably compact cell phones continues with the Katalyst.
