    Apple's iPhone may have been announced first, but Samsung's Ultra Smart F700 (announced yesterday) seems to be one-up Apple's effort in a few feature categories.

    If you'll take a little journey with me, we'll compare the iPhone and the F700 and see which one comes out on top—on paper.

    Apple iPhone Specs
    Screen Resolution: 480x320 at 3.5 inches
    Touchscreen: Yes, with Multitouch
    Connectivity: Quad-Band GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900), EDGE, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth 2.0
    Camera: 2 Megapixel
    Keyboard: Touchscreen/Onscreen
    Email: HTML Email
    Browser: Full HTML Browser
    Codec Support: Standard iPod Support
    Storage: 4/8 GB

    Samsung F700
    Screen Resolution: 440x240 at 2.78 inches
    Touchscreen: Yes, with Drag and Drop
    Connectivity: Tri-band GSM, HSDPA, EDGE
    Camera: 5-megapixel with Auto-Focus
    Keyboard: Slide-out qwerty with VibeTonz
    Email: Unknown (probably not HTML)
    Browser: Full HTML Browser
    Codec Support: MPEG4, H.263, H.264, Real MP3, AAC+, eAAC+, Real
    Storage: Unknown onboard + microSD expansion

    So it seems like although Samsung's F700 has more megapixels, a little bit more format support, an actual keyboard, and 3G connectivity, the iPhone has it beat on screen size/resolution, HTML Email, storage, widgets, google maps, and push email. Plus, of course, the whole built-in iPod thing.

    It amazes me how all these new phones look so similar to the iPhone. Only feature I think is cool on this phone is the camera on the front of the phone, maybe video phone capability?

    It doesn't really look similar to the iPhone at all. If you mean the big screen; it's touch screen, of course it's going to be large. Tiled icons have been around for a long, long time before the iPhone.
