One of the integral features of touchscreen phones in the 00s was an extended keyboard. Users could flip out a physical keyboard and start typing through that, rather than access it on the screen. At the time of 2006, the Samsung F700 was following standard patterns; but ended up being completely competitive with the monumentally successful sale of the iPhone in 2007, with only 6 months sitting between Samsung and Apple’s release dates. It had a 3.2 inch TFT resistive touchscreen with 256K colors at a resolution of 240 x 400.
The memory card of an F700 could store (according to their comparisons) 1,000 phonebook entries, 30 dialed call records, 30 missed calls, 30 received, keeping it all in an internal 112 MB of storage.
The F700 would set a strong competitive standard for touchscreen devices in the market, but it still fell behind the times when the iPhone proved a physical keyboard was no longer necessary.
