"That's that on the down-market Soul, which does have the good and the bad of the original. The S7330 is in a lower price bracket than the U900 Soul but packs the same UI goodies, which is an achievement. However the low-key exterior shows its modest roots. Samsung S7330 is trimmed down in terms of imaging, but the trade-off is quad-band network support. The touchpad is the S7330 defining feature, but it just isn't everyone's cup" of tea.
"Anyway, we might as well be too picky here and the reason probably is the high bar set by the Soul. The S7330 was only very recently released and price has nowhere to go but down. And that may be the right push for Samsung S7330 to start climbing that lower league it's playing in."
