Brand controversy[edit]

In January 2007 Research In Motion, creators of the BlackBerry handhelds, filed suit in United States federal court claiming the BlackJack trademark was too similar to the BlackBerry mark.[6] They allege Samsung has named their smartphone with a word beginning with "Black" just to mislead the customers that would come to the cellphone stores with the intention to purchase a BlackBerry. A month later the two parties settled out of court.[7] In January 2008, Rogers Wireless and Fido Solutions released the Blackjack II in Canada under the name Jack.

Hardware defect[edit]

For handsets manufactured between November 2006 and February 2007, there is a known defect in the antenna assembly, causing a large number of dropped calls.[8]

Successor[edit]

The successor to the Blackjack was the Samsung BlackJack II. It was available in the U.S. for AT&T and in Canada for Rogers.

Awards[edit]

  • Award Winner from CTIA (Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association). "Best hardware from Smartphone/PDA category."[9]
  • Winner of comparison review from 'Samsung BlackJack and RIM BlackBerry 8800' by Cnet.[10]
