Samsung i7500 roundup

Recommended Posts

As we know, Samsung's first Android device (and indeed the first Android device from anyone other than HTC) will be the i7500. Already announced my O2 Germany and Bouygues France (where it becomes the Samsung Galaxy), the i7500 features...

- Android 1.5 'cupcake'

- 3.2 inch HVGA OLED display (drool!)

- 5 megapixel camera with flash (and we know Samsung make decent cameras)

- 8GB onboard storage

- microSD

- 3G / GPS / WiFi / HSPA / Bluetooth

- 3.5mm jack

- microUSB charger (yay no proprietary Samsung connector!)

- 115 x 56 x 11.9 mm

...do you want one yet? <_<

Over the past week or so there has been a bunch of new content about the device, so I thought i'd just round it up here!

Rest assure we'll be keeping close tabs on this hot new device and getting a hands on just as soon as we can.

Oh, did I mention it's expected to be VERY price competitive...? :)

Any ideas of which uk carrier will have this?

Really hoping tmob will.

Well Expansys have told me they will have it sim free in August ( may be towards the end ) and they do contracts for Tmobile.... the problem I have is will this display be big enough for my fat fingures and when will the SE Rachel come out.... eg is it worth hanging on ?

...After a quick Google.....

£360.72 new - Plemix.com

£471.49 new - Handtec

£599.99 new - SupereTrader.co.uk

£499.99 new - KingOfGadgets.co.uk

I'm sure there are more out there but I am guessing this puts pricing when its out close to the Hero.
