We don’t know what this phone is, but we do know what we want it to end up being: a Google Nexus S, anyone? Getting way ahead of myself here, but there’s nothing else to go by (this is the first time we’ve heard of a Samsung GT-i9010.) The original Samsung Galaxy S was modeled GT-i9000. An i-9010 model number could indicate an incremental jump, which is what we’ve been hearing about this supposed Nexus S: that it’s a Galaxy S with stock Android.
But that’s only an educated and uninformed guess. For now, this is just a phone with an outline sitting in FCC’s database with 3G radios. The WiFi alliance has also approved the device recently. For all we know, this could just be the Samsung Continuum. November 8th is just a bit over a week away, so we won’t be trying too hard to come up with some answers before then. If anything does turn up, though, be assured you’ll see it right here.
