When Samsung joined the Open Handset Alliance, excitement and anticipation engulfed the mobile world. With industry leading mobile phones such as the Samsung Instinct and Samsung Omnia already on the market, expectations soared. The speculation can finally end: on April 27th, 2009 the Samsung i7500 was officially announced as the company's first Android Phone.
From sexy, sleek hardware to fantastic specs and attention to detail, the Samsung i7500 has it all. Sporting a 3.2" AMOLED screen, 5 megapixel camera with flash, Wi-Fi, GPS and 40GB of total storage (internal/external) there isn't much more a mobile lover could want... but Samsung included more anyways.
The Samsung i7500 is the first ever Android Phone to rock a 3.5mm headphone jack, so those 40GB of storage are sure to keep your music library healthy and rotating. Don't worry about all that multimedia draining your batter because the 1500 mAh battery included with the i7500 has more juice than any other Android Phone to date. This phone has all the markings of a multimedia monster!
Words don't do justice to Samsung's AMOLED screen but if you had to try, bright, vibrant and all around gorgeous would come to mind. The crystal clear view not only makes day to day use of the i7500 more enjoyable but it enhances the entertainment value of videos, games and more.
The Samsung i7500 comes preloaded with Google's suite of applications and services such as Google Search, Google Maps, Gmail, YouTube, Google Calendar, Google Talk, Google Latitude and more! And of course, you can find all the games and apps you want on Android Market.
What may be most impressive is Samsung's ability to pack this incredible power into such a small frame... the i7500 is only 11.9mm thick. The Samsung i7500 is available in Europe and internationally now!
