All those guy's/girls sitting on the fence....First of all Samsung played dirty in releasing Samsung STAR Whithout WI-FI to capture the Asian markets and then to increase market share it has added WI-FI now as it knows that there are few takers for 3G Technology and Hot-Spots are increasing.
Though i am an old SAMSUNG Fan and have used this Brand for the last 7 years. I Recently bought NOKIA 5530 MODEL for the first time 20 days back i am happy with it in all ways.[Except for Moderate Looks] Its ease of technology in websurfing-Camera-Music-Podcasting-screen is much better than SGH-Star.
Wait till its price drops to Rs 12000/- In INDIA which i think is a decent price....then buy it.
This is my honest review.

Yaaayyyy..... finally star with WiFi!!!!! this is gonna be 5530 rival..... Star interface is WAYY better than Nokia 5530 except for the resolution... (240*400 vs 640*360 pixel) i don't need the 3G because it's soo damn expensive in my country.... this is real winner!
