"We would have really appreciated the TouchWiz music player we saw in Galaxy S Giorgio Armani because of its better looks and Disc View option. We guess it’s reserved only for the Galaxy S lineup."

Not true. It's also present in Samsung Wave. It's exclusive to Hummingbird/Powervr sgx 540 running phones so far.

They over clock it to 800mhz! I thought the MSM7227 has reached its maximum speed at 600Mhz...

[ really ? how?]
i own one, for you just read the review . i
told you, i dare to bet. let gsmarena
compare o 1 vs ace music quality.
2. better video recording , [ okay , maybe it
' s true] ,
off course it ' s better .
3. better internal memory ( 200 MB ) , [ it ' s
true, but dont forget apps can be placed
on SD] ,
but you have to remember, some apps
can ' t be installed SD .
4. divx out of the box, [there is an apps
called vPlayer and it can read maybe all
video format] ,
you' re right ..
5. N-Drive app out of the box , it ' s not
on the market, [not everyone loves N-
you should try it , eh .. what about thinkfree
office app ? .
6. 2GB MicroSD ( over 1 GB on Ace ) [ 2 GB is
not big enough too , SD replacement is a
must ] ,
2GB bigger than 1GB , that ' s for sure . SD
replacement is a must for 1GB SD, eh ?
7. portable Wi ' - Fi Hotspot . [ IT DOES
called wifi teethering!] ,
is it confirmed? .
8. o1 has better battery than ace , but as
you said,. .. who need bigger pro and bigger
screen ? . i think it ' s not me.
d ' you know what i mean ? .

i hope it had better internal memory.

Apps to sd in android is not great.

How much RAM does this have? If it has 512MB RAM like Optimus and priced similar to that then it would be great. Nice looks (Though is a copy job;))
