Does anyone know if the galaxy W is selling as a quad-band UMTS phone? In the Samsung Hong Kong website the specs show UMTS (850/900/1900/2100MHz); however in the Samsung UK it only shows UMTS (900/2100 MHz). Does this phone have a similar antenna design as the Galaxy S where the 850MHz band can be enabled/disabled by software?

Personally i use Vlingo. Its easy to use and much more intuitive than the stock app found in android. Plus it doesn't have that annoying "talk-back" feature like Siri that makes me look like a dork talking to my phone.

Here in Indonesia, Galaxy W is priced for USD 326, unlocked, without contract. Exactly the same price as Xperia Neo. The Neo has 8MP autofocus & 720p HD with Exmor R sensor. Also the screen is Bravia Engine.

Saw one today priced about USD312. Very tempted to trade-in my crappy SE xperia X10. I think i'll wait for all those accessories (protective casing etc) and more user reviews to come out.

Does anyone know... Does the Galaxy W have voice software that will take instructions like Siri does, for Apple? eg: "text Dexter" or "phone Jane"...?

A true copycat of iPhone, shame on Samsung I hope they change the design and not the same size as the iPhone.

upgrade from SL to W, SL is absolute garbage compare to this phone..
Galaxy W is as smooth as butter out the box whereas SL lag like hell. Sound quality is also better IMO

love every bit of this phone.
