Its specifications seem similar to the Samsung Galaxy Apollo(I5801), aside from the physical QWERTY keypad.
Again resolution (240*400) really sucks. Why cant Samsung come out with a phone that supports the standard HVGA 320*480 pixels for phones in this price range?
Besides that, only 256mb RAM and no promise of Gingerbread(Android 2.3).
I think LG Optimus One for the same price is a much, much better choice.
