People are posting everyday with new information, apprently o2 sent out an email to their shops to say the phone had failed accreditation in the UK. The latest infomation appears to be 24.08.09 release date but everyone appears to be getting conflicting information.

£40 x 24 months = £960
I would never pay that much for a phone!
(even though i can afford it)

I'm after it on the £35/mo 24mo plan, handset price would be £97. On the £40/mo 24mo, handset would be free.

Well I rang so many times now, and usually, whenever I speak with someone, they hadn't heard of it either, but when they check it on the system, the find it and keep saying to me, originally 10th, but still waiting on stock, so can't really say - that being the people on the new customer's department. Whenever I phone my local O2 shop however, they all seemed to have heard of it, but keep giving me new dates they are expecting it. Delays, delays, delays! I'm at the point where they are going to now ring ME when it is available haha!
Oh and I can't seem to access the link you sent, whenever I click it, it just loads this page! =S
Forgot to say at least the d900/d600 type front is good old samsung and thats one step in differrentiating not only the android front but its belonging to a typical manufacturer,,even without samsung written on most of us would recognise it as samsung..Anyway its early days but smartfones cant be all the same they have to be designed as much outside as inside(touchflo,vivid mesaging etc)to make it stand out cause the first glimpses of new models are on a computer screen and if its just the same i tend to just ignore it on boredom alone..thanks for listening..
they could have gone full wack with DNSe and other samsung usuals like sonic wellness,,vivid messaging,,tracker,,etc to make it indidvidual to samsung its no good bringing out the same thing over and over again...It used to be in past loyal followers would go for the same make because they liked the system..The biggest customisation was htc and their touchflo which made windows accessible again so i would expect samsung with their homescreen that changed with citys,,vivid messaging etc to custmise android not just bring one out like everyone else does doing exactly the same thing,,WHY,,because its boring,,and well done to SPB in their efforts to reinvent not just copy..

Some of it is a little off topic as people are getting so fristrated with o2 giving conflicting information!
Personaly I am on a business tariff and the business upgrade team appear to know nothing about this handset!

So I went into the O2 store around a week ago to enquire about it, and the sales rep showed me the database of all phones on their system, and it was highlighted as confirmed for the 10th August. So I rang up the shop on the monday morning, and they said they are not stocking until Thursday (tommorrow). HTH.
Stibily, 11 Aug 2009UPDATE: O2 not stocking until Thursday 13th August.Stibily - where did you get this information from? I have read conflicting information from various forums, including o2 ones.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2009Where is Radio !! :( it come with android! just download a radio app!
O2 UK said it will be release on 10th August on there database. Yes you can port HTC Sense UI onto this, just check youtube for a video of the rom on the HTC magic.
my next phone XD, anyone know this phones screen material is hard or soft? and can it touch by using stylus?
I would definetly not go with HTC. I've been a loyal customer of theirs for quite some time but it's time for something new.
From what I've read the samsung is actually alot better than HTC hardware wise (sorry for being a bit vague on this but I don't remember the details).
HTC are also suffering from not having proper support for their phone (if you ever had any problems with an HTC phone you can end up waiting forever before they even get back to you)
I don't know about samsung but I'm sure going to give them a try. HTC has dissapointed me. The interface is too slow on their phones.
Only thing that I would miss on this phone is a hardware keyboard, but it will be nice to see the display on this one compared to standard LCD displays
Hi people , just rang o2 this afternoon , this phone still coming out on the 10th August . Guy said will be online to buy after 3pm ????
could someone answer my question? Is digital compass important for futher localization? This fone does not have this java. So should I buy HTC hero or give samsung a chance?
Thank u for your time.
why do these android phones never have fm radio?
secondly would it be possible to port the htc hero sense ui onto this?
