Hello people , has this phone got the new Android OS 1.5v like the HTC Hero ???
Had a hands on in a Samsung Rad show today. They told it is to be launched in India(1st Android phone to be launched in India) in 3 months with a price tag of 30K INR.
News: Samsung will use the Galaxy name to make a big category with Android phones!!! As it does with OMNIA for windows mobile devices.... PERFECT!!! I5700 GALAXY Lite coming soon!!!
Android is the future. A NEW ERA/Revolution is coming. Android > Linux; Open Code/SDK, do whatever you want with a mobile phone. Like a small PC in your hands! All other phone OS are OBSOLETE in a NEAR FUTURE. They just simply can't compete with the world coding together. ;o)

Chris, 20 Jul 2009I'd also like to know if this is multi-touch. The O2 rep told me that it was not.Im in the US. Even though its marked as released, this is so hard to find anywhere in the US. If anyone can find me a retailer who can sell this phone unlocked, it would be greatly appreciated. Else, for all intents and purposes, this phone is **NOT** released as far as US Americans are concerned.

Anonymous, 06 Jul 20098gb is not the only advantage. The screen is far more bright while consuming less watt. Samsun... moreso wat? i prefer the multitouch, more ram, more homescreens with more widgets...
wats so gr8 about vanilla android and hving a google logo? led flash only makes the slightest difference for taking pictures. its only really noticeable wen its very dark, and u r close to the object u r taking the picture of. under such conditions u still wont be able to properly make out what u took the picture of so its useless.
