In the first time of pre release :
T-Mobile and Samsung introducing something “major” in July?
is it d beam??????
I am very interested in this phone. I would have gone for the Samsung Galaxy but the lack of camara flash put me off. I know the Galaxy has 1GHZ processor compared to this one which is 800MHZ but you will not really notice that. On the picture gallery, one shot shows a retractable arial. What is that about? That is so 1990's. Why the need for that? Mobiles have arials stored internally now. Do any of you know if this phone will have a keypad lock key? Maybe one can be set up as default? It is not that pretty and is a little thick which is required for the projector but has tremendous specs. The excellent battery is a big lure for me as most smart phones have poor batteries (HTC Desire, older HTCs, iphones etc). I am not one to be charging daily and keeping it in the car/office charger 24/7. My current phone the Nokia E72 has an excellent battery. I charge this one every 3 - 4 days. The Beam will be similiar. This is my first choice to buy around October. The Galaxy is a slim outside chance. I am done with Nokia. Ericsson no way. HTC if they release something with a strong battery. Samsung may also release a QWERTY similiar to the Beam, Galaxy or a Galaxy with a flash later in the year. Regardless, it must carry Android.
Not possible to drop one device like this, Its the most dangerous phone in the market, I am waiting for this bomb !
Drop this item ? Samsung would be foolish if they would not release this phone. Some say it will come in July. If this is true I´m the first to buy it.
Great display, good CPU, good OS, great battery-life.
I look forward to this media-monster, though I´m a Nokia-Fan. But the N8 takes too long and can't match the features of the I8520 by far, except the camera - but 8MP is ok to me. To GSM Arena: Are there any news on this device ? Can anyone confirm the release in July ?
Jet is handsome, but has crappy hardware quality.
Mine has problem in its audiojack for nothing (only 1 month of use) and has no repair, then I couldn't trade it for any other.
And sorry about my english.
If there are any Samsung guys looking here. Could you kindly please give us some info as to how long we have to wait for GSMarena to get a sample test unit & preview. With the samsung galaxy & wave almost upon us & imminent release dates near within the same week or so. Guys - you must be working on the I8520.
One site phonedog, may have released specs saying that the I8520 may have 2GB for OS, 3GB for RAM, 4GB for ROM, 16GB for NANDFLASH HDD but I'm sure this is certain to be a rumour. Knowing now that the Galaxy I9000 gets 512MB RAM. It's more likely that we could see a definitive 384MB or 512MB RAM for the I8520 without any doubt.
It would be nice to have any hints or rumours from some annymous spies or people in the know.
Also there are rumours that apple may bring competition to samsung quite heavily if their Iphone HD gets 960x640 pixel res, with over 32GB Internal mem. Their 3GS has 256MB, so it's easy to think that it might easily get 512MB or more to compliment that nice apple A8 Cortex CPU, or ermm... *cough* *cough* ARMS A8 CPU which again apples have put their name on it..
Haven't looked at apples updated spec sheet, but wondering if anyone knows whether the screen is TFT or OLED. Camera is likely to get 5MP. But I will probably be buying Android device most likely. I can't stand not to have flash, google apps' etc...
Any idea how much this will cost?
This seems to be a feature monster, but Jet is the most handsome phone of Samsung.
I hope that Samsung wont let us wait too long for this fone or it only for Korean...i heard that it will come out in July....hope so...
I found out about this phone a couple of months ago and am waiting for it to come out before i buy my first contract phone for my new business.
its the only phone i am interested in at the moment,
good balanced (high end) specifications with a few cool quirks too (projector).
It'll be worth the wait.
does any one know the release date yet?
Pretty soon integrated projectors will become the new norm even though this will mean that your phone will be completely drained out of juice after watching a full movie - in a pitch black room.
I'm all for more convergence - don't want any more gadgets - but I do wonder what more could we possible want once battery performances will be solved for good?
As for me, I'll pick this baby up (or similar since Kyocera has shown that these gadgets can be made and sold next to nothing) for $200 off craigslist in a year or two...
The first Samsung fone i want to buy,but when it come out?I dont want to wait too long like Sony fone....
Yes 800mhz is better than 1ghz because the battery ... and its also powerfull and smooth on android !
A big multimedia phone ! And HD is here !
