a free app could fix keypad layout to 4 row. Depends if Android store has one. Hope the phone is not too expensive I bet Nokia will annouce their new Mameo around that time to steel some of samsungs thunder and if nokia can make 1ghz and at least 512ram that will be a killer phone.
Nice phone, nice look, nice specs. But I do not get one thing, these days it is almost a must to have a 4 row side sliding QWERTY keypad in such phones. Why does not Samsung understand this simple thing. Additionally HTC was working on a Magnetic Stylus for Capacitive screens, if that too could be added - great. And nowadays 1080p is actually possible, then why stop at 720p @30fps video recording. Apart from these things, Samsung has come a long way & this phone really rocks.
HOPE SAMSUNG FOLKS ARE LISTENING !
Dion, 11 Apr 2010I'll buy this i9000 Galaxy, even if it has no camera built in. I'd better use a digicam to get... moreI am agree this I9000 is the best screen with super Amoled, bluetooth V.3, processor 1 ghz, 9.9mm wow I love this Galaxy s and I'll buy one. becouse with 4" is good enough for reader too..bravo samsung
no i'm not sick or blind. i was talking about the design not its features. some people get too excited on this site. its only a phone.
[deleted post]quite right.samsung has emerged as a striking company.was dumb in past.but hardwork has paid nd samsung is now the top competitor for other companies.nokia is history.for the last 6 months i hav noticed that nokia is no lomqer releasing new technology.only sony had that spark but even that is gone now.other companies have already given out their bests while samsung is working very hard nd has already given out new technology than others.
I'll buy this i9000 Galaxy, even if it has no camera built in. I'd better use a digicam to get a photoshot. Phone's camera 3,5,8...MP? just look good on its screen display...
Personally, I think this is going to be the new "best" Android smartphone if done properly.
On paper the specs look brilliant and beat the crap out of the HTC Desire, the current holder of that title.
Lets see where Samsung goes with this one.
I'm personally stuck between this and the Desire, so fingers crossed! :)

DeniX, 10 Apr 2010Hey guys wait for the iphone 4g it will be the best :D@ DeniX: fail.
iPhone never has been the best... Believing Apple has any "best products" is like believing in the Scientology Church... You pay a lot and all you get is crap.
Anonymous, 10 Apr 2010Yes... LED camera is BUILT IN!
GsmArena never wrote a complete specification of Samsung phone... morechill dude! do understand what i mean. i was just explaing to a dumbo nokia fanboy who told dat n8 will be superior to this phone with great innovations...so i compared the rumored n8s specs to others....
i agree dat display of galaxy s is best in market....
Its really without FLASH ?!!
what about other options like: TV out, mobile tracker .. etc.
The biggest problem samsung has is shaky support and proper advertisement. You know what, in my country for 2 year old spec phone X3, X6 etc. nokia put up huge banners and full page ads in papers in way that you'll probably think they come from Mars or some highly developed alien planet. And N97?? Before seeing its actual review in Gsmarena I though it was some mini palmtop computer or something seeing Nokia's ads. And what Sammy does for my Omnia HD?? Just give a little pic with a lot other handsets saying it has 8MP camera,wifi,3.7" screen and thats about it!!! No mentioning even of HD record!! Just if samsung spend a bit more on advertisement it will take 8-10 months for them to take over Nokia with phones like Galaxy S. Come on Sammy.
Claudiu, 09 Apr 2010My next phone ( after i sell the omnia hd and omnia II )

GsmArena never wrote a complete specification of Samsung phones, because the details described N8 phone when there is not in the plans!
(Except Photoshop Release: P)
Just see "RANKINS"... few months HTC HD2 is first...
GsmArena You are NOT CORRECT!
