Anonymous, 12 Sep 2009well, its no suprise. not the first time they did it. and i think nokia does that a lot more. ... moreAgree..!just like N73 to N73 Music Edition.every vendors do this,just be smart on buyed fone.well,i dont need wifi feature.still stick with old star,he5.for 3G-HSDPA feature?already have my Soul b.he5
hey ths phn is priced at 1ok wth 2gb in india boy... a much better option thn the 5530 guys.. 5530 wl be prced at 14k acc. to users reviewsw on the site.. so star wifi cool i guess...
All those guy's/girls sitting on the fence....First of all Samsung played dirty in releasing Samsung STAR Whithout WI-FI to capture the Asian markets and then to increase market share it has added WI-FI now as it knows that there are few takers for 3G Technology and Hot-Spots are increasing.
Though i am an old SAMSUNG Fan and have used this Brand for the last 7 years. I Recently bought NOKIA 5530 MODEL for the first time 20 days back i am happy with it in all ways.[Except for Moderate Looks] Its ease of technology in websurfing-Camera-Music-Podcasting-screen is much better than SGH-Star.
Wait till its price drops to Rs 12000/- In INDIA which i think is a decent price....then buy it.
This is my honest review.

in thailand, star wifi is already sold 3 wks ago
in my opinion, i rather pick nokia 5530 more than star wifi which cost nearly same price tag in Thailand with symbian os, 3.5mm jack, lot better headset and 4gb MicroSDHC shipped with
yeah but normaly they must bring the star direct out with wifi
Sim, 12 Sep 2009this is verry ditry of samsung to sell first without wifi and then sell with wifi they could c... morewell, its no suprise. not the first time they did it. and i think nokia does that a lot more. theres a few handset that nokia just added wifi only and resold it. or repackaged it with something like no charger and call it environmentally friendly. or just add a movie and a few new themes and resell it for more. or even just adding xpressmusic and call it XM edition. they also have like, internet edition. which is exactly the same but with a hardware button replaced and turned to a button that activates the web broswer. all of this is bs. u should know better, thats why u never buy a new phone right when i releases.
i want my money back or a star with wifi
