It seems that Samsung have quietly switched the i300 model to i300X recently. It's not clear if Samsung will manufacture both the models or the i300 is discontinued of production. The disappearance of i300 on the Samsung UK site tips for the future plans of the manufacturer.

The i300X will come with various accessories (travel charger, stereo headset, USB data kit and application & manual CD, desktop holder 10-pin to 3.5 mm adaptor with MIC).
