I've checked nearly all good mobile shops in chennai, but these dumb idiots force you to buy another phone. Half of them have never heard of Android.
I do know the name of one shop where it is available every week. But, due to high purchases, the dealer asked for an advanced payment from me. If you want I can tell you the name of the dealer.
i5800 has a lower resoltion I think, and it'll probably be priced higher. So, it is not an option.
Galaxy S is good, but too pricey for me.
Friends, does anyone tried long press your home key when UR in another application. This facility has been not in earlier iphones, their latest release fixed this.
filip, 28 Jun 2010Why this phone samsung i5700 can't downloads software from internet and bluetooth doesn't work You should upgrade the OS to v.2.1 (Eclair)
remolon help me to remove vibration when i unlock the keypad & typing the nos on dial pad?plz plz
We should buy samsung i5800 .It is better than i5700 and the price will be also the same.
Bought this phone in Bangalore after a week ago, after a month's search. For all people who haven't found the phone yet, mail Samsung for its "privilege partners" in your city.
As far as the phone is concerned, its brilliant. The app store makes up for any deficiency in factory setup. Totally love it :)

As per my analysis, it was available till 18th Jun, 2010.A person had bought it in saravana stores chennai.
Seeing his comment i went and checked with the same shop. They say no stock and donno anything abt when this will be available. They have only i7500, 23000. I dont think its a worthy buy at this juncture.
For past 1 week i was roaming almost whole of chennai. Almost all shops selling mobiles (big or small).Some of their answers below;
Richie street oasis - no stock.
Chrome - It is not released yet.
Spencers samsung dealer - no stock, no idea when will it come.
Univercell - No but, galaxy s will be available in a weeks time.
Sangeetha Mobiles - galaxy mobiles will be available after 21/2 months.
Wavetel - galaxy mobiles no stock.
Samsung dealer in RK saalai - no stock.
mobile store - galaxy mobiles stopped.
saravana stores - No stock and donno anything abt when this will be available.i7500 is available 23000.
So need guys dont waste time in trying these stores. No use, save time.
May be Samsung is using great business strategy here,
They want to sell their new,
of higher price. So they are trying to prevent people buying low priced 5700.
May trying to sell out the ones with their own OS (BADA) released recently, suppressing Andriod. Business wise makes sense.
May be upgrading all 5700s with 2.1 and then distribute in market.
Whatever.I want 5700 ... guys found sold anywhere, plz plz plz do inform. I am very eager.
Hey, I have a problem managing applications, in the app menu( by pressing that small upward arrow, or drag it up), I have like six pages full of apps, but when I uninstall some of the apps(for example from page 4) then empty spaces are left, the apps on page 5 should move to page 4(replacing the uninstalled apps)..but its not like that, pls. help how to arrange them

This phone was added in Samsung India site a week back. Means its not phasing out. Also dealers are saying, phone is being exported to UK/Europe which is creating a crunch in India.
We all need to wait till supply becomes good.
I've been looking for the Spica like crazy here in Hyderabad..
Shopkeepers say it is out of production now.

Android V1.5 does not support Bluetooth file transfer, it supports only bluetooth headset pairing. However Android V2.1 has the bluetooth file transfer support. The update is available in India, so if you get a SPICA with 1.5 get it updated from a service centre!
I wouldnt advice you to root it just to use your live wallpapers. Rooting has more to it!I guess you are a noob in linux world so i would advice you to get accustomed to Android and linux and may be later you can give a try!
And by the way, live wallpapers drinks your battery a lot!!! choice is yours!
