Ewan, 17 Aug 2009If you search google for o2 forums then search the forums for "i7500" you will find the thread... moreI was in an O2 Store in Cambridge yesterday and the very helpful guy there pulled up the details for me and showed me it on screen.
Launch date was quoted as week commencing 24 August 2009.
The live date (i.e. when they're likely to have stock in store) was quoted as 31 August, but he said that due to the bank holiday next Monday and their delivery schedule that they're likely to have the in store there by maybe Wednesday 2 September 2009.
There's obviously still potential for that to change if there's product or supply-chain issues, but that's what the O2 store are expecting.
Does this device has digital compass? Many nice android apps profits from this feature..
Re the unavailability of the Galaxy at O2 shops have you tried the Samsung web site other than a down load of the manual there is nothing on the Galaxy at all could it be there are problems with this phone and it has been with drawn has anyone seen a working model?
Why so little ram? only 128 mb? where's 256 mb or 288 mb??? shame on samsung T.T
kindly for anyone who's using this mobile is there language support (like Arabic in my case)
and when this mobile will be available in Middle east

People are posting everyday with new information, apprently o2 sent out an email to their shops to say the phone had failed accreditation in the UK. The latest infomation appears to be 24.08.09 release date but everyone appears to be getting conflicting information.

I'm after it on the £35/mo 24mo plan, handset price would be £97. On the £40/mo 24mo, handset would be free.

Well I rang so many times now, and usually, whenever I speak with someone, they hadn't heard of it either, but when they check it on the system, the find it and keep saying to me, originally 10th, but still waiting on stock, so can't really say - that being the people on the new customer's department. Whenever I phone my local O2 shop however, they all seemed to have heard of it, but keep giving me new dates they are expecting it. Delays, delays, delays! I'm at the point where they are going to now ring ME when it is available haha!
Oh and I can't seem to access the link you sent, whenever I click it, it just loads this page! =S
Forgot to say at least the d900/d600 type front is good old samsung and thats one step in differrentiating not only the android front but its belonging to a typical manufacturer,,even without samsung written on most of us would recognise it as samsung..Anyway its early days but smartfones cant be all the same they have to be designed as much outside as inside(touchflo,vivid mesaging etc)to make it stand out cause the first glimpses of new models are on a computer screen and if its just the same i tend to just ignore it on boredom alone..thanks for listening..
they could have gone full wack with DNSe and other samsung usuals like sonic wellness,,vivid messaging,,tracker,,etc to make it indidvidual to samsung its no good bringing out the same thing over and over again...It used to be in past loyal followers would go for the same make because they liked the system..The biggest customisation was htc and their touchflo which made windows accessible again so i would expect samsung with their homescreen that changed with citys,,vivid messaging etc to custmise android not just bring one out like everyone else does doing exactly the same thing,,WHY,,because its boring,,and well done to SPB in their efforts to reinvent not just copy..

So I went into the O2 store around a week ago to enquire about it, and the sales rep showed me the database of all phones on their system, and it was highlighted as confirmed for the 10th August. So I rang up the shop on the monday morning, and they said they are not stocking until Thursday (tommorrow). HTH.
Stibily, 11 Aug 2009UPDATE: O2 not stocking until Thursday 13th August.Stibily - where did you get this information from? I have read conflicting information from various forums, including o2 ones.
Anonymous, 07 Aug 2009Where is Radio !! :( it come with android! just download a radio app!
O2 UK said it will be release on 10th August on there database. Yes you can port HTC Sense UI onto this, just check youtube for a video of the rom on the HTC magic.
