They should have developed touch whiz for android, just like they do on their WIN MO products.
Too bad it has all that buttons(menu, back, four direction key, ok) for a touchphone with a decent 3.2 inch display and a fluid OS. Maybe in the future starting with a evolution from android, the phones which will run on this platform have a more stylish, clean design without so many buttons.
samsung and android is a killer combination! but I guess htc and samsung - at the hardware end and windows mobile and android - software are playing and cat and mouse game. htc seems to have the edge to android, but i personally think samsung is a better fit.
With July release of HTC Hero Samsung totally lost me with their I7500 which was supposed to come out at June the latest. Good job Samsung.
have you guys seen the new htc hero?
those new features like multi-touch, digital compass, etc. is it because of software or the hardware is better?
and also anyone actually tried this phone? i'm guessing the capacitative touch screen is the big plus here. but it really depends on the real feel/responsiveness.
any good reviews or handson video of this?
i know samsung updating the software sucks, hence using android would be a good direction.
samsung > just focus on hardware development would be ok.

The N97 processor is not dual-core, it might be double-threaded. Why are you even comparing the N97 with this Samsung? They're not competing in the same class.
Anyways, the N97 is severly hindered by it's operating system (Symbian)
