This phone is gorgeous, i played with it last month for 5 mins and it really is the phone to have. Not only that but Carphone Warehouse have it available to order in from today (Saturday 30th August) and will have them available in store from next week. This isn't available anywhere else for another 4 weeks as Carphone have it as an exclusive!
etoile, 27 Aug 2008I don't think so it is out in South East Asia.
I am from S'pore. No photo of it in S'pore Sam... moreits coming out in singapore in september. i think we still have to wait a while before it comes out. samsung has a press release on its web announcing it. search samsung singapore on google..it should show the link
All That people look crazy on SAM, even Nokia is Leading 40% of market share, every one should study again, don't be silly
jon23, 29 Aug 2008why samsung didnt put 10megapixel sensor?. : p Because it's a phone 1st, camera 2nd, you want 10mp photos? Go buy a compact camera!
Usil, 29 Aug 2008I actually think Strikers comment was pretty cool. He does have a valid point!because then you wouldn't need a phone, you'd need a full time digital camera. just my 23/2 cents
Samsung Mobile want to be market leader in 2013. With the current condition, I think this is a realistic target. The direct competitor for Samsung are LG Mobile.

i meant the John Merrick one...@Abhi
Sorry if I caused you offence, it was a tongue-in-cheek remark with John Merrick being the ugliest thing I could think of!! The word "joke" springs to mind, and if I'm honest, thats along with the phrase "lighten up"
just ordered this from findamob.com on orange and got it free with 600 min 500 txt for £35 a month but will prob add data. will post my review when the sexy beast comes

i meant the John Merrick one...Ahh apollogies, I did not see your second post...
now, will I get the i8510 or wait for 1 month and see what the LG KC910 is all about.
Going to have to wait 1 month for the UK to get the 16GB i8510 anyway so it will be interesting to see what else is out in October.
Abhi, 29 Aug 2008Striker mate... Uncool comment!I actually think Strikers comment was pretty cool. He does have a valid point!
raj, 29 Aug 2008samsung is in no competition with nokia. nokia is far superior.Erm raj, thats utter nonsense mate.
I think you'll find that within the mobile phone industry, Samsung are in DIRECT competition with Nokia.
And what exactly do you base your theory that Nokia are superior on? Market Share? Bear in mind that Nokia only have the higher market share becasue of their long standing reputation and the sheer volume of their low-end portfolio that they sell to developing nations.
Hardware-wise, they are not superior at all, in fact, based on their current offerings they're lagging. Badly.
Open your mind mate, comments like that make you sound a little foolish.
