To all those people who say there is no flash...
ITS A FREAKING PROTOTYPE! Things WILL change in the final version.... Samsung have been in the phone business tooo long to not put in led flash. The reason why they didn't put it in was probably because it was not deemed important enough to review. After all, MOST led flash are all the same. Its the hardware and software they wanted to get out for preliminary review!
what is meant by price group? How to analyse the rsting of price group?
Is it final that theres no LED flash? That's so dissapointing, because it take all the right boxes, all I was hoping for was to expect a LED flash with such a good HD video camera, you'd think they would include flash for still imaging, that's a step back from every other manufacturer. I may hold & wait for the I8520 or another later high end Samsung, or another Successor to the HTC HD2... if there is one!
Additionally, no amount of DLNA will make up for a physical connection. Not everyone has a DLNA compatible media player hooked up to their TV.
Don't go presuming what other people need/want "anonymous". N97 has 32 Gig memory, Qwerty keyboard, FM Transmitter, FM Radio, 5MP Carl Zeiss Optics, TV Out, Dual LED Flash.
I'd have gone with the N8 if it wasn't for Symbian^3 though and its inevitable lack of applications and dated interface. As it is, I've preordered the Samsung Galaxy S.
Yes I did mean LED Flash. That was always the good thing, go up to an iPhone user - "Can you take photos in the dark? I can!". The i9000 deprives us of that luxury.
you should read the DLNA post below ..
noone needs an FM transmitter, nor video out.
flash is on it's way, you can see videos, already running it on the nexus.
PS: n97 .. superphone .. *hehe*
Although it has Android with its creamy centre, three things stop this from being a Superphone like the Nokia N97.
No Flash, No TV Out, No FM Transmitter.
8 Gig really could do with being expanded - very small considering HD capabilities.
Compared to the Nokia N8, yes, again, Android is the saving grace, but this only has 5MP compared to 12MP on the N8, No Xenon Flash, No HDMI Out, No FM Transmitter.
I just placed a pre-order on Expansys-usa.com for the 8gb for $665.00us It will be shipped on the first week of June. I can't wait to get my hands on it.
I don't think people understand what DLNA means. please read http://www.dlna.org/digital_living/product_types/#mobile_frame and http://www.dlna.org/digital_living/how_it_works/ . HDMI is a physical interface. DLNA is not a physical interface.

This has to be the best Android mobile phone i have come across so far. Its fast, looks and feels great and a very responsive AMOLED touch screen, graphics look awesome whether its images or movies, this device should be the benchmark for all future high end Android phones, very impressed!
