I guess this a great market penetrating strategy -"Android". Earlier, OS of these handsets were crap and they'd rely on Android for thier future fates. But its a good thing that Nokia has not really thought of doing that. Apparently, when comparison happens, people talk a lot of negatives about Symbian. Android is a good OS, but wants us to follow what it has to offer and not how we want it. Goodluck Samsung.
the cam has no flash because they have a new sensor with its own processor attached to the sensor. It is mentioned in a press release earlier 2009. Supposedly, the processor has the ability to autofocus continuously during filming and also auto adjust lighting to meet 720p recording standards unlike others that record HD if conditions allow. It also has some tech that Samsung uses in their tvs to correct lighting conditions for still shots and focus abilities from 15cm to infinity(my number may b slightly off). I could not for the life of me understand why there wasn’t a flash until reading that info.
nice so far. Samsung does a good job on most of their products. the one thing they missed on here is not going with an 8mp camera. 5mp is old technology now. and they must use a xenon flash. LED just doesn't get it done. otherwise, good job Samsung.

I’ve always liked Samsung hardware, but their mobile devices have left a bad taste in my mouth. Aside from throwing all originality out the window and blatantly copying the me too phone (which seems counter intuitive to me… if you look like an iphone, how will people know it’s a samsung?), their support for devices already released has been terrible. As much as I like this phone, I just can’t imagine actually purchasing it.
I feel the same way - HTC all the way!! :)
No Flash? what a big F*! Samsung...Maybe I'll wait for Omnia III...

Dude....the iPhone's design & OS are totally stale now. It has run it's course. Th UI is old, & needs some refreshing.
It won't happen though, because Apple KNOWS that there are myopic fanboys like yourself that will buy anything Apple related.
I am 100% positive that the next iPhone released this summer will look EXACTLY the same as the previous 3 did.
Get a grip dude, because the iPhone has run it's course. It now offers nothing new & innovative. It's turning into the Motorola RAZR....& fast.
Samsung always seem to have great hardware for their devices, but they need to do something about their designs. They are just way to bland. There is no sexiness to them.
It's a shame too, cause that display looks like a winner. Also, no flash? What is the deal with that?
v4npro, 26 Mar 2010The price on this will be crazy expensive, around $1000 I'm sure. To much for a phone IMHO.No feature phone, especially an Android based phone. Would cost that much genius.
still iphone is the best, all companies are tryin' to copy the style of apple but how it is saying iphone is only one, rest are copies :D
