Err ! Sorry folks unless anyone knows different its not available yet in the USA I just came back after 3 weeks there and no one has it I mean no one, I tried loads. In fact most of the sales people there have barely heard of it. Im told its not good in Ambient (Normal daylight) not A good SIGN for GPS!. All in all a very good hard to beat phone. Remember Iphone has NO bluetooth file transfer (What a mistake) Iphone also has a lousy camera and no radio.

It is launching in india on 24th september at delhi.expected mrp is 35000.
I just got this phone, so far I found unhappy. touch flow as their claim was make me frustation. I couldn't handle this device easily. And the big problem for this device is not easy to phone
schin, 23 Sep 2008what is this HI1 that was mentioned which helps battery life to be longer?HI1 is one of the latest roms available, and is the most stable and officiant for battery life, mine origionaly started with hg5, on o2 in uk. the HI1 is from singapore but is english.
some of these specs for this phone might be better than the apple iPhone 3g but i think people wold choose the iPhone based on its looks and functionality(real word?).

This is my little review.
This is the best phone i ever had without a doubt, but you need to tweak it to get the best of this phone.
i bought this phone from singapure and had the HG3 version on it, it was laggy, the camera didnt impress me, all the photos taken was with a lot of shadows and darker, the heaphones output sound was low, battery life was not great, watching videos are poor due to screen resolution and those were my first concerns.
But after updating to version HH3 and doing some tweaks...
Now my phone is an Amazing Camera phone (after updating to 1.09), even better than SE k790, pictures are nice and clear, face detection is automatic.
Regarding video, the max resolution at 30fps is 320 X 340, or at 15fps 640 x 480. is good for a phone, not the best.
The phone is really fast and responsive on HH3.
Speakers are so damn loud than any phone i ever had.
Headphones sound output is so loud now(after the tweak)
Music sound quality is great for a phone... as an example is way better than my previous iphone or an ipod, best bass and mids... but do not expect to be best than a premium sound mp3 player like cowon D2.
Watching videos and listen music has been great thanks to third party software that makes the task easy, i even see videos at 720 x 480 resolution at my phone without lag, or need to encode.
I use core player for videos and conduits pocketplayer for music.
The GPS works great. i live in mexico
The signal reception is great, call sound quality is the best, nice rich and crisp.
the only things i dont like of this phone for being perfect for me are:
1.- Screen resolution... why Samsung why...
2.- Screen quality, is easy to leave deep marks and nicks on it.
3.- Battery Life, i hear that at version HH3 the battery life is poor than other versions but the performance is overall better than any other version, for me Performance >> than battery life, maybe is a concern but this can be solved by Samsung in next firmwares updates.
overall, this is the best phone i ever had.
Before purchasing this phone my options were iphone 3g, HTC touch pro, HTC diamond, or wait for Xperia / N96, and just decided to buy this phone due to the fact that was the only Built in 16Gb phone with Touchscreen or slide keyboard.

i had HH3 for 2 days, upgraded from HG5, but it was poor, many people reporting bugs, i have since upgraded again to HI1 which is superb, so would suggest doing this, for the improved battery life alone!!!!
