Not In U.S. Yet: Samsung Galaxy i7500

17+ Androids Assault the iPhone
By

The Galaxy i7500 is Samsung’s first foray into the Android scene, and it’s a pretty good start. It’s a simple, compact-bar style phone with some very nice features, like a 3.2" AMOLED touch-screen display. OLEDs provide more vivid colors and are easily viewable even in bright conditions. It also has a full 8 GB of internal storage, unlike the 256 MB or 512 MB of its other Android companions. On top of the 8 GB of storage, the smart phone also has an expandable microSD slot. Throw in a 5 MP camera with LED flash and you have quite a unique phone. Unfortunately, with all these unique features, the Galaxy still sports the generic Android interface, and as the Hero has proven, a nice custom user interface is what makes all the difference. Of course, all of this is irrelevant if you live in the United States, seeing that the Galaxy is only available in Europe, and it doesn’t look like there are any plans for a U.S. launch (although there have been rumors about a Galaxy Lite that could pop up here).
