17+ Androids Assault the iPhone

Not In U.S. Yet: Samsung Galaxy i7500

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).

    the Huawei U8220 is sold as the T-mobile pulse in several coutnries in europe for some time now.

    its basically the same as U8230. wich is sold in several different countries. (custom roms for the pulse based on U8230 rom are available to get rid of the t-mobile branding and stuff from the pulse.)

    i do believe there is a pulse 2 or pulse mini announced but i dont have the excact details
