Has Samsung stolen Nokia’s thunder?

Samsung and LG have both announced Symbian S60 handsets.

Nothing new about that, most non Nokia S60 handsets never make it to the UK anyway.

Although the LG can be disregarded, unfortunately for Nokia the Samsung G810 will directly compete with the N95/N96.

The Samsung has it faults, single band HSDPA , relies on memory card for storage, reduced colour palette, but it excels in other areas.

With a 3x optical zoom, Xenon flash, and a GPS chip usable with 3rd party applications, available in March, plus a decent battery, why wait for the N96?
