O2 To Sell Android-Based Samsung i7500 Smartphone

The first non-HTC Android smartphone, Samsung's Galaxy i7500, is set to debut on O2 in August as it will be joining some of the most desirable smartphones currently on the market.

UK's biggest mobile phone network has confirmed to tech website Techradar that it will be selling the new phone on monthly contract only. The i7500 will be in the company of some fabulous smartphones like the Pre, the TG01 and of course, the iPhone 3GS.

The phone is already on sale in Germany through O2 and the Telefonica owned company will apparently release more information over the next few days including the launch date and the price.

The phone is apparently on pre-order at King Of Gadgets for £500 including free delivery. Online etailer Expansys is already taking preorders although it has yet to slap a price on the newest Android smartphone to hit the market.

The specification of the i7500 are impressive; so impressive we found out 7 reasons why you should buy it rather than the HTC Android Dream (AKA G1). it packs a 3.2-inch OLED screen, a 5-megapixel camera, 8GB internal memory, WiFi, GPS, HSDPA, a microSD card reader, all in a thinner than usual enclosure.

Our Comments

The i7500 is certainly going to get heads turning. It looks like the HTC Magic but comes with much better credentials. Android is starting to attract the bigger fish and by the end of 2009, we won't be surprise to get 20 or so handsets.
