Samsungs I7500 Android phone shreds in first hands on video

“Ahhh, much better. That last round of pictures just wouldn’t do. Say what you will about the Vietnamese rock music, this video is the best look at Samsung’s upcoming I7500 – the third Android device publicly announced, and the first to be made by someone other than HTC. Both D-pad and touchscreen input is available. The device is running Android OS 1.5 swimmingly, and interestingly, bears the official model number “Capella 7200″ – perhaps given by a particular carrier. The specs for Samsung’s upcoming Android I7500, in case you’ve forgotten…

  • 3.2-inch HVGA capacitance OLED touchscreen
  • 5-megapixel camera (with LED flash)
  • GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth
  • 8GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot

  • €300 without contract on O2 Germany this July” via

An Early Glimpse of the Verizon XV6175

Verizon XV6175

“Details are starting to firm up on the Verizon XV6175, a messaging-oriented Windows phone supposedly scheduled for release this summer. This has not yet been officially announced, but that hasn’t stopped information from leaking out on it. This device will supposedly be a version of the HTC Snap that has been modified to meet Verizon’s needs.Like its sister models, it will run Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard on a 528 MHz processor and include 128 MB of RAM.The XV6175 is expected to have a 2.4-inch, 320-by-240-pixel display and a QWERTY keyboard on its front. This form-factor will contribute to its focus on allowing users to easily exchange emails and text messages.It will certainly include wireless broadband, but Wi-Fi is less certain. Other features will include Bluetooth, GPS, a microSD card slot, and a 2.0 MPx camera.According to earlier reports, Verizon will introduce this device in June. There is no word yet on pricing, but HTC created this design to be a low-cost option for carriers.Other versions of this model are supposedly on their way to a variety of wireless carriers, including T-Mobile USA.”via
