Samsung Announces First Android Phone

Sascha Segan at PC Magazine has a great article today about the Samsung i7500, the companies first phone that will run the Google Android OS.

From PC Magazine:

The i7500’s technical specs come close to guaranteeing it will be available from T-Mobile USA later this year.

The Samsung i7500 supports HSDPA on the 900, 1700, and 2100 Mhz bands, and T-Mobile is the only major carrier in the world to support HSDPA 1700. The phone lacks the 850 and 1900 Mhz bands which AT&T or Canada’s Rogers Wireless would need.

Of course, T-Mobile could still reject the phone. A few phones have been announced in HSDPA 1700 versions which never made it to shelves, most notably the Sony Ericsson Xperia X1.

The i7500 features a 3.2-inch, 320-by-480 AMOLED touch screen, Wi-Fi, a 5-megapixel camera, and 8GB of internal memory. It also has a memory card slot, a large 1500 mAh battery, and a standard 3.5-mm headphone jack.

The phone’s AMOLED screen is a relatively new technology, seen first on AT&T’s Samsung Impression, and offers unusually bright, sharp images.
