Oh yeah! We're getting another Android Device people! O2 Germany has just announced that the Samsung I7500 will be Samsung's (and the carrier's) first Android device. Hopefully this announcement will bring a HUGE wave of Android device announcements. 

Now for more details on the Samsung I7500 which comes with some pretty decent specs:

  • Android 1.5 OS
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, dual-band UMTS/HSPA
  • 528 MHz Qualcomm MSM7200A CPU
  • 3.2-inch HVGA capacitive OLED touchscreen display
  • 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
  • Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 8GB internal flash memory
  • microSD slot
  • 3.5 mm stereo jack
  • Metal case, 11.9 mm thick

Taking a look at the product shot of the Samsung I7500 it looks like it's missing the traditional Android Menu button. Also, it looks like Samsung decided to use a d-pad over a trackball. In either case, we're just happy to hear official word for an Android device--we'll fret the details later.

So what do you guys think, on first impression, of Samsung's first Android Device?

Samsung I7500 To Be Samsung's First Android Device


Design is a bit meh, but the specs look good... and GSM arena is reporting a 1500mhz battery, in a 11mm thick phone -- how come the g1 couldn't have a battery like that?

Love the specs. Can live with the design. Only thing missing for me is an FM radio. And if they put an HD FM radio inside, I'd dump my G1 with the quickness.
