Say hello to the Samsung SHW-M100S, Samsung's latest Android smartphone and their first to run Android 2.1. This puppy looks to be a good one with a 3.7-inch AMOLED screen, 800 MHz processor, 5-megapixel camera with 720p video recording, 3.5mm headphone jack, DivX support, and your usual slew of connectivity options. Nice, right?
But it ain't perfect. Why? Because the M100s runs Samsung's much maligned TouchWiz UI which basically strips Android of its character without adding anything worthwhile. The M100S will also only launch on SK Telecom and with no word of a global release we have no idea if we'll actually ever see it here in the US. But at the very least, it's good to see manufacturers launch an Android phone with 2.1 already onboard. The wait for 2.1 has definitely been too long.
