Going by the feedback in the Android Community forums, Samsung’s I7500 is one eagerly anticipated cellphone. The good news is that the AMOLED touchscreen smartphone has cleared the FCC, complete with support for T-Mobile’s 1700MHz 3G network.
While the FCC report contains no new information regarding the I7500 beyond what Samsung themselves told us at the handset’s launch, it’s nonetheless good to see that a US release is pretty much confirmed. Ostensibly similar to the HTC Magic, in that it lacks a hardware keyboard, the I7500 brings with it a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash, plus 8GB of onboard storage.
What’s still unclear is when the I7500 will reach the US market. T-Mobile USA have made no official comment as to whether they will be offering the I7500, and so far only O2 in Europe have confirmed that they will be launching the smartphone, at an unspecified date over the summer.
