The Samsung SGH-i708 has just hit the FCC and it’s a dual-mode CDMA/GSM handset running an unspecified version of Windows Phone and looking much like the Samsung Omnia 7…

MAh. But hey, he got two out of three letters right, and one of them even in the right position.
On the internet, that's a job well done.

Now that's more like it! But anyway I prefer Nokia with WP, rather than Samsung.

Less than 4" screen, it looks like? Is EVERY CDMA Mango less than 4"??? Best I could tell. Ready for a little variety with the Mango flavor, gang....

since it's almost the same as the omnia 7, it has a 4" screen as well.

I wish they would start releasing some new WP7 hardware on the CDMA side in the states. I have the Trophy but I really want a major high end WP7 device with a 4 inch plus screen and LTE radio.

Agreed. Looks the same as the original Omnia7 that came out a year ago. Wouldn't be surprised if this is just a "refresh" of that phone.

Bottom port is for SIM-card.

Liar.It's the microphone. SIM card is placed underneath the battery.

Ehm, did you check the internal pictures? Go to the source of this article and open the PDF. No SIM-card slot under the battery.

I took this from the user manual which can be found where you've had your pictures:
Install the SIM card and battery
1. Remove the battery cover. If the phone is on, press and hold [...] to turn it off.
2. Insert SIM card. Place the SIM card in the phone with the gold-coloured contacts facing down.
3. Insert the battery
4. Replace the battery cover.
I'm pretty sure the SIM is underneath the battery :)

This is actually what I was hoping for. Hopefully this comes out soon.
