Is the i7500 the first Samsung Android device?
The German web site Bild.de reports information on the Samsung i7500 they have recently received. The device, says the report, is expected to be Samsung's first phone using Google's open source OS and is heading for a June release for O2 in Europe. This scotches previous rumors that the S8000 would be the Korean manufacturer's first Android release. The i7500 handset is expected to offer 3G connectivity, feature a capacitive 3.2-inch OLED touchscreen with HVGA (480x320) resolution, Wi-Fi, GPS, a 5MP camera with flash, 8GB of memory expandable with a microSD slot and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The smartphone will be powered by Android 1.5 with all the lovely goodies from the Cupcake upgrade. The expected price of the gadget is 300 Euros (about $400 US). Although the pictures show the standard Android interface known from the G1, we hope the guys at Samsung have personalized the OS. Unfortunately, there is no word on its availability in the U.S.

This looks like a really nice phone.According to Engadget it will operate a 1700MHz band. So maybe T-Mobile...
