Samsung Corby i5500 getting a dash of the Android dust?
Since staying tight on the feature phone path, Samsung's line of Corby phones have been attracting the mid-end market with the plethora of devices Samsung has offered. Trends point to the all knowing fact that the market is moving towards smartphones – and that's exactly where Samsung is expecting to go with their next Corby incarnation. Approved by the Wi-Fi Alliance recently, the Samsung GT-i5500 is reported to become the first Android powered Corby smartphone that'll feature Android 2.1, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, unspecified sized touchscreen, and a camera that's at least a 3-megapixel shooter. Expected to be named the Samsung Corby i5500, it was actually seen recently over at the FCC where it was missing North American 3G support, but there was an image that faintly outlines the future device. There is no official release date yet for the handset, but the Samsung Corby i5500 looks to make a splash alongside the Samsung Galaxy 3 i5800/i5801 some time “in the next coming weeks” and will possibly sport a €200 price tag.
