Samsung GT-i8700 is just about ready for an eventual European launch
With September winding down to its final days and October just right around the corner, we're surely going to start seeing more Windows Phone 7 smartphones become official as we head closer to an eventual official launch.

Most notably, the Samsung GT-i8700 managed to silently slip through the cracks of the Global Certification Forum for GSM as it's probably on track for a European launch very soon. Since that there is so much talk regarding Microsoft's next-gen platform going live this month, the handset's recent GCF certification points to its readiness which is generally found to be ready for sale in a matter of a few weeks after receiving its certification.

North American consumers will have to wait on the sidelines for this once since this smartphone only packs support for 3G on the 900/1900/2100 MHz bands. Regardless, Europeans all around will undoubtedly be ready to check this one out once it makes itself presentable on store shelves.
