The Samsung Instinct s50 appears in a blurry live image, hits the FCC
Someone looking for a new Instinct? Here’s some good news for you – a live image of the yet unofficial Samsung Instinct s50 (aka Dash M850) has been uploaded to ImageShack. Well, it’s a bit blurry, but still you can easily recognize the handset’s rounded shapes. Additionally, the phone has also appeared at the FCC by the name of M850. We are not really sure what its final name would be, but whatever it is – we hope it gets official soon! According to the latest rumors, we will see this one hit the shelves on September 3.

this is so lame. i would expect that by the third generation of this phone, they would make it somewhat different. still looks exactly the same, still has that boring uncustomizable UI.

Is that not any different than the fruitphone and all RIM devices? The UI is not waht bothers me, it's the wallpaper restrictions for it and the Pre

yes, the wallpaper restrictions are mainly what I'm talking about concerning UI. "...and the Pre?" I don't understand what you mean, are you saying it's not any different?

i dunno what you're saying. we're talking about having a background while using the phone, not just the lock screen like the iphone.

Note that the UI is slightly different. There is a 5th quick-launch button at the bottom of the screen that was not present on the original Instinct. Also, the FCC notes a mini HDMI output(tv out!), wi-fi, and the 5 MP camera with autofocus.

Come on guys, that is a pic of the s30 in the gunmetal color... The Instinct HD (s50/m850) looks nothing like that. Look at the Samsung Dash for comparison. Notice the original blackberry Curve 8330 in the background? That is an old pic of the prototype s30, hence the fifth shortcut button.
