Samsungs Android handset announced

Calls it the I7500

We're not sure what it is with most mobile phone manufacturers and dull names for their handsets, but despite all the excitement of Samsung having announced its first Android based handset, we can but wonder why it's called the I7500, as it's a terribly dreary name.

However, despite the name, this handset is pretty feature pack, if not right on the cutting edge. For starters it has a 3.2-inch AMOLED touch screen display with a resolution of 320x480 pixels. Under the hood you're looking at a 528MHz Qualcomm processor and 8GB of built in storage memory, but so far there's no word on how much RAM the I7500 has. It also has a built in 5 Megapixel camera with LED flash, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, a microSD card slot and what looks like a top mounted 3.5mm audio jack with micro USB 2.0 port next to it.

The I7500 also offers tri-band 3G that operates on the 900, 1,700 and 2,100MHz bands with 7.2Mbit HSDPA and 5.76Mbit HSUPA support as well as quad band GSM with EDGE and GPRS. At 115x56x11.9mm (HxWxD) the I7500 is a rather large, but not too thick device, although the weight hasn't been announced as yet. It comes with a 1,500mAh battery which sounds like it should at least in theory last quite a while.

The I7500 should hit Europe in June.
