Samsung i7500 Galaxy with Android on o2

Thanks to the guys at TechRadar we can now confirm that the i7500 Galaxy will be going to o2.


O2 has confirmed to TechRadar that it will be bringing Samsung’s first Android handset, the i7500 Galaxy, to the UK.

The new phone, which first appeared in the July issue of the network’s catalogue under the ‘coming soon’ section, will be hitting the shops in July.

Although there’s no word on whether O2 will be stocking the i7500 Galaxy exclusively, it’s yet another phone in the stable for a network that already has the iPhone 3G S on a multi-year exclusive deal, and apparently the Palm Pre and Toshiba TG01 coming soon.

Best specc’ed Android yet

The Samsung i7500 Galaxy phone obviously comes with the 1.5 Cupcake update, a 5MP camera with flash and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

It also packs 8GB of internal memory as well as microSD slot for expansion, all in a 11.9mm frame, making it the thinnest Android phone on the market when it lands.

O2 already has a 27 per cent share of the market in the UK, and with the rumoured stable of phones it has for the coming summer, it seems it will snatch even more as consumers flock to get the latest and greatest smartphones.

It should prove interesting to see this handset in action as its up against the current market leader for Android, HTC.
