Regarding the graphics is it correct that the 3D hardware acceleration (MBX-lite) is disabled on these 2 samsung phones ?

OMAP 2431 is the likely processor. The sooner Samsung enable 3D acceleration the better in my view.

As these phones are S60, will they be compatible with Nokia PC suite/ Nokia Lifeblog?
I looked at their requirements, and they just said S60, not specifically nokia phones...

I don't think they would be compatible with PC Suite (each model need to be specifically supported). It might be possible to find a way round this of course.

Its not clear which bit of PC Sync is owned by S60 and which by Nokia. I'll try and find out.

S60 is fully owned by Nokia (S60 is software platform product Nokia uses for own devices as well as licensing to other manufacturers to use on their devices).

Nokia's PC Suite will only work with Nokia's phones.

As far as I know, Samsung has their own [S60] PC Suite (which could very well be based on something licensed from Nokia just as S60 is).

Samsung's [S60] PC Suite will probably only work with Samsung 's [S60] phones (or it might even be phone specific; different Samsung PC Suite copy/version for each different Samsung phone.
