No Ewan has a thing about the 7650 too. I guess I can see it, but this phone is quite a bit bigger (though is actually thinner).

Eat your heart out Nokia, they've beaten you in your own game, this is the first S60 which doesn't have a feature or two missing.

Kudos to Samsung, you've really grown beyond your girly featureless phones. This baby is PERFECT.

This is going to make upgrade time interesting; had my heart set on the E71, but this could win it. I would like to see picture quality first though, compared to other phones on the market.

Thumbs down

But where's the Xenon Flash?!?!?! What use is an 8MP cam without one (same goes for the N96)! If only Nokia could fit the the N96's insides into such dimensions with such a massive battery, speically since I fear the DVB-H will suck it dry within the hour (another missing feature)!! It also looks like a fat massive Nokia 6500 Slide... And that phone is chubby in its current "small" form!

I think I'm going to stick to my N82 for the coming couple of years as there aren't any revolutionary phones out there yet! However this Samsung is certainly on the top of my "next-phone" list.

The specs make this device beastly. Not touch but specwise, wipes the floor with teh iphone (3g). Will be a major competitor with the n96 if sammy have a good marketing campaign (same os under the case with a few tweaks but a better camera and other things).

What about TV-Out?

The next few months is "upgrade" heaven.

Samsung INNOV8 (i8510)
Samsung Omnia
HTC Touch Pro
HTC Touch Diamond
Nokia N96
3G iPhone

Anymore?

And there is a rumour Nokia will be releasing a true N95 successor. Not the N96 which is just a comparable device like the n82. The successor will blow away the competition... Even this latest Samsung... Put it this way... Like when the n95 was first released 17 months ago it was truly ground breaking technology so will the successor... Say no more...

Some of the online shops where this handset has appeared have TV-Out on the feature list, but the Samsung press site does not have any mention of this.

A couple of others bits of info. The camera shutter opens and closes automatically when you start / close the camera application.

The camera application supports shooting video at 1/4 and 1/8 speeds. Effectively slow motion video recording.

Wishful thinking :-)

Dude, the criminals still move full speed, it's just your video of them grabbing your shiny new phone that will be slow... :P

"Samsung today announced the high-end, featured pack Samsung INNOV8"

What's a "featured pack"?

Seriously, don't you guys have an editor?

It's only because you *later* mention "Feature Pack 2" that I knew you weren't trying to refer to the OS and had missed out the number.
