Once upon time there was the G1 aka HTC Dream. The HTC Dream was the first Google Android-powered smartphone. This 1st generation Android phone is not exactly a hot-seller and did not live up to the hype. So HTC announced a sleeker HTC Magic earlier this year. Then on 27 April 2009, Samsung surprised me by announcing the Samsung i7500 – the first Samsung Android phone!

I really want to know more about this new Samsung Android phone and how the i7500 compares with the HTC Magic.

But both models are not officially available yet and there are very few reviews on these phones. Maybe the Samsung i7500 will be available at the PC Show 2009 at Suntec City next month.
“Comparing to the specs of i7500, I think HTC Magic is a waste of time…”
Even Youtube has not few good video on the new Samsung Android phone.
This video on the Samsung i7500 from Tech65.org probably the best preview I’ve seen so far.
If you come across any good Samsung i7500 review, please let me know and leave a comment below.
