Samsung’s WP7 Device Details

More information on Samsung’s offering of WP7 devices has come through. It’s nothing new knowing that Samsung would be releasing a WP7 device, but technical details have been sketchy. Engadget has come  across a Bluetooth certification which contains details of the phone, including the name – Cetus (SGH-i917). It looks like it will be available in North America, which sports the following specs:

  • 4-inch smartphone with an 800 x 480 AMOLED display
  • 5 megapixel camera,
  • VGA front-facing camera
  • FM radio tuner
  • inbuilt GPS
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi
  • USB 2.0
  • Bluetooth

– Thanks to Engadget for the heads up

Arguably, the most interesting spec in the list is the fact that there is a front-facing camera. This is not a minimum requirement set by MS, and so people were questioning if there’d be any competition to Apple’s FaceTime. However, this is a demonstration of OEM’s going above and beyond the call of duty in order to differentiate their products from the rest of the WP7 devices. This is what gives the consumers choice, and hopefully other manufacturers will follow suit in order to compete.
