Samsung I7500 Android phone to launch in Germany

27 April 2009 Samsung has unveiled its first Android-powered mobile device, with O2 Germany set to offer the handset from June. Although an O2 Germany statement says it is an exclusive deal for the operator, it is not clear whether that just relates to the German market or all of O2's European markets. Pricing details for the touch screen I7500 are not yet available, but specs include a 5 megapixel camera, HSPA functionality, 8GB internal memory and one-click access to Google Mail, Google Maps and the Android Market application store. 

The Samsung I7500 is the first mobile phone launched by a top three handset manufacturer that supports Google's Android mobile operating system. To date, the only commercially available Android handset is the HTC Dream, marketed by T-Mobile as the G1. HTC and Vodafone will also next month launch a new Android device, called the HTC Magic. Further high-profile Android handset launches are expected this year, as all major handset vendors (with the exception of Nokia) are members of the Open Handset Alliance, the Google-backed consortium that is driving Android's development.
