Samsung has locked its sights on Nokia with its new foray into the Smartphone market with the G810 and judging by the specs Nokia better be paying attention.
* GSM/UMTS/3.6 Mbps HSDPA
* 5 megapixel camera with 3x optical zoom
* Wi-FI b/g
* 262K Color QVGA TFT display
* Bluetooth 2.0
* Symbian 9.2 OS with S60 3.1 UI
It looks to launching in the European market at first but should gain a North American model before summer of ’08. Hopefully by then the ridiculous price tag of $860 will have been laughed at by our friends in the U.K. for long enough that it becomes affordable to the point where won’t need to hock a kidney. Seriously, $360 more than the iPhone? Heck its even more than the Dell Vostro 1400 Laptop by some $280.
