New Samsung i8510 INNOV8 eats N96 for breakfast

Samsung have just announced their heavily rumoured S60 super-phone, the i8510. The Samsung i8510 features an 8MP camera with lens cover, 7.2mbps HSDPA, 16GB internal memory aswell as a microSD slot, a 2.8" QVGA screen and even has an optical touchpad for easy navigation. Needless to say, this baby totally kills the N96 and if what I'm hearing is correct, it may even be out in the UK before Nokia's supposed "successor" to the N95....

The Samsung i8510 runs on S60 FP2. If you've previously used one of Samsung's S60 devices, you should know that not all applications are installable. That's not a problem.

Here's the full feature list of the Samsung i8510, taken from Symbian-Freak:

    I always thought that N96 will be the same shit as N95.
    So, nothing special in the fact that Samsung could easily screw it up.
    When they'll nake something really serious, like E90... That would be interesting!
