Samsung i5500 Corby Smartphone now official, Android 2.1 inside
Samsung announced another Corby member - i5500 Corby Smartphone. Despite its small size, this fella runs on Android v2.1 Eclair and sports almost every possible connectivity feature you can think of.
Samsung i5500 Corby Smartphone, also known as Galaxy 5, looks and feels much like the other Corbys around. Still it's the mightiest one among them, running a smart OS and powered by a fast processor.
The full specs sheet is quite impressive given the small size - 2.8-inch QVGA capacitive touchscreen, a 600MHz processor, accelerometer sensor, 2 megapixel snapper and 100 MB user storage expandable via microSD card slot. Connectivity department offers 3G with HSDPA, Wi-Fi with DLNA, GPS with A-GPS, Bluetooth, microUSB port and 3.5mm audio jack.
Samsung i5500 runs on Android v2.1 Eclair, which is just great. Despite the ROM and RAM are still a mystery, we suppose both are at least 256MB each.
Finally, Samsung powered the Corby Smartphone with a 1200 mAh battery, which should give you lots of hours.
Samsung i5500 Corby Smartphone will be available within a week on 199 euro price. It's expected to hit Italy first via TIM and Wind.
