    dstrauss,

    Which phone are you referring to?

    &

    What leads you to believe April 11, 2005 is a good date?

    I know you started this thread for fun, so I'm not busting your chops or anything. But really, are you basing that date on anything besides a hunch?

    I'm referring to the i550 and Samsung/Sprint's history with the i500 (which I owned for about 4 months). Part of my choice is a tongue in cheek shot at Samsung/Sprint. The i500 kept popping up at lots of trade shows, but took over 12 months to release (actually almost 20 months from first sightings - check the EARLY post on this website).

    Yes, it's sarcastic, but I just don't see a 2004 release of this puppy. With the i500, Samsung/Sprint said there'd be a "late fall" 2002 debut, then "Spring 2003" then finally "Summer 2003" and they had a late July 2003 release. If they're "unofficially talking about "4th quarter 2004" you can easily translate that to "late 1st quarter 2005, Maybe."

    Just ask some of the old gray beards around here like Shadowboxer and CarlGalgano - they'll tell you how much fun it was enduring the Samsung/Spritn water torture release of the i500.

    Here we go again

    OK Dale

    I, for some strange reason, feel very optimistic about this phone, probably cause I want the darn thing so badly after reading about it the other day for the first time.

    I say, Nov. 26, 2004. In time for Christmas. Yea, and it comes with a picture of Morgan Fairchild, nude, built it! Yea, that's the ticket!!

    Maybe it will be better to lower expectations so people won't lash out at Samsung later, but I believe i550 will launch this year, no doubt. This has been in works for about as long as the SGH-i530, just not released to public so hastely.

    Cheers~!

    Fantastic news Rave.

    As usual, we smartphoe addict are MOST appreciative of you input into this forum. I think that you guys have done a fantastic job on the i550. It, even w/o bt or wifi, I think will be the ultimate smartphone and my dreamphone!! I just see BT and WiFi as two more ways to eat up batt power.

    It's a possibility. I've grown to like the Treo 600 due to the feature set, and the keyboard is good, but I'm still a big fan of the clamshell design. One thing that bothers me is that the i550 looks to be as big as my Treo 600 - just opens in a clamshell fashion. Now, if it's the same size as the i500, then I'll salivate to the release line with the rest of you. I'd really like the hires screen anD analog roam. BUT I AM NOT GOING TO TO START CLIMBING THE WALLS WAITING FOR ANOTHER SAMSUNG RELEASE, I'M REALLY NOT....I'M REALLY NOT....I'M REALLY NOT....

    I am not doubting the development period, but still, I am surprised that for a product to be released within 2 or 3 quarters, no official announcements were made.

    Maybe Samsung has learned a few things with recent "fiasco" with the releases of several smartphone products. If so, it would be a good thing, though.

    Anyway, I vote for NO CAMERA on I550!!! Seriously!

    EDIT: I mean, as a add-on, sure, but not on the phone. I don't want to carry two phones for business.

    Well considering Samsung has announced that its going to provide i530s to VIPs at the Greek olympic games, and assuming that the i530 and i550 are very similar, I don't doubt an August launch date.

    Ofcourse I'm assuming a similarity between the i530 and i550. In fact this is a question I wanted to pose to Rave or anyone else that can clue me in - is the i530 real? Is it going to be basically similar to the i550 revealed lately? Will it definitely be released as a GSM phone?

    Thank you in advance for any clarifications.

    I hear you guys, Aug 1 is optomistic, but it just sounds like a good date to me for some reason?

    The I500 hit the stores late July/Early August last year, so I think they might try this time frame again for another launch..

    Speaking of the I530, I'll be in Greece in about 3 weeks... probably no luck of me even seeing one, but if I did, that would be cool....

    Actually, the i530 and i550 look to be very different. Besides, the i530 has been on the radar screens even longer, and they still haven't released a GSM version of the i5xx series, so why would they be releasing round 2 of CDMA at the same time (or even in advance of) the GSM version. Even more interesting is that the i530 still has a the 160x160 screen (well, I guess they had to empty the supply room some how).
