It's well known around these parts that if you aspire to be a highly desirable smartphone, you have to leak out in three clearly delineated stages: pictures, video, and specs. We've seen the i8700 a couple of times already now, and the specs can probably be extrapolated from Windows Phone 7's stringent hardware profiles, but the video, that was the bit that was missing. Until now, of course. Slide past the break to see it smoothly sailing through the now familiar WP7 interface. The video's focus is soft, but it won't get in the way of seeing some truly buttery processing of touch input.
