Samsung's i550 brings GPS navigation


Samsung is certainly busy with new goods lately, but we're particularly thrilled by this, the Samsung i550. Samsung has / had another i550 which was a Palm-based flip from a few years ago, thankfully this handset won't be repeating that OS choice. Apparently packing GPS -- the key for it sits to the right of the right softkey -- runs S60, has a 3.2 megapixel cam, HSDPA -- no flavor mentioned -- 128MB RAM, and all packed in a 115 x 53 13.8 mm package. The pic does look a bit off to us, we're wondering why the lower half -- with the Sony Ericsson-styled keys -- has what looks like a seam running across the handset, could this be a slider of some sort? The d-pad also seems like it is using a trackball, though unfortunately until we get some better shots -- or a press release -- we'll have to leave it all up the air. No word on an arrival time, price of what carriers will pick this up, but we'll be watching things as they unfold so you won't need to.
