Samsung's first Android mobile phone, the i7500, which we have already noted will be released in Germany during June, has not only been offered a second release territory, France, with an accompanying release date, July, but has now received an official brand name - the Galaxy.
New details for the forthcoming handset have also been revealed as the Galaxy will support HSDPA 7.2Mbps / HSUPA 5.76Mbps (900 / 1700/ 2100MHz), EDGE / GPRS (850/ 900/1800/1900) connectivity as well as a large, 1500mAh battery, according to the Phandroid website.
Other features include a processor running at 528Mhz via a Qualcomm MEM7200A processor, a high quality, HVGA, AMOLED screen that is famed for offering more intense and contrasting colours (ie: blacks are very black instead of a washed out grey) spanning 3.2in. A built-in camera will be included too running at 5-megapixels,
