While there has been a lot of discussion lately regarding the launch date of the Windows Phone 7 operating system, there has been no real word about when the actual handsets will be available to the consumers. Looks like the phones too will be launched alongside the official release of the OS. Sounds like a no-brainer right now, but then you never know. A new post on Engadget however removes the wrap on the official release dates for the first batch of Windows Phone 7 handsets as it gets hold of a document that reveals that a Three UK Samsung handset running Windows Phone 7 is going to be released on October 21.
While the document does not say anything about the device manufacturer, the note however reads that the display shall be Super AMOLED and will come with a 5-Megapixel camera and a 4″ display. That is probably indicative of Samsung Cetus, but we will still wait for an official announcement to confirm.
There is not much to discuss about this upcoming handset from Samsung Mobile. For one, we have no clue about the form factor of this smartphone. Secondly, there is no word on the pricing or availability. Nevertheless, there has been some information available about this new handset thanks to a recently awarded Bluetooth certification.
The specs are definitely interesting. The Samsung Cetus is expected to come with a large 4-inches AMOLED display along with a 800×400 pixel resolution. Keeping with the recent trends, the phone will also offer a 5-megapixel camera though it is not clear if auto-focus and LED flash will be available. In addition to this, the phone will also include a second front-facing VGA camera, FM radio tuner and GPS apart from support for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Besides all of this, of course, the device will run on Windows Phone 7.
A more comprehensive tech specs and pricing details need to be available before you can pass a judgement over this handset.
