Samsung i7110 preview: First look, first scoop

Samsung i7110 puts the latest Symbian in proper attire courtesy of the Soul. Last time we checked, metal still scored high in the fashion stakes, while 5MP camera, GPS, Wi-Fi and the latest Symbian OS promise a lot of action. The large display, the FM transmitter and optical trackpad sure round off a great spec sheet. It seems that we have quite an interesting package in our hands so let's get going - we bet there's plenty to see.

Samsung i7110 is taking the plunge in the swarming pool of all-in-one Symbian monsters. There are virtually no gaps in the spec sheet but the mere count of similar handsets puts the i7110 up against a daunting task. Picking up where the i550 left off and staking on multimedia, the new Samsung Symbian totes up FP 2, 5 megapixel camera, better video recording and much, much better looks. Those seem to give it a good enough chance but the performance has to be there or all effort will be in vain
