    kinda feeling they Samsung is not going to launch it – may be they are waiting until Apple make a new best-selling device?!..))) but the device itself is very nice I suppose)) the fast that is has a Wi-Fi and GPS modules is very promising)) In fact Android OS enables you to use all 200,000 available applications most of which are free. the question is if they are gonna keep the price so high there will be not so many people desire to purchase it, I think…^^
