    looks OK!?!?!

    looks good and great features although im yet to use a samsung camera phone that im impresed with. I had the D900 which was shacky, hard light, and genrally dificult to take good pictures on. ive used the first 5mp camera they brought out and this was also the same - dificult to steady the camera to take a good picture. with this in mind i would be sceptical about this new model. bring on optical zoom from SE - it cant be long

    Haven't they seen the Nokia N95?

    The Nokia N95 has been out for quite a while, and has a 5Mpixel camera!

    but the N95 doesn't have an optical zoom - Samsung are claiming it's the first 5MP *with* an optical zoom.

    To be honest the camera on the N95 isn't all that great for 5MP, not for snaps anyway (I'd say my old 3.2MP K800 was better), but it does take decent video footage for a phone.

    Lamb in Pigs clothing?

    Apparently it looks great but (to quote device buyer of unnamed company) "a pig", in the flesh. Bloody good Sharon Osbourne-job if this is true...
