Residents of the United Kingdom will get a chance to fiddle around with the sexy new Samsung i7500 this very month. It's coming to the O2 network sometime before the end of July, for an as-of-yet undisclosed price. We know that the i7500 (aka the Galaxy) will be hitting the US with T-Mobile at some point this year, but it looks like our friends across the pond are going to beat us to it.

The i7500 is a really gorgeous smartphone. It's got a big OLED touchscreen, 8 GB of internal storage, a 5 megapixel camera, a 528 MHz Qualcomm processor and 128 MB of RAM. The i7500 runs Android 1.5, and is currently the most powerful Android smartphone on the market.
I really hope the i7500 does well, but it would have done a hell of a lot better if it had hit the US/UK 2-3 months ago. Now that the Hero is coming out imminently a lot of potential buyers may hold off on getting a Galaxy in favor of the Hero. I think a lot of Android fans are going to stick with their G1s until the holiday season comes and we get a clear picture of all the next-generation Android smartphones on the market.

The best time to make an informed purchase is probably going to be around October, and things will be much less expensive come December. Personally, I'm thinking of holding out for Ericsson's 1GHz Android smartphone.
