Samsung today announced the SGH-D500, a feature-packed new slide-style GSM phone with a 1.3 megapixel camera. The phone includes several key features that have become common on competitors' phones, but rare until now on Samsungs. These include Bluetooth, speakerphone, internal antenna, and 80 MB of shared memory. Most Samsung phones to date have used partitioned memory that did not allow photo memory to be used for voice memos, etc. Other features of the D500 include video capture (up to 60 minutes), music player (MP3 / AAC), e-mail with attachments, and a high-resolution 262,000-color display. The SGH-D500 is tri-band GSM (900/1800/1900) and will be available by the end of the year.

Not in US

Emailed Samsung in Korea and they're not coming out with this in the U.S. anytime soon.

US and Problems???

If this phone does make it to the US, are there any foreseen problems with it. Kyocera has their slider, but ran into many problems with it, how does this one look so far?
Problems? Why? Confused

Do you mean is the slider design inherently problematic? No.

This phone isn't out yet, so it's way too early to even be talking about flaws/bugs/issues.

But if you really want some kind of indication, I would look at...

Is this phone going to come out in the United States?? And if yes when & the service provider?? Cool
Doesn't look like it - at least not yet. Samsung usually does slightly customized models for the U.S. carriers.

They use pretty consistent model numbers, so a U.S. version would be something like "SGH-D505" for T-Mobile, or "SGH-D507" for Cingular....
T-Mobile will sell to replace D405
however, it may be available at certain markets
and the data spec is unknown
This is a beutifull phone for sure. 1900 will work with t molbile so look on ebay when they come out and you'll prolly find one.
